Brunswick Corporation : Brunswick Appoints Schwabero President And Chief Operating Officer

                   Pfeifer Named President of Mercury Marine

 LAKE FOREST, Ill. May 8, 2014 - Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC) today
announced that Mark D. Schwabero has been elected to the newly created post of
president and chief operating officer, reporting to Dustan E. McCoy, chairman
and chief executive officer.

Schwabero, most recently president of Brunswick's Mercury Marine engine segment,
will be succeeded by John C. Pfeifer, who had been vice president - global
operations for Mercury Marine.  These promotions are effective immediately.

As part of this action and to further facilitate the Company's long-term
succession process, Brunswick Boat Group (BBG) President Andrew E. Graves will
be leaving the Company.  Graves' direct reports - Jeff Behan, vice president -
planning and business development; Boston Whaler President Huw Bower, Freshwater
Group President Jeff Kinsey, and Recreation Boat Group President Tim Schiek --
will now report to Schwabero.

In his new position, Schwabero will be responsible for all of Brunswick's day-
to-day operations, with the leadership of the Company's four business segments -
Engine, Boat, Fitness and Bowling & Billiards - reporting to him.

"An important responsibility of our Board of Directors is to ensure that we have
a deep and robust succession process.  Today's announcement reflects the quality
of that process," McCoy said.  "Mark is an accomplished executive who is
intimately familiar with Brunswick's markets, particularly those in the marine
segment from which the Company derives the majority of its sales and earnings.
The role of chief operating officer positions Mark to better learn and actively
manage Brunswick's overall operation, and each of its business segments and to
develop and execute our strategic imperatives.

"John Pfeifer is taking the helm of a Mercury Marine organization that is strong
and vibrant and building upon the momentum of a number of recent new products
and engine innovations," McCoy said.  "John has been an integral member of
Mercury's leadership team, helping to fashion an energized organization that is
setting the pace in today's global marine marketplace.

"In conclusion, the fact that we can adopt and staff such an organization
structure totally from within our management ranks is testimony to the depth,
talent and bench strength that we have fashioned through the years at
Brunswick," McCoy continued.  "We will miss Andy Graves, and we wish him the
best and thank him for his contributions.  He leaves behind a Boat Group that is
better prepared and positioned to continue to prosper in this evolving and
challenging marine market environment."
