"Alex brings exceptional expertise and experience to the CTO role through her impressive 30 years of experience in developing and launching advanced vehicle technology across several industries. Her capabilities are squarely aligned with our ACES strategy and our objective of delivering smart products within smart experiences," said Dave Foulkes, Brunswick Corporation CEO. "She joins our extraordinary leadership team as we continue to advance our exciting Next Wave strategy."

"I am thrilled to join Brunswick at such an exciting time in the Company's history," said Cattelan. "Brunswick has made incredible strides not just in advancing technology but in transforming itself and advancing its capabilities to deliver exceptional boating experiences to existing and new boaters. I look forward to partnering with the talented Brunswick leadership team to build on this momentum."

Cattelan is on the Board of Directors for BraunAbility, whose mission is committed to changing lives for people with physical disabilities through innovative mobility solutions that provide independence and ease-of-use. Cattelan received a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering and a master's degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Toronto.
