In taking up the position of Marine Area Sales Manager, Ian’s prime function is to provide support in the field for both pleasure and commercial applications of Yanmar’s range of marine diesel engines.

Utilising his accountancy training, Ian occupied various senior roles at the ANZ Banking Group ranging from Finance Manager Projects to Head of Project Accounting.

Signing on at Power Equipment and representing the Yanmar brand is something of a homecoming for Ian Payne. From the mid 1970’s, Ian forged an impressive and diverse career in the Australian marine industry.

Moreover, Ian will be on hand to commission Yanmar installations and oversee sea trials prior to handing new and repowered vessels over to customers.”

According to Ian Payne, his appointment to the position of Marine Area Sales Manager at Power Equipment completes the career circle.

“Working in the marine industry was my passion,” Ian Payne said.
