Gruhn brings more than 15 years of industry experience to the Amtech board, the majority of which was spent at Boating Industry magazine and its numerous ancillary products. He was named president of the MRAA last year.

“We are very honored to have Matt serve on our board and I look forward to working with him in the coming years,” Amtech president Joe De Marco said in a statement. “There are numerous synergies between MRAA and Amtech, and Matt and I both believe that Amtech’s technical training provides the necessary core skills that technicians need in order to meet today’s advancing technology and also serves as a perfect prerequisite to manufacturer product-specific training.”

“The relationship between the success of individual technicians and the individual dealerships is very closely connected, and we at the MRAA are honored to play a part in guiding the direction and opportunities that Amtech provides both of these constituents,” Gruhn added.
