Ned Trigg Receives Hammond Marine Industry Leadership Award

The National Marine Manufacturers Association Foundation for Recreational Boating Safety, Education, and Environmental Awareness announced that Ned Trigg, former executive vice president of Dometic’s marine division who recently retired, is the recipient of the 2022 Hammond Marine Industry Leadership Award for his extraordinary service, commitment, and dedication to the long-term health of the recreational boating industry. Trigg was honored in Washington, D.C., during the American Boating Congress (ABC).

Trigg has served the marine industry for over 34 years. He recently announced his retirement from Dometic. During his tenure with the company, Trigg took an assignment based in the United Kingdom for three years managing European, Middle East and African sales, served in executive positions overseeing global system sales and OEM marine sales, and most recently, as general manager of Dometic’s Marine Pompano Division.  Prior to Dometic, Trigg worked at Taylor Made and Marine Development Corporation based in Richmond, Virginia. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering from North Carolina State University.

Trigg was the recent chair of the Marine Leadership Alliance for the past three years.  His extensive service to NMMA includes vice chair and secretary of the Board of Directors, member of the Executive Committee and chair of the Marine Accessory & Components Division (MACD) Board.

In 1997, Mr. Robert (Bob) Hammond, founder of Glastron Boats and a renowned industry pioneer, made a donation to the Foundation for Recreational Boating Safety, Education and Environmental Awareness to establish an annual award recognizing individuals who have helped grow and protect the industry through advocacy and demonstrated dedication to the long-term health of recreational boating – achieving greater sales, stopping unwanted government regulations or seeking needed government regulation, or otherwise helping and benefiting the entire marine industry as distinct from building one’s own. The Hammond Marine Industry Leadership Award was created and is presented annually during the American Boating Congress.
