Changing Places

The American Boat and Yacht Council promoted John Adey to vice president of its technical division.

Adey has served more than seven years as the standards organization's technical division director.

"I promoted John to this position, quite candidly, because he has earned it through mastering a steep learning curve, hard work and demonstrated professional commitment to ABYC, our industry and to the boating public," ABYC president Skip Burdon said in a statement.

"He is the face of ABYC standards around the world and he has garnered and enjoys immense respect of the industry and federal and state governments' most knowledgeable technical experts," he added.
