Dave Taylor resigns from US Marine

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Long-time Brunswick Corp. employee and US Marine Senior VP of Sales and Marketing Dave Taylor has resigned.

In a phone interview yesterday, Taylor said there has been “a lot of cultural change” at US Marine over the past 5 years, which has positively impacted the company. “It’s now the right time for me to put myself in a different environment.”

Taylor explained that he “agrees with where the company is going,” but he felt the need to move on “to continue to grow personally.” With the restructuring, the opportunity was right for everyone, he added. Taylor actually left the company about a week before Brunswick reported that US Marine would be included as part of its cost-cutting efforts.

Now, he’s concentrating on finishing his MBA, something he expects to complete sometime next year. He’s not sure whether the next step will be into the manufacturing or the retail sector of the boating business. Taylor actually has experience in both, and he said he truly enjoys interacting with customers, something he looks forward to expanding upon in his next role.

His career began as a boat broker on the Chesapeake, something that transitioned into various positions at boat dealerships before landing him in the manufacturing realm. He actually was working for Baja Marine when Brunswick acquired the company in late 1994 and was named president of the boat company in 1999. It wasn’t until 2001 that Taylor joined US Marine as part of its turnaround team, following his passion for sales and marketing.

“I am very proud of my contributions to the turnaround of US Marine over the past 5 years, and I look forward to putting my strengths and experience to work in the marine industry in the future,” Taylor concluded.
