TAMPA — Hendry Marine Industries and Gulf Marine Corp., a tub-barge shipyard, named Jim Long CEO.

Long took over the position Jan. 18. Gulf Marine and Hendry consolidated into one Tampa-based affiliated company in November, and the hiring of Long is a part of the consolidation plan, according to a statement.
