Matthew Vetzner was promoted to vice president of marketing at the recent Marquis-Larson Group dealer meeting in Florida.

Vetzner had been director of marketing.

"Since joining me in January 2014, Matthew has single-handedly overhauled the marketing at both organizations to be one of class, professionalism and results," Marquis-Larson Group president Rob Parmentier said in a statement.

"Matthew works tirelessly to ensure our brands are understood and well looked after in the market and our dealer partners have the tools, materials and resources they need to communicate the product and brand in their local market."

Vetzner said he was “honored and humbled” by the promotion.

"The title is recognition for my hard work, and also that of my mentors who taught me how to be successful, think creatively, challenge status quo, never be satisfied and come to work every day to be the best and win,” he said. “I also truly appreciate working with my long-term vendor partners day in and day out that help to make me look good."
