Yamaha’s marine unit in the United States appointed Ron Campbell division manager for outboard sales.
Campbell will oversee dealer sales initiatives and programs, Yamaha said in a statement yesterday. He is a 14-year veteran of Yamaha’s WaterCraft division and a former district and regional manager.
“Ron brings extended marine industry sales perspective to the position and is eager to develop strong relationships with Yamaha’s marine dealer network,” Ben Speciale, president of the Yamaha U.S. Marine Business Unit, said in the statement. “His extensive experience in wholesale sales and operations management will serve to help Yamaha and our dealers realize greater sales.”
Campbell succeeds John Rigby, who retired in March.
