RBFF names Dammrich board chairman

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Thom Dammrich has been named chairman of the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation’s Board of Directors, RBFF reported in a statement today.

Dammrich, who currently serves as president for the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and Grow Boating Inc., will work closely with RBFF leadership to set and achieve strategic goals, according to RBFF.

“Thom is an outstanding leader and is well-recognized for the contributions he has made to the boating industry,” said RBFF President Frank Peterson. “He has a unique understanding of industry concerns, market forces and consumer marketing that make his chairmanship especially important at this time in RBFF’s evolution.”

“I am very enthusiastic about taking on the role of Board Chairman,” Dammrich said. “Increasing participation in boating and fishing is critical for all of us in the industry. Without new participants we have no future customers. Equally important, research is now showing how essential outdoor recreation is for our nation’s youth. I believe in RBFF’s mission and I’m honored to help.”

Dammrich is a long time proponent of collaboration between industry organizations, RBFF explained. He serves on several industry boards including: American Boat & Yacht Council, American Recreation Coalition and International Marine Certification Institute, American Sportfishing Association, International Council of Marine Industry Associations and Sail America.

Officially elected at RBFF’s January Board meeting in Tampa, Fla., Dammrich succeeds ZEBCO President Jeff Pontius.
