    We don’t normally post trade personnel press release like this, but Navico CEO is arguably the biggest job in recreational marine electronics because that’s nearly 100% of Navico’s business while the other major brands are divisions of much larger companies or in the case of Furuno more commercial than recreational.

    So does this change of leadership mean a directional change for Navico? I don’t know but suspect not as Knut Frostad has been an active board member for over a decade. I’ll miss Leif Ottosson as he was an unusually passionate and communicative CEO, but I met Knut many years ago at a Navico event and have high hopes. The biggest job in rec marine electronics is now held by a serious sailor, and maybe that’s a good thing.
