These priorities have become cornerstones of the bank’s character, even as we have grown to over 250 offices in ten states under Mr. Gleason’s continued stewardship.

Turn Key Vacation Rentals
TurnKey Vacation Rentals was launched in 2012 when founders John Banczak and T.J. Clark realized that the vacation rental industry was missing what most travelers value: the fine hotel experience of reliable customer service, cleanliness, and quality in what was otherwise a unique and exciting way to travel.
“As travel and technology industry veterans, we knew technology could automate many of the tasks required to ensure a great guest experience each and every time — tasks that we also saw caused homeowners a lot of stress. Things like secure entry for each new guest, scheduling cleaning and repairs, making sure housekeeping was done well each time, monitoring noise levels… could all be handled via existing technology that was already improving lives in other industries. What’s more, we proved that with efficient technology we could give homeowners excellent service with the assurance of a team on the ground in each market for a fraction of the industry standard of 30-50% commissions.”

Unique to the U.S. market, Entekra’s FIOSS streamlines the construction process by leveraging the integration and application of software, engineering, technology and modern methods of construction (MMC) to consolidate a multitude of tasks that are normally parceled among architects, engineers, building materials suppliers and contractors.

The company is led by CEO Gerard McCaughey and a seasoned management team with unmatched industry experience and a proven track record. With more than 100 years of combined experience with MMC and the use of highly efficient automated construction technology, the Entekra team holds a number of patents in Ireland on the manufacturing process and related equipment.

Freedom Boat Club
Freedom Boat Club was first founded in 1989 in Sarasota, FL. It is the oldest and largest boat club in the nation. The vision and purpose in establishing the boat club model was simple and straightforward … to provide an affordable option to boat ownership and to deliver a hassle-free recreational boating experience for its members.
At the time, the concept was considered revolutionary and break-through. Boaters were either traditional boat owners, or friends of boat owners. There weren’t boat clubs, fractional boating, boating timeshare, or even many boat rental facilities. The exclusive fraternity of boat owners stored their vessels at marinas, home docks or at the yacht club. When Freedom Boat Club launched, this new offering presented an exciting new alternative that opened the waterways to newcomers as well as lapsed boaters.
As the organization began its initial growth, Freedom Boat Club was sold to an investment group. Over time, it became evident that the best leadership for this type of business model would require active engagement at the helm. John Giglio and Robert Daly had both been working for the investment operator, and negotiated to buy the enterprise in 2011. Mr. Giglio bought Mr. Daly out in 2012 and became the sole President and CEO.
Under Mr. Giglio’s watchful eye and passionate leadership, coupled with a committed crew of entrepreneurial-driven franchise owners, Freedom Boat Club is thriving. Today, 20,000+ boaters call Freedom Boat Club “home,” with 165+ locations in 31+ states and Canada with franchise operations situated coast-to-coast, and growing daily.
While the original mission has fundamentally remained the same, the composition and scope of Freedom Boat Club is continually expanding.
Today, Freedom Boat Club welcomes and embraces a broad mix of members to its ranks, from first-time boaters and newbies, to seasoned salts and former boat owners, from young families to active retired. Freedom Boat Club is also actively engaged in developing new and diverse markets. Anyone who loves the water and water-related activities is embraced as a member of Freedom Boat Club!
