Glosten’s director of business development, Maggie Moon, was among 20 women selected for Marine Log’s Top Women in Maritime list. For the past few years, the magazine has recognized women who have cultivated successful careers in the maritime industry and distinguished themselves through their outstanding accomplishments. Maggie is no exception.
Maggie got her start in the maritime industry in 2011, though her first exposure to the world of boats began on the south shore of Lake Erie where she was raised and where her father builds and restores vintage wooden runabouts. She earned her bachelor’s degree in business economics from Cleveland State University, and eventually moved to Seattle where she accepted an entry level position at Glosten’s front desk.
From there, Maggie acquainted herself with virtually all aspects of business administration at Glosten and soon realized her true passion was in marketing and business development. By 2019, her unflagging work ethic and ability to move the company forward had propelled her to her position as director of business development. Today, she is an integral part of Glosten leadership and a primary strategic advisor.
“My career trajectory began way outside of the core disciplines of a naval architecture firm,” said Maggie. “I’m proud that I was able to bring a unique perspective that added so much value to the company that I am now a principal and serving on Glosten’s leadership team.”
As a leading outward face of the company, Maggie is actively engaged in the industry and most enjoys growing relationships with partners and clients. Within the company, she develops and implements targeted marketing and business development strategies critical to the ongoing success of Glosten.
Maggie understands that people and the work communities they create are the real value in our professional lives. She has a passion for success in business, but the people she works with—inside and outside of Glosten—are what brings her joy.
“I feel so lucky that I get to do this job every day,” Maggie said. “Hands down, I’m most proud to work alongside so many passionate and crazy smart individuals that are truly committed to tackling the increasingly complex challenges faced by our industry.”
