As we expand our team, it’s important that we bring on additional hard-working individuals to provide premium service to the wide variety of local and international guests that visit the marina each season.”

Scorpion Bay Announces New Management
While she is excited about new team members, Lovelady is also a recent addition to the Scorpion Bay team. According to Desert Troon Companies, which manages the marina, Lovelady is an experienced marina manager who serves as the members’ primary point of contact. She also focuses on boat storage, managing rental boat projects, member services and other operational and human resources-related responsibilities.

“Lynn has a wealth of marina, rental and operational experience, is adept at building staff and strengthening internal teams, serving members, creating superb hospitality experiences and coordinating with multiple government, public and private entities to move projects forward,” shares Jon Coulter, development vice president and director at Desert Troon Companies. “Most recently an award-winning marina director at Lake Powell, she excels at all aspect of marina leadership – from budgets and operations to premier member and employee services.”

Throughout her career, safety has been a priority for Lovelady. At Lake Powell, she focused on the large marina fleet rental operation and the management of more than 170 employees.

“Lynn is people-centric, an adept problem solver, steady, efficient and is an excellent leader,” Coulter says. “She has earned accolades and professional recognition throughout her career, and we anticipate continued success with our Scorpion Bay team.”
