Publish date:

BRP today announced that it has reorganized leadership of its Powersports Group. That group includes Sea-Doo personal watercraft and Rotax engines as well as BRP’s Ski-Doo and Can-Am lines. It was formed in February 2018.

A BRP statement said that the group will now be co-led by Sandy Scullion as Senior Vice-President, Global Retail & Services and Thomas Uhr as Senior Vice-President, Product Engineering and Manufacturing Operations. BRP said that former Powersports Group President Bertrand Thiébaut has left the company to pursue other career opportunities.

José Boisjoli, president and CEO, said in the statement that the creation of the Powersports Group has been an “important step” in BRP’s growth strategy. “With Sandy and Thomas heading this Group, we intend to continue our leading position in the powersports industry by focusing on the areas where we have the technical expertise, sector know-how and new and transformative ideas on how to push the industry forward,” he said in the statement.

Uhr and Scullion are long-time BRP executives. They will both report to Boisjoli.

“This era is perhaps the most exciting one yet,” said Boisjoli. “We thank our people around the world for their hard work and dedication for positioning us for growth.”
