9/15/16: New England Boatworks Hires New Project Manager: PJ Schaffer
New England Boatworks Inc. (NEB), a custom boat builder and full service marina, has added Philip (PJ) Schaffer to our management team. PJ joins NEB as a project manager with a focus on increasing efficiency and productivity through process improvement.
In this return to the marine industry, PJ brings with him a wealth of knowledge in both engineering and manufacturing optimization. He joins us most recently from Focal Upright Furniture where he was brought on to optimize the operations department. Prior to that he held engineering and management positions at Hall Spars and Harken, Inc.
PJ is an avid sailor with experience on the US Sailing Team in the Tornado Class in addition to top-three finishes at multiple National and World Championship events in various classes. He also enjoys day sailing on his Dragon Class Sailboat as well as summer cruising with his wife and daughter. As such, PJ brings not only his engineering and process improvement skills to our team, but also the ability to relate well from his own experience to fellow avid boaters.
We are excited to have PJ join our team and are confident he will play a key role in driving project success and customer satisfaction at New England Boatworks.
