The National Marine Manufacturers Association said two new directors were appointed to NMMA boards last month at the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition & Conference.

The NMMA said Tracy Crocker, senior vice president and general manager of Evinrude, a division of BRP, was appointed to the NMMA Board of Directors and the board of the Engine Manufacturers Division.

Crocker oversees Evinrude’s global propulsion businesses. He served as president of Arctic Cat’s off-road vehicle businesses from 2012-17 and is a 30-year veteran of consumer product companies, including Procter & Gamble, Nabisco and PepsiCo.

Terry McNew, president and CEO of MasterCraft Boat Co., was appointed to the board of the Boat Manufacturers Division. McNew is a 29-year marine industry executive, and prior to joining MasterCraft in 2012 he was executive vice president of product development and engineering, manufacturing and quality for the Recreational Boat Group at Brunswick.

He also served as president and CEO of Correct Craft from 2004-06.
