Jon Hagenstein, Co-Owner, Beacon Marine

Jon is a cofounder of Beacon Marine. He is featured in our Profiles in Blue in the BEP Implementation Plan. Jon is now serving on the Board of Directors of the Blue Economy Foundation. We asked him about his thoughts on the Blue Economy:

"I founded Beacon Marine Construction with my two partners in 2015. Based in Mashpee/Barnstable, we construct and maintain waterfront infrastructure both residentially and commercially here on Cape Cod and the South Shore. Being a small business owner, I wear many hats. I am responsible for Marketing, business development, bookkeeping, insurance management, among many other things. The company has been growing since day one and I don’t see any reason for that to stop. We are particularly well poised to help combat the ever-changing effects of climate change through the construction of seawalls, nourishment of beaches, and dredging of waterways. The harsh waterfront environment requires extensive maintenance and protection, solidifying our role in the Blue Economy."
