During his time with Mercury, Halley and his team worked on Mercury’s outboard platforms, including the 150-hp FourStroke, the 75-115 FourStroke and the 3.4L V-6 outboards that were introduced at the Progressive Miami International Boat Show in February.

“Stuart has held many leadership positions since coming to Mercury in 1993,” said John Pfeifer, Mercury Marine president, in a statement. “His engineering background and proven success will be integral as we continue to grow the Mercury Racing brand around the world.”

Prior to Mercury, Halley worked at General Dynamics and Lockheed in Ft. Worth, Texas, and was involved with the F-16 National Aero-Space Plane (X-30) and F-22 aircraft programs. He holds a bachelor of science degree in aerospace engineering from Iowa State University.

Halley replaces Erik Christiansen who left the company in March.
