Based on his extensive experience and record of performance, Ron is the right person to continue to grow our business and strengthen our already strong market positions in the Americas.”

    Clint was a class act and alway a stright shooter. Enjoy the next phase in your life Clint. Thank you for your years of service to our industry.

    Clint is a credit to the marine industry. I met Clint in my early days in the industry and said this is somebody I want to know better. I wasn’t wrong.
    Enjoy your retirement, you have earned it.

    All the best,
