The Southern California Marine Association recently elected Richard Tressler as its president for 2011-12.

Tressler is vice president of Essex Credit Corp. and has served on numerous SCMA committees.

“Richard’s role at Essex Credit Corp. and his years of volunteering with SCMA give him a great understanding of what is required for our dealers and manufacturers to secure financing and sell product in the current economic climate,” executive director Dave Geoffroy said in a statement. “I’m truly excited to have someone of Richard’s character and experience helping SCMA tackle the industry’s challenges head-on during his term.”

Others elected to serve as SCMA officers include vice president Renee Ascencio of Newport Boats; secretary Dan Klaas of Hipp Marine; treasurer Jim Hendricks, West Coast editor of Bonnier Marine Group; and past president Bruce Brown of Bruce Brown and Associates.
