Regal Marine has promoted two veteran members of its team. Paul Kuck was named vice president of product development and manufacturing. He has been with the company since 2008. His prior roles included marketing manager, director of product development and vice president of marketing and product development. He is part of Regal’s executive team and a member of the family that founded the company.

“Paul has played a vital role in our growth and the shift in product development over the last several years,” Duane Kuck, president and CEO of Regal, said in a statement. “As a result of his influence, Regal has gained a consistent 7.5 percent market share growth in the last three years. We see his transition into this new role as an objective to unify our manufacturing and product development teams while improving workflow and simplifying the process.”

Regal Marine’s primary graphic designer Jeff Littlefield has been promoted to creative manager and now joins the company’s leadership team as head of the marketing department. Littlefield began his career with Regal in 2012 and has been instrumental in re-branding Regal’s image in marketing, advertising and social media.

“In his new role, Jeff will oversee the day-to-day operations of the marketing department and continue to be a key player in the acceleration of the Regal brand,” Jacob Kuck, Regal’s north American sales manager, said in a statement. “Our marketing team has won numerous awards and has positioned Regal as one of the preeminent brands in the marine industry.”
