Naval architect Kevin Mitchell rejoined Michigan Wheel Marine as sales engineer.
Mitchell, with 28 years in the industry focused on marine propellers - including design, application, manufacture and sales - enhances the existing team of sales and engineering, the company said.
He will be based out of the company's Grand Rapids, Mich., headquarters.
"Michigan Wheel Marine is positioning itself for a marine industry recovery, with intent to expand on its products," vice president of sales Marty Ronis said in a statement. "In that effort, it is critical that we have the right team in place to appreciate opportunity. Kevin Mitchell bringing his expertise back to our organization is a strong step in building the right team."
