Brunswick Corp. said it named Danielle Brown, 46, as vice president and chief information officer.

The appointment is effective Nov. 14. Brown succeeds Michael Schulz, who is retiring from Brunswick, and will report to CEO Mark Schwabero.

Brown joins Brunswick from DuPont, where she most recently led global IT transformation in preparation for the merger of DuPont and Dow Chemical.

During her 16-year career with the chemical and agricultural industry leader, Brown, a certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, has held a number of positions of increasing responsibility within information technology, serving in operations and corporate assignments in the United States and Asia.

As chief information officer for DuPont's $3 billion crop protection business, Brown supported growth-related strategies focused on customer outreach in new and emerging markets, Brunswick said.

At Brunswick, Brown will have responsibility for the company's information technology services, including IT structure and planning, emerging technologies, service delivery and execution, as well as IT governance and compliance across Brunswick's functions and global operations.

"We are extremely pleased to have Danielle join our management team at Brunswick," Schwabero said in a statement. "We look forward to leveraging her industry experience and knowledge as Brunswick continues to evolve and support our business strategy and customer requirements. In addition, her business insights and experience in analytics and IT talent development will make her a strong addition to the organization.

"Moving forward, Danielle will be building upon the fine work of Mike Schulz, who has led the company's efforts in this area for the past 14 years," Schwabero added. "We wish Mike the best on his well-deserved retirement."

Brown has a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, as well as a master’s degree in information systems, and an MBA from Pennsylvania State University and Drexel University, respectively.
