Newport Exhibition Group, owners and producers of the Newport International Boat Show (NIBS), announced on January 5 that after running the show for more than two decades, show manager Nancy Piffard is retiring. Desiring continuity of leadership, Lisa Knowles, who served as the Salon’s senior sales manager, was promoted to replace Piffard. To ensure a smooth transition, Piffard will continue to play a consulting role until early spring.

During his tenure, Piffard received numerous accolades. Recently, she was recognized as a 2021 Women of Distinction winner by the Newport Chamber of Commerce and, in 2019, one of The nautical industry Women making waves. In 2017, Piffard and his team were awarded the Rhode Island Marine Trade Association (RIMTA) Anchor Award – as outstanding advocates for promoting Rhode Island’s marine industry. Piffard will leave behind a legacy in the form of establishing the Newport For New Products awards program over 15 years ago and was instrumental in bringing in-water training to the show.
