Brunswick Corp. on Monday announced that Alexander Marchetti has been named senior director – investor relations and will be responsible for Brunswick’s global investor relations efforts.

Marchetti, currently assistant corporate controller, will begin transitioning into his new role immediately, reporting to Ryan Gwillim, vice president – finance and treasurer, who will remain involved in Brunswick’s IR program.

“Al has been a key member of our finance team at Brunswick, at both the operational and corporate levels,” Gwillim said. “His knowledge of our organization, our strategy and his familiarity with the Company’s regulatory compliance and financial reporting processes will serve Al well in his new role working with our shareholders and the investment community.”

“Today’s announcement supports our transition to a focused marine company and demonstrates the wealth of talent and bench strength we have throughout the Brunswick organization,” said Brunswick CFO William Metzger.  “Al’s appointment will continue to strengthen our robust investor relations program, enabling us to capitalize on the work Ryan and the management team have done to expand our relations with our investor base.”

Marchetti joined the company in 2006 as director and controller of Life Fitness, a division of Brunswick. In July 2015, he joined Brunswick’s corporate finance group as assistant corporate controller, where among other duties, he was responsible for all quarterly financial reporting to support the earnings release and conference call materials as well as the preparation of SEC financial filings.
