One of my favorite parts of the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo is the Industry Leaders Panel that wraps up the conference. It’s a great chance for dealers to ask a group of top industry execs any question about the industry.

I’ll be moderating the panel for the second year in a row and we’ve got a great line-up this year:

  • Rick Correll, President of Tige Boats
  • Ron Huibers, President of Volvo Penta Americas
  • Jim Lane, President of Chaparral
  • Bill McGill, President/CEO of MarineMax
  • Mark Schwabero, President of Mercury Marine

Plenty of dealers told me last year’s panel was one of the highlights of the conference. I was impressed by the panelists’ willingness to answer the questions the audience threw at them. They didn’t dodge the questions and offered well-thought-out and honest answers.

I’ve got lots of my own questions to ask them, but I’m counting on the audience members to really make this a great event. There’s still time to register for MDCE at

If you can’t make it or just want to submit your question in advance, simply email them to me at

Hope to see you soon in Orlando!
