New global sales manager for savvy navvy

Navigation app savvy navvy has appointed Jacco Willemsen as its new global sales manager, responsible for creating a global distributor network to further increase app sales.

Jacco is based in the Netherlands and has spent most of his career within the marine industry, spending the last decade leading sales for Navionics (Garmin) especially in the USA, Europe and Middle East.

And he said he has been impressed by savvy navvy’s user-friendly design, interface and its continued global growth.

“I have kept an eye on savvy navvy closely the past few years and now felt like the right time for a new challenge,” said Jacco.

“Offering clutter-free charts and smart routing, savvy navvy is really challenging the bigger navigation apps on the market. The idea is to create a global distributor network, allowing dealers to earn from the app, which is a unique advantage compared to other products in the market.”

Jelte Liebrand, founder and CEO of savvy navvy, added: “We’re super excited to welcome Jacco on board as we continue to scale up savvy navvy.

“His wealth of experience and innovative ideas to get us into dealers as the first navigation application is very much in line with our vision to support the industry and getting more people to enjoy the water through safer and simpler navigation.”

Jacco’s appointment comes after savvy navvy reached more than 1.8 million downloads and launched its latest feature ‘Importing Markers’ which allows users to import their favourite locations and markers from various navigational tools using a GPX file upload.
