Proven leader takes helm of Oak Bay Marine Group

Peter Ciceri steps into some legendary shoes this July, as he takes over the Oak Bay Marine Group of Companies as chief executive officer.

After many years as a successful CEO, corporate director, and international executive, Victoria-based international businessman Ciceri has a successful private practice as an executive coach and corporate director, helping CEOs build through effective leadership and management practices.

“Peter brings a wealth of experience to the table and we are delighted to have him aboard” said Director Sharon Halkett.

“As we continue to build upon Bob Wright’s legacy, Peter’s guidance will be a tremendous asset to the management team.”

Wright started the company in 1962 with the Oak Bay Marina and was a true west coast entrepreneur, eventually operating a diverse array of businesses in three countries. Wright was known to be singularly focused on his business empire until his death in April of last year.

 

The Oak Bay Marine Group employs approximately 600 people and operates world class resorts, marinas, and tourist attractions in Canada, the United States, and the Bahamas.
