Swimming New Zealand Battles To Stay Afloat In A Crowded Pool

With his flight delayed by wind and driving rain, Brunswick Corp. Chief Executive Dustan McCoy stood just inside a hangar at Waukegan Regional Airport and watched a tiny Cessna trying to land. The pilot finally touched down on his third try.

"I've got to give him credit," said McCoy, a former Army helicopter pilot familiar with distressing situations.

A lawyer by training, he has spent the past several years steering the world's largest maker of marine engines and pleasure boats — luxury items suited for boom times — through the worst economic decline since the Great Depression. McCoy jettisoned 44 percent of its employees in a major downsizing to keep the 166-year-old company afloat.

McCoy, an expansion-minded deal-maker, had spent pre-recession years adding boat companies to Brunswick's roster, only to be forced to reverse course and reduce boat brands from 24 to 16.
