Changing Places

Ilmor Marine named Edwin Baumgartner director of operations at its Mooresville, N.C., headquarters. He replaces Ronald Brown, who left the company in early February.

“This restructure will help strengthen the communications and operations links between Ilmor Marine and its parent company, which is critical at the company’s early stage of growth,” Ilmor Engineering president Paul Ray said in a statement. “We would like to thank Ron for everything he has done for Ilmor Marine over the last four years. He has been a dedicated member of our organization, played a critical role in the launch of our manufacturing facility and led the business with enthusiasm and integrity.”

Baumgartner joins Ilmor after 20 years of operations and supply chain management at Honda, including three years of production management at Honda Performance Development.

Ilmor Marine is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ilmor Engineering.
