Reconcraft, Portland, Ore., announced that Josh Pruzek has been named executive vice president, effective Jan. 1.

Pruzek brings two decades of experience in the specialized marine manufacturing industry from his previous positions at Vigor and Oregon Iron Works.

“I’m thrilled to join Reconcraft and look forward to collaborating with our military, government, and international partners to develop and deliver solutions that improve their capabilities,” Pruzek said in a prepared statement. “We have a world-class team of highly experienced craftsmen, engineers, and support staff committed to quality and with a passion for building specialized and innovative vessels.
