Polaris Industries’ Scott Swenson has been named General Manager, Snow Division, effective immediately. Eric Lindquist, the former General Manager, Snow Division, will be leaving Polaris to pursue other interests, according to company officials.
Swenson joined Polaris in 1998 to lead the company’s financial service business through Polaris Acceptance, and was responsible for Treasury functions and building the Medina facility. He was promoted to General Manager, Parts, Garments and Accessories (PG&A) in May 2001. Under his guidance, the PG&A business has grown more than 30 percent – from $210 million to $275 million – in the last five years. He 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.”
