Leatherman's responsibilities include overall technical business direction as well as the development of Yamaha's OEM technical and tournament support staff. He will also be responsible for the development of the Yamaha Outboard Application Engineering/Rigging and Performance Training, testing duties, policies, procedures and requirements pertaining to OEM boatbuilder accounts.
