NMEA names new president

The board of the National Marine Electronics Association promoted Mark Reedenauer to president and executive director of the international standards writing and marine industry organization.

He will be responsible for all operations and activities of NMEA, including playing a principal role in creating strategies for continued growth and standards development.

In his previous position as managing director, Reedenauer managed the NMEA's day-to-day operations and served as primary liaison with the membership and marine industry.

Prior to that, he served as NMEA documentation specialist, where he oversaw the Marine Electronics Installer programs and all NMEA technical standards, including NMEA 0183, NMEA 2000 and the recently released 2014 edition of NMEA 0400 Version 4.00.

Reedenauer joined the NMEA in 2011 with 12 years of experience in the marine industry, including several years at Airmar as marketing manager and at Northstar as a technical sales and support specialist.

"In January last year I was elected chairman," Johnny Lindstrom said in a statement. "At the time we were without a president, so those responsibilities fell to me. I was grateful for the dedicated staff I had the opportunity to work with. I was impressed with how Mark handled the various tasks given him and the insight he exhibited in our many conversations. I encouraged him to throw his hat into the ring for consideration. I'm very pleased the NMEA board search committee, while receiving a number of impressive resumes, gave the nod to Mark. I believe he will serve with distinction and guide the organization with a steady hand."
