We're all set for North American expansion and are recruiting staff and new business partners for growth into US retail and hospitality sectors!
We're pleased to announce the appointment of Jeff Kiehn as CEO to lead our North American expansion. Jeff will be responsible for establishing The NAV People operations in the US and Canada, recruiting staff and signing up a network of partners to replicate the successful UK business model delivering industry specific solutions. The NAV People started trading in the UK in 2009, growing the business through word of mouth to become the country’s no.1 reseller solely concentrated on Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
Jeff has over 25 years’ executive management, sales and business development experience, having worked for many large IT companies specializing in the hospitality, retail and grocery markets. He joins us from Omnico (US), provider of enterprise POS, analytics and omni channel solutions, where he held the position of EVP (Americas and Global Entertainment) improving the US operations from a loss to an annual profit of $3.5m. Other previous roles include President of Cenium, provider of a Microsoft ERP based Hospitality and Retail solution with clients from many international hotel chains, resorts and restaurants; and General Manager, VP Sales at Retail Evolution, a North American Partner for Microsoft Dynamics and LS Retail. Jeff started his early career working for companies in Europe and Canada providing retail solutions to the hospitality and retail sectors.
As the newly appointed CEO ‘The Americas’, Jeff said; ‘Many of The NAV People’s UK customers already have affiliate or subsidiary partners in the US, providing us with a strong foundation upon which to build the business. The NAV People have a highly successful, unique business model for developing products and building customer relationships that differs from many partner companies in the US and offers a great opportunity. Our implementation methodology delivers high customer satisfaction which, coupled with great industry specific product development, will give us a fantastic jumpstart into the US market.’
Ian Humphries, Managing & Product Director at The NAV People commented; ‘Jeff brings with him a wealth of experience of working for companies that specialize in providing ERP and IT solutions for the retail, hospitality and leisure industries. His expertise in strategic selling and building partner relationships will be invaluable as we look to expand our innovative business model into the US.’
Our US enterprise intends to focus on the retail, hotel & hospitality, business process outsourcing and distribution markets, working with customers who already have or are considering Microsoft Dynamics NAV installations and offering the stunning support we have become known for!
