Yamaha Marine Group named Jonathon Burns general manager of Precision Propeller Industries, an independently operated subsidiary of Yamaha Motor Corp. U.S.A. and the company that produces all Yamaha-branded stainless-steel propellers.

Burns 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 he 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,” Yamaha Marine Group president Ben Speciale said in a statement. “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 involved in business planning for the Yamaha marine group and the Yamaha companies PPI; Skeeter Boats Inc.; and G3 Boats.
