Mark Schwabero, chairman and CEO of Brunswick Corp, is to deliver the keynote speech during the annual Breakfast Briefing at this year’s METSTRADE Show in Amsterdam.

Schwabero’s presentation, entitled 'Global Marine Trends and Opportunities', will explore the connections between the leisure marine sector and other areas of industrial manufacturing – including how leisure marine compares with other industries.

Leveraging on his unique perspective as an industry leader, he will provide insights into the challenges that the marine sector is facing and the best ways to overcome them.

After the Breakfast Briefing, Schwabero will give an interview on the InnovationLAB Stage and meet with young professionals from the METSTRADE Young Professionals Club.

Schwabero started his career in the automotive equipment sector, working for renowned companies such as Navistar International, Bosch Braking Systems North America, Pilkington Libbey-Owens-Ford and Hendrickson International. He became president of Mercury Marine in 2008, and moved to Brunswick Corp as president and COO in 2014. He became chair and CEO at the same company in 2016.

The METSTRADE Show is the world’s largest trade exhibition of equipment, materials and systems for the international leisure marine industry. It is organised by RAI Amsterdam in association with the International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA).
