Indmar Marine Engines has added a “pioneering marine executive” to the team, naming Mark Huddleston as director of sales and applications.

“Huddleston brings a remarkable breadth of experience and industry knowledge,” said Indmar Marine Engines president Chuck Rowe in a statement. “His vast industry knowledge, expertise with our products, coupled with an acute understanding of the ever evolving marine industry, made him the ideal candidate to effectively lead our sales and applications efforts. Mark has the strategic vision and inspirational leadership to usher in our next phase of growth.”

Huddleston joined Indmar as a consultant in 2017 and as he became the liaison with many of Indmar’s strongest partners, the step into the sales role was a natural progression, according to the company.

Huddleston comes to Indmar with over 40 years of experience in the marine industry. As a teenager, he was inducted into the family dealership.

Before joining Indmar, Huddleston spent several years as a production engineering manager at one of the nation’s oldest boat companies and was applications engineer and director of a major engine manufacturer.
