BlueGate Boat & RV Storage, an affiliate of Madison Capital Group, has named David Pagliughi the new Director of Marina Operations. Pagliughi brings over twenty-five years of marine industry experience, with fourteen years dedicated to marina management, construction, design and operations.

A native of the coastal town of Swansboro, North Carolina, Pagliughi studied business management at UNC Wilmington and currently resides in the Lake Norman area. His extensive background in business-to-business sales, dealer relationship management, and recreational marine sector expertise will be invaluable assets to BlueGate’s growth and success.

“Dave’s experience in the recreational marine sector will be a tremendous asset to our team as we strategically expand in the fast-growing space,” said Ryan Hanks, CEO of Madison Capital Group. “With a strong record of successful sales and marketing initiatives, he will be critical in leading the operations of our marina assets as we continue to acquire and build new properties.”

Before joining BlueGate, Pagliughi was a regional sales manager with Sunstream Corporation, where he managed all sales, distribution, training, dealer recruiting and customer service for a fifteen-state territory throughout the South. Previously, he was the director of sales and marketing for The Rowboat Companies.

Pagliughi’s career also includes significant roles at MSC Development, where he managed the overall business operations of the Morningstar Marinas location in Mooresville, N.C. At Stillwater Company, he provided business services and consulting for the marine and real estate development industries and Bertram Yacht in Miami, Fla., where he led domestic and Latin American sales.

BlueGate Boat & RV Storage was formed to capitalize on the growing demand for high-quality boat and RV storage solutions, focusing on the development, ownership, and management of these specialized facilities. Under Pagliughi’s leadership, BlueGate aims to enhance its services and expand its footprint.
