Brent started Stokes Marine, Inc. from his passion for the water and boating combined with his strong desire to be an entrepreneur. After five years of selling pharmaceuticals and earning several sales honors with Merck & Co. in Southwest FL, the time was right in the January of 2003! He resigned from Merck & Co., purchased a barge and crane and began building what is now Stokes Marine, Inc.
He completed high school at Fort Myers High and continued his education at the University of Florida where he graduated with a degree in Marketing. He learned a great deal about running a business and producing a quality product to last for many years to come from his parents who own and run Wyman Stokes Builder, Inc. a successful custom home building business out of Fort Myers FL. There is no question his desire to be a business owner stems from his parents.
As a waterfront property owner himself, he is aware of the difference a great marine improvement in the form of a dock and boat lift can make when it comes to enjoying your waterfront property and making the most out of your investment. As an avid fisherman and life time boater he has spent most of his time on the water either working or enjoying our great resource with family and friends.
Stokes Marine, Inc. was started with a strong commitment to designing and building a dock that will meet all the needs and exceed the expectations of our customers. This vision is what guides him while overseeing all the daily operations including earning your business during the bid process, double checking the quality and progress during construction, and ensuring successful inspection of your marine improvement.
