Volvo Penta of the Americas president Clint Moore will retire Sept. 1.

Moore, 64, has more than 35 years of experience in the marine industry, including propulsion, boatbuilding and retail sales, and has been with Volvo Penta since 1996.

“Although I love being head of VPA, the time had come for me to focus on other areas and opportunities,” Moore said in a statement. “I am proud of the team I’ve built and leave behind — they are strong, passionate leaders. I am also especially pleased with the strong, productive relationships the team has developed with our customers and partners. I leave knowing that our company is a great industry leader with a bright future.”

The process of finding Moore´s successor has begun and is expected to be completed during the third quarter, the company said.

"Clint Moore's dedicated and visionary leadership has gained enormous respect within the global boating industry, and I want to thank Clint for his outstanding achievements during his service for Volvo Penta and I wish him well as he prepares for retirement,” AB Volvo Penta president Björn Ingemanson said in a statement.

Volvo Penta has decided to merge its North American, Latin American and South American operations into the newly formed Region America, with sales and aftermarket responsibility. The change is effective Sept. 1 and is being made to harmonize Volvo Penta’s structure with a major reorganization last year of the Volvo Group´s global structure.

Moore´s successor will take on responsibility for the newly consolidated region and segment responsibility for Volvo Penta´s marine gasoline engines.
