Navico promoted Louis Chemi to chief operating officer for the Americas. He will direct all sales, marketing and operations activities for the B&G, Eagle, Lowrance, Northstar and Simrad brands throughout North, Central and South America.

Bringing more than 14 years of marine industry experience to the position, Chemi was hired by Navico in 2007 to lead its product management organization. He was appointed executive vice president of sales and marketing for the Americas in September 2008.

Navico says Chemi's record of success in product development, marketing and sales in the industry, his understanding of what is required to bring high-quality products to the marine market and his passion for customer service, make him the ideal person to adopt the COO role.

Prior to joining Navico, Chemi spent seven years as global product manager with Raymarine. He holds a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from Old Dominion University and a Master of Science in applied marine physics from the University of Miami. He carries a 100-ton US Coast Guard Master's license, and is an avid fisherman and boater.
