“Ben’s leadership in the newly formed operations team was instrumental in its success,” Yamaha Marine Group vice president Bill Boehman said in a statement.
“In the last five years marine operations has improved processes and efficiencies, expanded into areas of new responsibility and has further developed its team members for other roles in the marine group. We look forward to having Ben on the marine group’s senior leadership team.”
