Regulator Marine president Joan Maxwell said Friday that the company appointed Keith Stevens as vice president of operations.

Stevens previously held the post from 2006 through 2012 and the company said he is credited with developing its sales, inventory and operations model to improve competitiveness and implementing lean principles that helped the company weather the Great Recession and emerge much stronger.

For the last three years Stevens managed thousands of people and hundreds of processes at Amazon.com’s Charleston, Tenn., fulfillment center.

“We are thrilled to welcome Keith back to the Regulator family,” Maxwell said in a statement. “Keith’s drive for continuous improvement in product development and actual construction will ensure that Regulator remains a leader in the center console sportfishing segment for many years to come.”
