With Sandy and Thomas heading this Group, we intend to continue our leading position in the powersports industry by focusing on the areas where we have the technical expertise, sector know-how and new and transformative ideas on how to push the industry forward,” stated José Boisjoli, President and CEO. “We want to thank Bertrand for his presence at an important time for us as we set up the Group model. We wish him the very best in the future.”

Both Uhr and Scullion are long-time BRP executives, highly respected in the fields of manufacturing, operations and engineering, retail sales and marketing respectively. As co-leaders of the Powersports Group, they will both report to Boisjoli. Under their leadership, the Powersports Group of BRP will continue its innovative growth plan with new and exciting projects ahead based on a strong and stable financial foundation and talented, creative people ready to continue the ride into the next chapter of the company’s history. Boisjoli continued: “This era is perhaps the most exciting one yet, and we thank our people around the world for their hard work and dedication.”
