"We think it's very important to recognize dealers who not only accomplish exceptional sales, but also engage deeply with the company and share our core values," said Marquis-Larson Boat Group president and CEO Rob Parmentier in a statement. "The success of the Marquis-Larson brands wouldn't be possible without our loyal and dedicated dealer partners, and we thank them for their vital contributions."
