Indmar Marine has named Tim Maher Chief Operating Officer. He will be responsible for operating units worldwide, as well as the day-to-day operations of the company and manufacturing facility. He will report directly to company president Chuck Rowe.

Maher has spent 10 years at Indmar and has been vice president of operations since 2014. He was instrumental in the company’s completion of International Organization of Standardization 9001:2015 certification for its corporate office and manufacturing facility in Millington, Tenn.

Maher also played a key role in Indmar manufacturing more components in-house to vertically integrate the company and control quality. The company’s acquisition of equipment and technology that has resulted in Indmar expanding into new industry segments have driven growth for the company.

“Over the last decade, Maher has built an impressive track record of strategic, operational accomplishments,” Rowe said in a statement. “He has proven to be a successful leader that has a strong reputation for developing people and inspiring teams. His wealth of experience in the automotive engineering industry and his time as an entrepreneur will continue to be valuable assets as Indmar prepares for accelerated growth.” Rowe added that Maher will help execute Indmar’s 5-year plan.

“Indmar has a rich history as the innovator, a strong brand that customers trust and are local to — and one incredible team that has made it all possible,” Maher said in the statement. “My vision is to continue this tradition, but expand our footprint even further. It’s been incredible to experience Indmar’s growth over the last 10 years — I am honored and appreciate the opportunity to lead our team as we prepare for the next 10 years of sustainable growth.”

Before joining Indmar, Maher worked in automotive engineering. In 2005, he started T&S Tubular Solutions, which became a supplier to Indmar. In 2009, Rowe acquired the company and made Maher an offer to become manufacturing manager. Soon after, Maher was promoted to vice president of operations.
