West Marine CEO Matt Hyde To Depart

November 2017 News Web Exclusive

West Marine, Inc., recently announced the departure of Chief Executive Officer Matt Hyde after five years of service. Under his leadership, West Marine has transformed from a recognized boat parts retailer to a broader waterlife outfitter for both retail and professional customers. If you’re looking for anything from gift ideas for the pontooner in your life to recreational boating supplies to round out your own needs, you’ve probably checked out West Marine for ideas and thus benefitted from the former CEO’s hard efforts; part of the legacy Mr. Hyde has left behind includes his reputation for improving customer experiences throughout the physical retail footprint, improving the online experience and enhancing a curated product assortment that repositioned this company as a leading retailer of waterlife products and services.

West Marine was purchased by Monomoy Capital Partners in a $328 million acquisition back in September.
