Robyn Boerstling Joins NMMA to lead government relations

The National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), a trade association representing boat, marine engine and accessory manufacturers in North America, has hired Robyn Boerstling (pictured above) as senior vice president of government relations.

As chief advocate, Boerstling will oversee the Association’s advocacy efforts at the federal, state, and international levels of government on behalf of the $230bn US recreational boating industry, reporting to Frank Hugelmeyer, NMMA president. She officially joins the organisation on 1 December and is based in NMMA’s new Washington, D.C. headquarters.

“We are thrilled to welcome Robyn to the NMMA team and to the recreational boating industry. She brings extensive association experience and an impressive track record of strategically navigating challenging public policy on behalf of leading manufacturers,” says Hugelmeyer. “She is a strong and highly collaborative leader who will nurture our team and ensure the growth and success of recreational boating.”

Boerstling was previously vice president for the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), the nation’s largest industrial trade association.

“I’m honoured and excited to join NMMA and strengthen the association’s presence in Washington D.C.,” Boerstling says. “The valuable lessons learned while working within a state house, federal agency and at America’s premiere manufacturing association will be an asset to NMMA and its members.

“Growing up sailing and boating on the Long Island Sound with my family, and now watching my children enjoy a variety of watersport inspires me to ensure a long and vibrant future is secured for the recreational boating industry.”

Prior to her tenure at NAM, Boerstling held multiple staff-level positions at the US Department of Transportation.
