Mercury Racing has named Stuart Halley, a longtime Mercury Marine employ/group leader, as its new general manager. The news was announced in a press release from the Fond du Lac, Wis., high-performance marine engine and accessories.
Stuart Halley is Mercury Racing’s general manager.
A 25-year marine industry veteran, Halley worked as Mercury Marine’s PD&E Director (Program Management & Product Planning) since 2011, Halley officially replaces Erik Christiansen who left the company in March. (Mercury Marine’s Steve Miller held the interim position.) During that time, Halley and his team “were integral to the success of many of Mercury’s outboard platforms including the 150hp FourStroke, the 75-115hp FourStroke and the new 3.4L V-6 platform,” according to the release.
“Stuart has held many leadership positions since coming to Mercury in 1993,” said John Pfeifer, the president of Mercury Marine, in the release. “His engineering background and proven success will be integral as we continue to grow the Mercury Racing brand around the world.”
Prior to working at Mercury, Halley was employed at General Dynamics and Lockheed in Ft. Worth, Texas and was involved with the F-16 National Aero-Space Plane (X-30) and F-22 aircraft programs. He holds a bachelor of science degree in aerospace engineering from Iowa State University.
