Yamaha names Jonathon Burns general manager of Precision Propeller Industries

Yamaha Marine Group announced the promotion of Jonathon Burns to General Manager of Precision Propeller Industries, Inc. (PPI), a wholly owned, independently operated subsidiary of Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., and the company that produces all Yamaha-branded stainless steel propellers. He will begin his new position with PPI this March.

Burns originally joined the Yamaha Marine Group as a sales coordinator at Skeeter Boats in May of 2000, then moved to the marine group’s operations and planning division in 2004 as a market analyst. In 2010, Burns was promoted to division manager of Yamaha Marine Operations and Planning where he has served as a member of the marine group’s senior leadership team for more than five years.

“Jonathon has been a leader in many of the key initiatives that have made Yamaha what it is today,” said Ben Speciale, president of Yamaha Marine Group. “Though I will miss having his expertise and friendship in our home office on a daily basis, I have great confidence in the excellent work he will do as the new General Manager of PPI.”

During his 15-year career with Yamaha, Burns has been deeply involved in business planning for both the Yamaha Marine Group and Yamaha companies, PPI, Skeeter Boats, Inc., and G3 Boats.
