Brunswick Commercial and Government Products has named Erik Bon Fleur as its new general manager.

“Erik brings to the team valuable experience in manufacturing processes and project management,” Boston Whaler group president Nick Stickler said in a statement. “His skills and knowledge will better position BCGP to meet the ever evolving demands of the commercial and government marine industry.”

Prior to joining BCGP, Bon Fleur was in other roles at the parent Brunswick Corp., including continuous improvement manager for Boston Whaler and, most recently, director of operations for Thunder Jet, an aluminum boat builder in Washington state.

Bon Fleur has been with Brunswick since 2012. He joined the company as a process engineer at Hatteras Yachts, which Brunswick sold in 2013.

Bon Fleur has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Central Florida and a master’s degree in industrial engineering, as well as an MBA from the University of Florida’s Warrington College of Business Administration.
