Mr. Shock, who joined MTU in 1989, is now responsible for the company's sales, marketing and advertising.
He previously served as national marine account manager in the company's Seattle office dealing with custom and production yachts and commercial marine accounts for the western U.S.
MTU North America, incorporated in 1978 to provide compact, high-power-density marine diesel engines for pleasure, commercial and military vessels in North America and the Caribbean, is the marketing, sales and service subsidiary of MTU Friedrichshafen.
