Jim Krueger has stepped down after 46 years in marine industry

Jim Krueger was recently honored by Regal Boats with a special award presentation marking his 46 years of continuous service in the marine industry.

Krueger recently retired from his position as Regal’s Midwest/Central US regional sales manager.

He began his career in engineering and sales with Cruisers Inc in 1972. Over nearly five decades, he served in similar roles with Sea Ray, Bertram Yachts, Shamrock Boats and Luhrs Marine Group.

“Each manufacturer I represented produced boats for very different buyer segments of the industry, from outboard and I/O runabouts, to big game fishing tournament and cruising yachts, from recreational trawlers to top-of-the-line sport boats and sport yachts,” said Krueger.

“I consider myself extremely fortunate to have enjoyed and experienced these opportunities, and especially to have met and worked with truly the nicest and most talented marine industry colleagues and retail customers you could ever have hoped to meet. It’s been a great career and I very much appreciate the kind words and the well wishes from Regal, as well as from many colleagues I’ve worked with throughout the industry.”

An experienced and accomplished photographer, Krueger plans to launch a new freelance career shooting boats, motorsports, landscapes and lifestyle portraiture.
