SureShade, the U.S. designer and manufacturer of retractable sunshade systems for the marine industry, is proud to announce that Dana Russikoff, SureShade’s business leader and co-founder, was honored by Boating Industry Magazine as a 2016 Movers & Shakers Finalist.

The 6th annual Movers & Shakers Awards recognizes the top leaders in the boating industry, innovators that are willing to challenge the status quo. They are the people who make the moves that shake up and better their companies and the entire industry. From consolidating leading brands to introducing new technology to boating to educating the industry, these 10 individuals are helping set the standard and grow the boating industry.

SureShade’s Dana Russikoff was one of four announced as 2016 Movers & Shakers during the opening day of the 2016 IBEX International Boatbuilders Exhibition and Conference. Russikoff’s contributions to SureShade’s early development and continued success, as well as the company’s commitment to manufacturing and industry growth, will be detailed in Boating Industry’s October issue.
