Regal Marine Industries president Duane Kuck announced yesterday the promotion of Paul Kuck to the new position of vice president of product development & marketing with global responsibilities.

If the name sounds familiar, it’s because Kuck is the grandson and namesake of company founder Paul Kuck. The new appointee is also the oldest son of Duane and Cindy Kuck and has worked at Regal for the past 10 years. Prior to his new position, Paul Kuck was part of many company initiatives involving information technology, marketing and engineering.

“Paul is very passionate about Regal and the boating business and has certainly paid his dues on the job,” said Duane Kuck in a statement. “He has excelled in his overall responsibilities and brings an exceptional level of commitment to elevating the boating experience for our customers through the design and development of world-class products. His tireless energy and focus on both product development and marketing will ensure critical strategic continuity as we continue to move forward and advance our long-term corporate mission.”
