LOUISVILLE - Dusty McCoy, CEO and chairman of Brunswick Corp., has been named the 2015 Boating Industry Mover & Shaker of the Year.
Boating Industry editor-in-chief Jonathan Sweet presented McCoy with the award during the IBEX Industry Breakfast in Louisville Tuesday morning.
Besides McCoy, Boating Industry also recognized three other Movers & Shakers at this year's event:
- Carl Blackwell, Discover Boating
- Austin Singleton, One Water Holdings
- Bill Yeargin, Correct Craft
"Among an incredibly strong group of nominees, Dusty McCoy stood out for his leadership through the recession and how he helped position Brunswick for growth," Sweet said in announcing the award.
Sweet cited Brunswick's investment in new products research and development, especially Mercury's new purpose-driven sterndrive engine, as key factors in the choice of McCoy.
"To be successful as the industry recovered, Brunswick has focused on product research and development, bringing a bevy of new boats and engines to the market in the past two years," Sweet said.
