Polaris Announces Departure of Chairman and CEO

Wine will remain in his current role at Polaris through the end of the year as the board executes its succession plans.

Polaris Inc. announced that Chairman and CEO Scott Wine will leave Polaris to assume the CEO role at CNH Industrial. Wine will remain in his current role at Polaris through the end of the year as the board executes its succession plans. Transition plans will be announced at a later date.

“For the last 12 years, I have had the extraordinary honor of leading the best team in powersports, and it is incredibly rewarding to reflect on all that we have accomplished together,” said Wine. “I am most proud of the team and the culture that have made working here so gratifying, and having witnessed firsthand the ingenuity, passion and drive that permeates the company, I leave with complete confidence that Polaris’ future is bright. I also want to offer my sincere thanks to my incredibly talented colleagues and to the Polaris Board for their guidance and leadership during my tenure.”

“Scott has been an exceptional leader for Polaris. During his tenure, Polaris grew from a strong Minnesota company into a global leader in the powersports market—more than tripling sales and vaulting Polaris into the Fortune 500,” said Polaris’ Lead Independent Director John Wiehoff. “Scott has assembled an experienced and highly capable executive team, and together they have built an incredible strategy and platform that will drive Polaris’ continued success. The Board is grateful for his vision and contributions and wishes him the best in his new role.”

Wine joined Polaris in 2008 as CEO and was elected as chairman of the board in 2013. During his time as CEO, Polaris grew from a $1.9 billion organization to a nearly $7 billion global powersports Company. Today, Polaris is a leader in powersports aimed at helping the world ‘Think Outside’ through its diverse portfolio of 30+ brands. In its pursuit of being a customer-centric highly efficient growth company, Polaris has continually invested in product research & development, focused on elevating technology and digital offerings, and expanded into new and adjacent markets, including boats and aftermarket.
