CRYSTAL, Minn. – Crystal-Pierz Marine has named Luke Kujawa as president and COO for the dealership, the company said in a statement Tuesday. As a key member of Crystal-Pierz Marine’s executive leadership team, Kujawa’s responsibilities include refining the company business plan and overseeing the direction of operations for its 11 Midwest locations and 225 employees.
“We are continuing the family-oriented legacy that my parents have built, yet are committed to strengthening the company with some changes that will help pace our steady growth, and consequent market presence, by bringing in sound business practices,” Kujawa said. “This is a natural progression that is steering us on the path we’ve been heading toward over the past few years.”
