Nautique Boat Co. promoted two people in a reorganization of its executive team.

Bill Yeargin, president and CEO of Nautique’s parent company Correct Craft, will continue as CEO of Nautique Boats, but will relinquish day-to-day operations of the brand.

Greg Meloon will become president of Nautique and will be responsible for sales, marketing and product development. Meloon, a great-grandson of the company’s founder, has many years of experience at Nautique, beginning his career as a sales representative.

For eight years, Meloon has served in Orlando, Fla., on the company’s executive team, with responsibility for product development and marketing.

Angela Pilkington will become chief operating officer at Nautique. Her responsibilities will include production, materials, quality, accounting and administrative functions. Pilkington has been with Nautique for more than 30 years and most recently was Correct Craft’s vice president of administration.

As CEO of Correct Craft, Yeargin will continue to have strategic and executive involvement with Nautique, as well as Correct Craft’s other subsidiaries, which include Bass Cat, Yar-Craft, Pleasurecraft Marine and Aktion Parks. The leaders of each of these companies will report directly to Yeargin.

“I am thrilled to promote both Angela and Greg to these new positions; I cannot think of two people more deserving and I could not be happier for them,” Yeargin said in a statement. “These changes will allow me to work not only with our Nautique team, but also gives me more time to work with our teams at Correct Craft, Pleasurecraft Marine, Bass Cat, Yar-Craft and Aktion Parks while also continuing to lead Correct Craft’s merger-and-acquisition efforts.”
