Mathew brings extensive knowledge and experience to the sales team, most recently as Global Training Director for Navico, and prior to that, positions in Product Management and the Service Organisation.

Mathew’s former roles as a RNZAF Avionics Tech and Service Manager with a leading New Zealand marine electronics company prior to his 10-year tenure at Navico contributed to his understanding, not only of the technology used in Navico’s products, but also the marine industry, especially the needs of dealer networks and their customers.
