Godfrey Marine names vice president
Godfrey Marine, manufacturer of Godfrey pontoon boats and Hurricane deck boats, has promoted Doug Adrian to the role of vice president and general manager for Godfrey and Hurricane.
Adrian was serving in his new role on an interim basis prior to taking it over officially and has been with Godfrey Marine since early 2020, when he led operations and managed supply chain issues during unprecedented pandemic-related challenges. He successfully helped guide operations into the newly expanded production capacity and quality systems currently in place.
Before joining Godfrey Marine, Adrian accrued 25 years of experience in similar roles with consistently progressing levels of responsibility, 15 years of which were within the marine industry, focusing on sectors including engines, electronics and boat manufacturing.
“Doug has been instrumental to our growth and development with his successful tackling of industry-wide challenges, such as supply chain shortages,” says Ben Duke, president of Marine, Polaris. “He’s the perfect choice to step into larger responsibilities and continue helping to shepherd our brands forward into the future.”
“Working with Godfrey Marine has been a pleasure and a privilege,” says Adrian. “After already serving in this role and in others on a management level, I can confidently say that I’m excited to keep us looking ahead and connecting more customers with the water.”
Godfrey Marine – a division of Polaris – designs, engineers, manufactures and markets pontoon, deck and sport boats.
