Yamaha Marine Group today announced the promotion of Bill Boehman to vice president of the Yamaha Marine Group’s operations and manufacturing.

Yamaha said Boehman also will continue to serve as vice president of Precision Propeller Industries Inc. and will take on the additional title of vice president of Skeeter Products Inc. He will begin his new position in Kennesaw, Ga., this month.

Boehman was promoted to vice president of PPI in the spring of 2015. Yamaha said he oversaw the addition of a 12,000-square-foot manufacturing space at PPI, increased the plant’s output by 60 percent and reduced scrap ratios from 5 percent to less than 1 percent. The foundry industry average remains at 7 percent.

“The leadership, industry knowledge and vision Bill will bring to the Marine Group in his new role are valuable assets,” Yamaha Marine Group president Ben Speciale said in a statement. “The efficiency and production outcomes that resulted from his leadership at PPI are nothing short of remarkable, and we are excited to have him join the team here in our corporate headquarters.”

Boehman’s experience in manufacturing has included roles as plant controller, materials manager and Six Sigma Black Belt. He holds a bachelor’s degree in finance and economics from the University of Kentucky and a master’s degree in manufacturing management from Southern Methodist University.
