Taylor Scism Promoted To MTI Vice-President The newly appointed vice-president of MTI, Taylor Scism has elevated her career since joining in 2018. With a business degree in manufacturing, she excelled as a client relations manager and conquered offshore powerboat racing, clinching APBA national and world titles. With a blend of business acumen and a passion for high-performance watercraft, Taylor’s transition to MTI vice-president marks a pivotal moment for the company as she embraces a more active role in daily operations while continuing to pursue her love for racing and event management.

Since joining MTI in 2018, Taylor Scism has been on a clear upward trajectory, and not simply because the 27 year old is the daughter of company founder Randy Scism and his wife, Cherell. Scism came to the company with a business degree, with a specialty in manufacturing, from Ole Miss University and thrived in her position as client relations manager.

And in her spare time for the past few years, she spearheaded offshore powerboat racing’s thriving 450R Factory Stock class. Last year, Scism and her TS Motorsports team throttleman John Tomlinson earned an American Power Boat Association national championship in the class. In 2022, they earned APBA world and national titles in the category.

Now Scism can add vice-president to her heady resume. Employees of the Wentzville, Mo., company were officially informed today that Scism has moved into the position. As such, she will assume a more active management role within the high-performance catamaran and center console builder’s daily manufacturing operations.

As the pioneer of the 450R Factory Stock class, Scism has notched two APBA national titles and one APBA world title. 

“I love the organization, planning, and logistics of the events which I won’t be fully leaving behind but be less in the details,” said Scism, who is set to marry MTI sales and asset manager Shaun Peters this spring. “I’ve brought on someone new to help with the marketing and I’ve got two outsourced people and groups to help with the events and apparel. It definitely will be a transition, not something that happens overnight.”

Said her clearly delighted and proud father, “It’s all part of the plan to keep MTI the way we want it.”
