Brunswick announced in a statement that it named Marty Bass president of the Americas for its Advanced Systems Group. Bass replaces Tom Schuessler, who will retire at the end of the year.

Bass joined Brunswick’s Mercury Marine division 15 years ago and has worked in leadership roles that include vice president of global category management and president of Mercury Marine in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

“Marty has demonstrated the ability to deliver exceptional business results while building and leading high performing teams, and I am excited for him to lead our Americas division,” ASG president Brett Dibkey said in the statement. “Marty and Tom will work closely together through the remainder of the year to ensure a seamless transition.”

Prior to joining Brunswick, Bass was a Navy officer who worked on the design of submarine propulsion systems.

“I am thrilled to be joining the ASG team as we execute on Brunswick’s ACES strategy, aligning our industry-leading brands in key product segments,” Bass said. “With the addition of Navico, SemahTronix and RELiON … we have just begun to unlock the opportunities that will continue to enhance the consumer experience.”
