With more than 30 years experience in sales and marketing, John Selman is joining the Reeds Nautical Online Almanac team as a senior consultant.

Selman will be responsible for building relationships throughout the marine industry and increasing awareness of the new online version of the almanac.

“There aren’t too many people in the marine sector that don’t know John personally and we are delighted to welcome him to the team,” said managing director Simon Whittley. “His communication skills and knowledge of the industry will be invaluable to further developing the business.”

Selman said his interest in sailing introduced him to the Reeds Almanac many years ago.

“I am now looking forward to working on the online version of this well-established brand,” he said in a statement. “Online technology is playing an increasingly bigger part in the marine world and for the almanac to be available online seems entirely appropriate.”

The Reeds Nautical Online Almanac edition is scheduled to launch in August.
