MarineMax chief operating officer and executive vice president Edward Russell recently resigned.

Russell, who has been with MarineMax for 28 years, resigned Monday, according to a filing the company made with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Russell's principal duties at the Clearwater-based recreational boat dealer will be assumed by others in the company, the filing showed.

MarineMax spokesman Brad Cohen told Soundings Trade Only that the company does not want to say at this time whether someone from within would be assuming Russell's role.
