Brunswick names vice president of investor relations

Brunswick Corp. has promoted Ryan M. Gwillim to vice president of investor relations.

Gwillim, 38, who succeeds Phillip Haan, had been Brunswick’s associate general counsel-international. Haan will remain with the company through the end of the month to support an orderly transition.

“Since joining the company in 2011, Ryan has made significant contributions to both Brunswick’s growth and success,” Brunswick senior vice president and chief financial officer William Metzger said in a statement. “He has been heavily involved in numerous efforts to execute our growth strategy, including several of our recent acquisitions. Ryan’s counsel and judgment have been highly valued by both our marine and fitness businesses. His knowledge of our organization and the industries in which we compete, along with his previous involvement in the company’s SEC compliance and financial reporting processes, will serve him well as he now works with our shareholders and the investment community.”

Gwillim joined Brunswick as corporate counsel in 2011 and became assistant general counsel-corporate and securities a year later. He assumed the role of associate general counsel-international in 2015.

A certified public accountant, he received bachelor’s and master’s degrees in accounting and a law degree from the University of Illinois. Before joining Brunswick, Gwillim was an associate in the corporate and securities practice group at Baker & McKenzie in Chicago.
