The Larson Boat Group added Gary Zimmer as vice president of product development and engineering to the executive team of the Little Falls, Minn.-based company.

Prior to joining Larson, Zimmer worked for Brunswick Corp. at Sea Ray Boats, serving in multiple capacities.

He was most recently vice president of operations at Sea Ray, although he also held leadership positions in product development and engineering quality, customer service and manufacturing technology at the company.

"Gary's leadership [and] process-driven methodology, along with his engineering and marine knowledge, are key assets we needed in Little Falls to add to the executive leadership team at LBG,” Larson president and CEO Rob Parmentier said in a statement. “I know Gary will be a welcomed addition to the organization and my leadership team and be instrumental in our continued turnaround of this storied company and collection of great brands.”

“The opportunity to be part of the Larson Boat Group team and lead the product development and engineering team is exciting," Zimmer said. "To be part of this team, this company at this time, with all of their forward momentum, is a rare and unique opportunity [and] challenge that I cannot wait to get started — they need to hold me back.”
