“I have long been a fan of Sail Newport and been amazed at the scope of services they provide,” Corriveau said.  “From partnering with the MET school to get kids on the water for the first time to running world class sailing events – and everything in between, Sail Newport exists to make sailing and Narragansett Bay accessible for our community,  I am thrilled to be part of the team,” she added.

Read said, “Carole has tremendous experience and she will help Sail Newport achieve our exciting plans for the future growth and expansion of public access and community programs. We are thrilled to have her onboard,” he added.
Corriveau previously served as chief development officer at the Massachusetts-based Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences and in similar roles at Bradley Hospital, Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island, Bay Farm Montessori Academy in Duxbury, MA with South Shore Hospital in Weymouth, MA and with BankBoston.
