JRL Ventures/Marine Concepts said Mac Spencer is retiring as CFO.

"Mac has served with distinction as Marine Concepts' CFO for the past 15 years, contributing significantly to Marine Concepts' success during this time and helping to secure that we delivered strong financial performance,” Marine Concepts president Matt Chambers said in a statement.

“Mac has demonstrated all of the qualities that make our company so special: dedication to our mission and commitment to doing what is right. I am extremely grateful to Mac for his service to Marine Concepts and for helping to position the company so well for the future."

"It has been a pleasure to have worked with and help build the great team at Marine Concepts,” Spencer said. “I am proud of what we have all accomplished and feel that the company is on the path to even further growth and prosperity. Coming from 28 employees a few year ago to the current 250 employees, we can all be proud of what we have done."

Although Spencer has been with Marine Concepts for 15 years, he has been in the marine industry much longer. He was controller at Crestliner Boats; group controller at Harley-Davidson Motor Co.; senior vice president of finance and administration at Wellcraft Marine; and CFO at American Marine Holdings, the parent company of Donzi and Pro-Line Boats.

Spencer and his wife, Donna, plan to travel to Scotland and Ireland in search of the family castle and spend time with their six grandchildren in Sarasota, Fla.
