Mercury Marine promoted Randy Caruana to vice president of North and Central America, as well as Asia Pacific.

Caruana was previously vice president of sales and marketing for North America and he is adding Central America and Asia Pacific to his responsibilities.

Kevin Grodzki, who was president of global sales and marketing, is now the vice president of communications and public affairs for Brunswick Corp.

“Randy is well respected in the marine industry and his leadership has been integral to our recent success and we will rely on his leadership as we continue to grow in the future,” Mercury Marine president John Pfeifer said in a statement. “Mercury Marine has benefited greatly from Kevin’s leadership since he joined the company in 2005 and we look forward to working with him in his new role at Brunswick Corp.”

Caruana has been with Mercury Marine for 12 years. In his new role, he will oversee his current marketing and sales team in North America, as well as Will Sangster, general manager of Australia, New Zealand and Pacific, and Bill McEathron, general manager of Asia.

“I look forward to the opportunity to lead the sales and marketing teams in Central America and Asia Pacific as we put into place a plan for growth in 2015 and beyond,” Caruana said. “Our brand remains strong in North America, and I look forward to continuing to strengthening that brand on a global level.”
