Brunswick Corporation announced in a recent news release they continue to build on their ACES (Autonomy, Connectivity, Electrification & Shared Access) strategy to develop solutions to further improve boater experiences by advancing the efficiency and capabilities of its core product lines.
In support of this effort, the company announced that Jason Arbuckle has been promoted to a newly formed role of Marine Autonomy Technology Lead. This new strategic position will enable the Enterprise to lead the delivery of highly automated-to-autonomous solutions for the recreational marine industry.
Brunswick continues to identify and establish new leaders with strong technology experience to strengthen its capabilities in autonomy, connectivity, and electrification. In November, Brunswick announced the hiring of John Oenick as Director, Enterprise Electrification, a role that has allowed Brunswick to support and deliver electrification solutions across the Company.
“Automation and control technologies are rapidly emerging critical enablers for delivering innovation through smart-connected recreational marine products and experiences,” said Dave Foulkes, Brunswick Corporation CEO. “Jason is a proven leader who will help us advance our capabilities, providing leadership to our emerging autonomy teams across the entire enterprise.”
“I am excited for this opportunity to lead advancements in Marine Autonomy for Brunswick Corporation,” said Arbuckle. “Brunswick has made advancements in vessel control over the last several years through assisted docking, joystick piloting, Skyhook and more, and I believe autonomous and driver assistance features are the next steps in enabling an easier boating experience. I look forward to working with all the Brunswick divisions on enhancing marine autonomy.”
