According to Matt’s father, Mark, who co-owns the Sunrise Beach, Mo., business his father, Dennis, started in 1975 with his brother, Mike, the Young Leader Award recognizes young professionals under 40 who have made significant contributions to the marina and boatyard industry and collectively promise to play a big role in shaping its future.

The proud father said Matt has been around the business all of his life, but officially joined the staff at Poly Lift Boat Lifts in 2010. He has worked his way up in the company and currently serves as the Assembly, Installation and Service Manager.

“Matt is a young man who actually understands that hard work gets you places and nobody is going to hand it to you,” Mark Maasen said. “He has encouraged other young adults to come to work for us and embrace his work ethic, and because of his leadership and enthusiasm we have the best team in the industry.”

At the annual Docks Expo, which is presented by Marina Dock Age, a company dedicated to serving marina and boatyard management, awards were presented to young marina and boatyard owners, managers and staff; marina consultants, engineers or other professional service providers; manufacturers and suppliers of marina and boatyard products, or other professions that rely on the marina and boatyard industry for their businesses.
