Yamaha Marine Group said today that it promoted Ben Mallett to division manager of marine operations and business planning.

The company said Mallett will be deeply involved in planning for the Yamaha Marine Group and the Yamaha companies Precision Propeller Industries; Skeeter Products; and G3 Boats.

Mallett joined Yamaha in 2006 as Southeast regional sales coordinator for marine dealer sales. In 2008 he took on the role of market analyst for the marine executive group, and in the ensuing years he helped to develop a newly structured operations team, which he led as supervisor in 2011 and as manager until his promotion to division manager in June, he company said.

“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.”
