Director of Operations
When asked about her time at the company, Maia commented: “I have been sailing with Juan since we were both in our 20’s, (a looooong time a ago). And I even endured a great deal of bruises thanks to all of that J24 roll tacking. I'm SURE there will be more bruises and great memories to come!” Maia was born in Peru to an Italian family, and grew up speaking Italian and Castilian (Peruvian Spanish, which is like Spanish, but sounds nothing like Spanish!).
Moving forward, Juan started the business and within a couple of weeks asked Maia to join as co-founder and to manage the daily operations of the new company. As the company grew, her position and role within the company evolved into a much larger position of responsibility she became the Director of Global Operations.
Being a business owner and developer in other industries and friends with Juan and Maia for a long time, Johnny decided to join Mauri Pro with plans to bring some of his business experience and passion for the ocean to this awesome sailing crew. Johnny's life is devoted to the ocean. He was born in a distant and remote small mining campsite in southern Peru, South America. Established right on the beach in one of the sunniest, windiest and most beautiful beaches in the South Pacific Ocean.
He has been playing on floating, sailing and surfing devices since he can remember. Johnny began surfing when he was 11, and he went to Hawaii a few times in my 20s to experience the aloha lifestyle and surf big waves. Now he spend most of my time sailing J24s, cruisers and ORC racers. Johnny loves offshore sailing in big waves on windy days!
Order Processing and Logistics Manager
Stephanie runs our order processing and logistics department. Stephanie has been with Mauri Pro Sailing for since 2012 and has been influential in developing the reliable and self sustaining logistics required for fully processing your orders. Stephanie's background in sailing revolves around large yachts and cruising up and down the beaches of Southern Florida. When she arrived to Texas, the first boat she crewed on was a Farr 39ML and then a Lee 69. Needless to say, Stephanie was expecting to be able to hold her drink (Malibu and OJ with no pink umbrella) and sail. After getting a taste of the racing life, Stephanie was hooked! She's always down to sail and enjoys doing racing committee.
