Mercury Marine Names New President


Following the departure of John Pfeifer, Mercury Marine has named Christopher Drees as its new president. Drees was formerly president of Mercury’s marine parts and accessories division. 

“Assuming the Mercury presidency is a natural progression for Chris,” Brunswick CEO David M. Foulkes said in a statement. “He has spent more than 20 years with the company, distinguishing himself in a number of varied assignments and making a series of planned career moves to hone his skills and experience in preparation for this well-deserved role.”

Drees joined Mercury in 1998 and has held a variety of roles, including general manager of Mercury propeller business and vice president of Mercury’s global operations.
