Navimo, a European leader in boating equipment, appointed Christopher J. Lang as CEO of Navimo USA, effective July 8.

Lang, 52, has 20 years experience in the deck equipment products industry, holding successive marketing and sales positions with Simpson Lawrence Engineering and Lewmar. More recently, he was the sales director of Maxwell Marine Ltd.

Located in Sarasota, Fla., the Navimo USA operation is a fully owned subsidiary of the Navimo Group and targets the boatbuilding and retail segments.
