“Lauren, Hélène and Becky are standout leaders within the Brunswick organization, and I would like to congratulate them and thank Boating Industry Magazine for recognizing their accomplishments, said Dave Foulkes, Brunswick Chief Executive Officer. “At Brunswick, we are committed to fostering diversity and inclusion within our company and having three of our female leaders honored for their commitment to defining the marine industry is another great step in advancing our mission.”
“Our wonderful industry is full of so many strong female leaders, it’s truly an honor to highlight the hard work of some of these women through Boating Industry’s Women Making Waves program. Seeing a multitude of strong women lead across Brunswick’s various brands serves as a great example to women around the world that the boating industry is a great place to be and we’re proud to honor them,” Adam Quandt, Managing Editor, Boating Industry.
