Kohler Power Systems' marine business sales leader Mike Bingen retires this week.

Bingen started his career with Kohler in 1982 as an account executive, later serving for many years as the company's manager of marine sales. For the last five years he was the director of Marine-Worldwide.

Under Bingen's leadership, the company's marine power business grew substantially and played a significant role in the division's product development, according to the company. Under his leadership, Kohler became the first marine generator company to manufacture its entire gasoline generator line with low-CO technology, and last year, the division expanded its diesel generator line up to include 350 kW to serve a growing commercial marine market.

Bingen will continue to reside in Wisconsin, and enjoy retirement with his wife, Sharon.
