"It's not going to be filled at this current time," Brunswick spokesman Dan Kubera said of Mackey's position, in an interview this morning with Soundings Trade Only.
Kevin S. Grodzki, president of MerCruiser, will add Mercury Racing and MotoTron to his current responsibilities for sterndrive, inboards, Teignbridge Propellers and Cummins MerCruiser Diesel.
Mark D. Schwabero, president of Mercury Outboards, will head up Mercury Focused Businesses, service and parts, and research and development, in addition to his current outboard responsibilities.
"We're fortunate in that Kevin and Mark have been in those jobs and have played integral roles in shaping Mercury's strategy," said Kubera.
Grodzki, 52, and Schwabero, 55, are vice presidents of Brunswick Corp., and will report directly to chairman and CEO Dustan E. McCoy.
"We believe this new structure will not only result in increased efficiency and accountability, but will also ensure that advances in product innovation and quality aimed at better serving our customers will continue," McCoy said in a statement.
Additionally, Stephen M. Cramer, 44, was named to the newly created position of vice president and chief financial and administrative officer for Mercury Marine. Cramer most recently was chief financial officer for Mercury. He will be responsible for all finance functions throughout Mercury as well as human resources, information technology, legal and strategic planning and business development. Cramer also will report to McCoy.
