(BELLINGHAM, Wash.) — The owners and board of directors of All American Marine (AAM) have announced the appointment of Ron Wille as the organization’s next president.
Wille brings to the position several decades of leadership and maritime experience. He became an integral part of the AAM team, joining in 2018 as the business development manager. Previously, he had a decade-long business relationship with AAM, working at Kenai Fjords Tours in Seward, Alaska. During that period, Kenai Fjords Tours purchased and operated three AAM hydrofoil-assisted catamarans. His past maritime experience managing and directing large company operations has left him particularly suited for the role. In addition, his maritime career also includes experience on tugboats that specialized in commercial ship assists and commercial towing in south-central Alaska.
In addition to being a licensed merchant mariner, Wille holds a bachelor of science degree in business administration from Oakland University in Rochester, Mich.
As president of All American Marine, Wille will continue to explore new business opportunities, oversee the existing staff, and increase his role in vessel contracting. Working with the AAM team, he will also oversee new hires and maintaining and building upon the commitment to high workplace standards.
“During my initial interview with Matt Mullett (AAM’s owner), he indicated he is always considering the future and how the business can be taken to the next level. In this situation the future will mean a decreased day-to-day role for him at AAM as he pursues additional time with his family and his many other interests. Matt has had a tremendously successful business career and has built not only a thriving business but an exceptional team here at AAM,” Wille said.
Mullett will continue to serve as CEO and special adviser to the management team.
