Mike Aiello, National Director of Special Projects for MarineMax, celebrates 35 years in the boating industry.

Mike pursued an accounting degree in college where he became interested in the boating industry. He started with Merit Marine in 1985, where he ran a very successful business, ultimately leading to one of the first acquisitions of MarineMax in 1999. Mike's experience and business acumen were immediately recognized, and he was appointed a Regional President and later Vice President. During his tenure, in addition to his home state of NJ, Mike has overseen operations in Maryland, Ohio, Minnesota, and New York and assisted with five acquisitions.

When asked about his thoughts on the last 35 Years, Mike stated, "Integrity is the most important asset anyone can have in business, without it, it is nothing. I've been extremely fortunate to work in an industry that I truly enjoy. I'm looking forward to continuing my career here at MarineMax!"

Mike lives on the water and enjoys leisure days on the bay in his Boston Whaler 15 Montauk with his wife Virginia (Cissy), his three children, and his five grandchildren.

MarineMax strives to provide an array of opportunities for their team members to become the very best. In their continued growth, MarineMax is proud to have enthusiastic, talented, and highly motivated team members such as Mike Aiello.
