Brunswick Corp. named Steve Langlais president of Sea Ray, succeeding Brad Anderson, “who has chosen to pursue opportunities outside the company.”

Langlais has been serving as president of Fort Wayne operations for Brunswick and will continue to report to Brunswick Boat Group president Huw Bower.

The appointment is effective immediately.

Langlais joined Brunswick in 2016 as president of Princecraft Boats. He assumed his current responsibilities at Fort Wayne, a production center for pontoon brands including Harris, in 2018.

“Steve is an excellent fit for Sea Ray,” Bower said in a statement. “He has a very impressive track record of accomplishment, building and growing premium brands, and fostering strong distribution relationships. His energy and engaging leadership ensure that Steve will continue to drive the exciting transformation underway at Sea Ray.

“Celebrating its 60th anniversary and with committed investment in technology, design, capacity and talent, Sea Ray is bringing to life a bold vision for the future of this iconic brand,” Bower added.

Brunswick has begun the process to identify Langlais’ successor. In the interim, Jorge Valdes, supply chain vice president, will lead the Fort Wayne operations team, reporting to Bower.
