London, UK, May 11, 2016 – The NAV People have announced the appointment of Jeff Kiehn as CEO to lead its new North American expansion. Kiehn 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.

Kiehn has over 25 years’ executive management, sales and business development experience, having worked for many large IT companies specialising in the hospitality, retail and grocery markets.

Jeff Kiehn, newly appointed CEO ‘The Americas’ said; ‘Many of The NAV People’s UKcustomers 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 specialise 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.’
