ABYC names membership manager

The American Boat and Yacht Council added Kevin Scullen to its Annapolis, Md., team as membership manager.

“Kevin comes to ABYC as a seasoned membership professional with a wealth of local knowledge and boating experience,” ABYC president John Adey said in a statement. “We are really looking forward to his insight and new ideas.”

Before coming to the ABYC, Scullen served as a national program manager at the National Federation of Independent Business, a 350,000-member association serving small business owners. He initiated several new member benefit programs, resulting in membership growth and increased retention. Scullen previously served as director of membership and marketing services at the National Club Association, establishing a national membership advisory council and building the association’s non-member revenue base.

His nautical background includes working for the Annapolis Boat Shows as a show manager and years of sailing experience.

Scullen’s duties include growing and retaining membership, developing new benefit programs and connecting consumers to ABYC members.

“With the continued support of boating industry representatives we will be able to expand our educational and certification opportunities to enable ABYC to continue to be the go-to source for design and safety,” Scullen said.
