Iowa-based marine distributor Lorenz and Jones, continuing to evolve since its merger with LVP 2-1/2 years ago, hired Kevin Fletcher as president.

He succeeds Ray Lorenz and comes from Attwood Corp., where he was vice president of sales and marketing. Fletcher also has experience at Michigan Wheel.

“Kevin is a great addition to our management team, bringing a new perspective and insight on both the power sports and marine business,” Lorenz and Jones chairman Chip Besse said in a statement.

“As my career in the marine business transitions toward eventual retirement, It is in the best interest of the company to bring in a new president,” Lorenz said. “This is being done before I leave to make a smooth transition to the future. Kevin is a great fit for us and will bring a wealth of experience to our team. I am excited to have Kevin onboard and look forward to seeing Lorenz and Jones continue to grow and be taken to the next level.”

Lorenz will continue as part of the management team and lead the purchasing team for the next several years.
