Following an 18-year career with John Deere, Oenick joins Brunswick where he most recently directed a Powertrain Research Center at the University of Wisconsin focused on the production of hybrid diesel engines by introducing 48- and 700-Volt motor generator units and electrified air intake systems. Prior roles included Power Electronics Director, power inverters production, and Vehicle Electrification Global Manager designing high customer value applications for Agriculture and construction vehicles electrical transmission systems.
Oenick’s journey began in the auto industry where he retained a series of massive accountable roles within General Motors and Chrysler Corporations centered on the development of powertrain, vehicle integration, and optimization of engine control systems for emissions, efficiency or fuel-efficiency. He gained extensive skills in the Marine and Leisure Products Industry at Bombardier after a decade in the auto industry as the Director of Powertrain Production for Sea-Doo Watercraft and Jet Boats.

The system offers a simple and clever way for boaters to embrace all the boat’s features for a longer, smoother, and more eco-friendly day on the water. Presently active on the Sea Ray SLX-R 400e, Fathom has been selected for the CES Breakthrough Award for 2021. The product will soon be used in additional models of boats and propulsion systems.
