Longtime Mercury Marine employee takes new job

Mercury Marine veteran Tom Mielke is leaving to pursue a job with a Wisconsin-based powersports company outside the marine industry.

Mielke worked for Mercury from 1983 until 2008 before working for a powersports company near Detroit. He rejoined Mercury in 2012. Many of his years at Mercury, including the last year and a half, were spent in the marketing department.

“Tom contributed greatly to Mercury achievements during both tours with this company,” Mercury marketing vice president Ben Duke said in a statement. “We wish him the best of luck in his new career.”
