ANNAPOLIS, Md. – The American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) has promoted John Adey to vice president of its technical division, the group reported in a recent statement. This promotion comes after Adey has served for over seven years as the standards organization’s technical division director.
“This promotion is well deserved,” remarked ABYC Technical Board Chairman Dave Marlow. “As ABYC has grown into a global player on the standards front, John has played a key role in our development and leadership. He is clearly seen as the industry’s ‘defacto’ authority on all things regarding marine standards and has literally improved the output of both international and domestic standards through his staff’s involvement.”
ABYC President Skip Burdon said he promoted John to the position “because he has earned it through mastering a steep learning curve, hard work and demonstrated professional commitment to ABYC, our industry and to the boating public. He is the face of ABYC standards around the world and he has garnered and enjoys immense respect of industry and Federal and State governments’ most knowledgeable technical experts.”
