Press Release –
Polaris Industries Inc. announced the appointment of Scott Swenson as General Manager, Snow Division, effective immediately.
Swenson joined Polaris in 1998 to lead the company’s financial service business through Polaris Acceptance. Swenson also was responsible for the Treasury function and building the Medina facility.
After successfully building the financial services business and delivering on several other key projects and initiatives, Swenson was promoted to General Manager, Parts, Garments and Accessories (PG&A) in May 2001. Under Swenson’s guidance, the PG&A business has grown more than 30 percent – from $210 million to $275 million – in the last five years. Swenson will continue to run the PG&A business until a successor is named.
“Scott Swenson has done a masterful job in building our PG&A business the last five years, and we feel he will be the right person to lead the rebound in our Snow business,” said Bennett Morgan, president and chief operating officer. “Scott has a proven track record as a General Manager with Polaris, and we have complete faith in his ability to provide the leadership and focus required to get our Snow business back to a position of dominance.”
Eric Lindquist, the former General Manager, Snow Division, will be leaving Polaris in the near future to pursue other interests.
