CRS Welcomes Spencer Wiberley as the Trailblazing National Business Development Specialist

We are pleased to announce the groundbreaking appointment of Spencer Wiberley as the new National Business Development Specialist. With over two decades of experience in transforming waterfronts into thriving recreational hubs on a large scale, Spencer’s addition is a reinvestment into CRS’ mission to inspire the human spirit through active recreation.  

Spencer’s impressive achievements of establishing global junior sailing association programs and competitions along with waterfront operational development coincide with CRS’ mission to deliver solutions that drive results for CRS clients. With his consultation and expertise, Spencer will undoubtedly help our clients take a prosperous leap into the growing market by expanding, enhancing or building their recreational facilities from the ground up.
