Cassie Kornely comes from Two Rivers, Wisconsin, a charming town on Lake Michigan, distinguished as the birthplace of the ice cream sundae. She loves ice cream, cheese, and being out on the water. Two River's slogan is "Catch our friendly waves". Cassie and family did exactly that, zipping across the lake on their go-fast boat from the time she was a toddler. Now living in Florida, Cassie is just as active on the Atlantic swells, commandeering the family boat to wrestle a fish or two at every opportunity.
Cassie attended the University of Wisconsin, Green Bay. By pursuing a double major she earned degrees in Business Administration/Management and Psychology. She worked as a bartender, and traveled extensively during vacations. Family adventures in Florida, and the glamor of the South Florida boat shows, inspired Cassie to move to Fort Lauderdale after graduation. Her goal was to work in the marine industry.
Accepting the position as Crew Coordinator with Luxury Yacht Group perfectly merged Cassie's education and experience with her yachting industry enthusiasm. She says, "People are so passionate about their careers in the industry that it's contagious. I get just as passionate about finding them the perfect placement. At LYG we work closely together, it's teamwork that makes it happen. We talk about our candidates' personalities and strengths, and which open positions are an ideal match. We find the right yacht for each crewmember, and the right crewmember for every yacht."
When not at work, Cassie is on her family's center console. She's an ok pilot, feels the need to surround the rail with fenders when docking, but is expert at catching fish. She has a deep respect and fondness for people of all cultures, especially those far from home, which is just part of what makes her such an extraordinary Crew Coordinator.
