Marine Concepts/Design Concepts said president Matt Chambers is leaving the company, citing family matters.

Chairman J. Pearson will oversee operations while company executives and senior staff continue to work with customers during the transition.

"It has been a great 10 years with Marine Concepts/Design Concepts,” Chambers said in a statement. “Due to family matters, wishing to live closer to family and taking in my father-in-law, I have made the tough choice to leave the company, effective Oct. 28.”

The company was bought by Leisure Product Holdings LLC in February; Mac Spencer retired as CFO in May.

“The new ownership, who are fully committed to invest in our growth, was the best move for the company in my tenure,” Chambers said. “We have purchased a new CMS 5-Axis CNC Mill, 67 feet by 27 feet by 14 feet and expect to be operational in March of 2017. We have implemented new process improvement methods, along with many other items to ensure we grow, and more importantly improve our ability to take care of our customers. I leave a company that is well run by a great team. I will miss our customers, suppliers, team and families greatly."
