Top Executive Changes Announced By Marco
Marco Seattle has named Bob McMahon to the position of vice president and general manager of its shipyard division. The announcement was made recently by Marco p r e s i d e n t Peter G.

Mr. McMahon is a nine-year veteran with the Seattle shipbuilder, fishing systems, and industrial products manufacturer, where he was most recently shipyard shipyard production manager. Mr.
McMahon spent six years in the U.S. Navy's nuclear submarine fleet prior to joining Marco in 1972.
Mr. Schmidt also announced that Robert F. Allen, Marco's executive vice president, has been assigned to San Diego as the executive vice president and general manager of Campbell Industries. Acquired by Marco in 1979, Campbell is one of the world's leading builders of tuna superseiners. The company operates a 35-acre shipyard with approximately 800 employees.
Mr. Allen has held many positions in his 23 years with Marco, most recently as vice president in charge of the company's shipyard and pollution control division. Along with Mr. Allen's relocation, Mr. Schmidt announced that Marco vice president D. William Lerch has been named manager of the pollution control division, the world's leading builder of oilskimming vessels. Mr. Lerch has held a variety of positions over a 22-year span in engineering and pollution control with Marco. These have included the posts of chief engineer and general manager of a company-operated shipyard in Chile.
