Ian Payne - Yanmar Marine Area Sales Manager Yanmar
Power Equipment has announced the appointment of Ian Payne to the position of Yanmar Marine Area Sales Manager.

Based at Power Equipment’s head office in Lynbrook (Melbourne), Ian Payne has regional responsibility for Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania.

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.

In addition to the Yanmar product range, Ian will be assisting customers with the full line of marine brands distributed by Power Equipment, being MASE diesel marine generators, OXE diesel outboards, Gori high quality folding sailboat propellers, PSS Shaft Seals and Northern Lights Gen Sets.

For Ian Payne, the appointment enables him to follow his passion for boating and the marine industry. Over the past 20 years, Ian has filled senior management positions in the banking industry. 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.

Over an impressive career spanning two decades, Ian worked in retail sales then area management with several outboard and power product brands. These included Johnson/Evinrude, Force Outboards and Suzuki.

Ian Payne brings to Power Equipment and the Yanmar customer base, a unique blend of marine industry knowledge, marine engine experience and an exceptionally strong management and financial skill set.

“Ian Payne is a highly-credentialed marine professional who is an invaluable resource for our customers to access,” said Mark Butterflied, National Marine Sales Manager for Power Equipment.

“Ian is now available to assist Yanmar OEM customers and the dealer network. His background and experience specifically enables Ian to advise on product selection and installation.”

“A strength of Yanmar is that we have people like Ian Payne within our structure who are available to provide application engineering advice to customers. 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.

“To leave my banking career and return to marine is a genuine delight. This is an industry which I know. I have great affinity with the Yanmar product, the customers and the applications.”

“The Yanmar brand is a premium quality product and the product range is exceptional. I’m very thrilled to be representing the brand and I am looking forward to working with our OEM customers and end users alike.”
