MUSKEGON, MI -- Brunswick Bowling Products chief executive Brent Perrier announced that he will retire after 37 years of service to the company and the bowling industry. Brunswick has named Corey Dykstra, who is now chief financial officer, to succeed him. The succession will be effective July 25.
"It has been a great run at Brunswick, and I'm really proud to be leaving the company in the best financial position, and with the highest-quality product line we've enjoyed in a long time," Perrier said. "I'm happy the current management team will remain in place."
Perrier will transition into the position of executive advisor to the board and chief executive over the next two months. Dykstra, who now is vice-president of consumer and aftermarket products, as well as CFO, has been with Brunswick since 2004.
Brunswick reported that Dykstra has been instrumental in growing the consumer product business, most recently with the introduction of the shoe and bag product lines. He served as president of the Billiard and Bowling International Association in 2016.
