Changing Places

Roch Lambert, vice president and general manager of the Ski-Doo, Sea-Doo and Evinrude division at BRP, recently left the company.

"Roch has decided to reorient his career outside BRP," company spokeswoman Julie Johnson said in an e-mail to Soundings Trade Only.

Johnson said there isn't a replacement for Lambert. "However, we have reorganized in an effort to consolidate the sales and marketing activities of our Can-Am/Sea-Doo/Ski-Doo/Evinrude brands in North America as we continue to take appropriate measures to meet our financial commitments and remain well-positioned for a recovery in the powersports and marine businesses."

Yves Leduc was named vice president and general manager of the North American division for BRP and will oversee all the brands for North America. He was most recently vice president and general manager for the company's Can-Am/After Sales Operations division.

Chris Dawson remains vice president and general manager for the International division.

Scott Weber was named vice president of sales, marketing and after-sales service for Evinrude. He was formally director of North American sales for Sea-Doo/Ski-Doo/Evinrude.
