PARKLAND, FL, September 30, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Kyle A. Roney, MBA, has been inducted into Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
After earning a Bachelor of Science in education from the State University of New York at Oneonta in 2005, Mr. Roney began his career as a teacher and then transitioned into the marine industry in sales and later management and it was during this time he earned a Master of Business Administration from Florida Atlantic University in 2012. Mr. Roney attributes his success to perseverance and integrity and his life motto is, "Always do what's right".
From 2005 to 2007, Mr. Roney was a fifth-grade science teacher at Pembroke Lakes Elementary School in Broward County, Florida. Mr. Roney's two great mentors were his high school wrestling coaches and Phys Ed. teachers, Charles Hughes and Jim McCloe, and Mr. Roney credits them, along with his father, Frank Roney III, for being major influences on his career choice.
While teaching, Mr. Roney's ambition drove him to seek opportunities and he ultimately had a total of five jobs at one time, one of which was a part time car salesman on nights and weekends. This began his career in retail sales. Mr. Roney thoroughly enjoyed the sales industry and therefore soon made the switch from teaching and his 4 part time jobs to a focused career in retail sales. Not long after realizing that his future was in retail, he also knew that the marine industry would be the best fit for him as this is where his passion lies. So, he switched from selling cars to selling boats and yachts. From 2007 until December of 2012, he was a Sales Consultant at MarineMax, Inc, where he became a top performer, and then from January 2013 to June 2014, he worked as an Area Training Manager for Southeast Toyota, a division of JM Family Enterprises. Mr. Roney later returned to MarineMax as a Sales Manager for one year in 2014 and was promoted to General Manager in 2015 at the Pompano Beach location. In 2016, he also became the General Manager for the MarineMax Palm Beach at PGA Marina location where he presently leads both stores, which are among the top dealerships in the nation.
Mr. Roney predicts that in five years' time he will still be working in the marine industry with MarineMax and intends to do so in his present role. In his words, the next forward career progression within the company would mean less time to be spent with his sales teams and pull him further away from the transactions, and according to him, less time with the best part of the current job, the customers. So, for now, he remains content in his current position striving to grow the stores' business and help develop his team members. Outside of work Mr. Roney is a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity and the March of Dimes. He is family oriented and enjoys spending his free time partaking in outdoor activities such as boating, camping, hiking, hunting, and most of all, time with his beautiful wife and their two amazing children.
