Daytona’s Oceans Resorts becomes Ocean Waters Management
|Daytona Beach, FL (January 4, 2004) – Oceans Resorts, the largest private
hospitality company in the Daytona Beach area, is changing names to Ocean
Waters to reflect its parent company’s growing brand.
With the dawn of 2006 Oceans Resorts, which runs a portfolio of 27 hotels and resorts along Florida’s east coast, became Ocean Waters Management. The name change puts the hospitality company in line with its sister company, Ocean Waters Development.
Charles Bray, Ocean Waters owner and founder, explains that the hospitality company is expanding into new areas such as retail, spa, office, multi-family residential, land development and restaurants. The company needs a name that ties all the multi-purpose real estate segments together.
“Everything we do -- whether it’s managing fine hotels, building new resort condominiums, or running world-class spas -- we do along the ocean waters,’’ said Bray, who has partnered with Joe Gillespie since 1988. “We want all of the companies to reflect our unique sense of place. It is important that each carries the Ocean Waters name.’’
The Ocean Waters family of companies includes:
Over the past year, Bray & Gillespie and the Ocean Waters Family of Companies have donated more than $1 million to worthy community projects. For example, Ocean Waters has contributed $250,000 or more to each of these worthy community programs: Volusia/Flagler Coalition for the Homeless soon to be named the Bray & Gillespie Center For Human Services, the Daytona Beach News-Journal Lively Arts Center, the United Way and the American Red Cross to assist with hurricane relief efforts. Ocean Waters is also co-producing performances at the Bethune-Cookman Performing Arts Center and is the official hotel sponsor for the London Symphony Orchestra scheduled performance in Daytona Beach in 2007.
