Custom Marine names Mark Marrese sales engineer.

Custom Marine welcomes Mark Marrese to his new position as sales engineer for CMI.

Marrese is a 21-plus year technical specialist and veteran in the marine industry. Starting at Kiekhaefer Aeromarine as an assembly technician in the late 1980s, Marrese progressed as a service and warranty administrator through the ’90s and ended up working the last nine years as a product support specialist for Mercury Racing.

“We feel his strong work ethic and knowledge of the marine industry makes him another great addition to our company,” said CMI president Joe Zelinski in a statement. “Mark will be an asset to CMI as we continue to expand in our manufacturing capability and grow our product offering.”

Custom Marine is based in Neenah, Wis., and manufactures a high-performance line of stainless steel headers, exhaust and muffler products.
