Tom Schuessler has been named president of Mercury’s Power Products division. Brunswick Corp. acquired Power Products in August 2018 as the largest parts and accessories acquisition in its history.

Schuessler has worked for Brunswick Corporation since 1984, most recently as president of Mercury Marine’s Land ‘N’ Sea business. Land ‘N’ Sea has grown into the largest marine parts and accessories wholesale distributor in the United States. Schuessler also held leadership positions in Mercury’s Parts & Accessories business, including director of distribution at Mercury Marine as well as director of parts & accessories logistics at Mercury.

“Power Products and its brands are known around the world and I’m thrilled to lead this great company,” said Schuessler in a statement. “Parts and accessories is a major part of Brunswick’s success and Power Products is a big driver of that growth.”

“Tom’s leadership and proven record of success at Land ‘N’ Sea provides Power Products the stability and guidance it needs to continue its growth in the marketplace and within Brunswick Corporation,” said Chris Drees, Mercury Marine president in the statement.

Mike Conners, vice president of national sales at Land ‘N’ Sea has been named president of that company. He has held leadership roles at Land ‘N’ Sea since 1989.

“Mike’s promotion is part of our succession plan at Land ‘N’ Sea and he will continue to guide the company as the leading distributor in the marine industry,” said Drees. “Mike’s vast experience at the company, including leadership positions in supply chain, operations, sales and business development gives the business a consistent voice to lead the company into the future.”
