The National Marine Manufacturers Association this morning announced that it appointed Jeff Wasil director of environment, health and safety compliance.
Wasil’s industry experience includes a stint at Bombardier Recreational Products, where he published technical papers on emissions and alternative fuels. Additionally, he has testified before the U.S. Congressional Committee on Science, Space and Technology regarding biofuels, and published more than 100 articles.
“[He] brings extensive technical experience to this role to harmonize emissions standards and manage the transition to low-carbon technologies and marine electrification,” Tillie Fowler, senior vice president of government relations and regulatory affairs, said in a statement. “Jeff is passionate about boating and has shared his experiences with global regulatory agencies to minimize disruption and help move our industry forward.”
NMMA said Wasil will transition to his new position starting Aug. 15 and will work with Fowler and John McKnight, NMMA senior vice president of environmental health and safety. He is based in Illinois.
