New Role for Kelvin Hughes' Director

Martin Taylor, Managing Director ChartCo

ChartCo has recently announced the appointment of Martin Taylor as Managing Director of ChartCo Limited with effect from 1st November 2010.

Taylor, Equipment Business Director for Kelvin Hughes since 2007, moves to a new post to take control of the Kelvin Hughes Group navigational data, superyacht and leisure business, ChartCo Limited.

Russell Gould, Chief Executive of Kelvin Hughes said: with Martin's 16 years experience of ECDIS and the marine electronics industry, he is the perfect choice to lead this business through the changes that will undoubtedly come with the transition from paper to electronic navigation.

Commenting on his new role Martin Taylor said: As an ECDIS manufacturer, the leading supplier of paper charts and with ChartCo as the industry preferred source of updates and electronic information, we are in a prime position to make the transition to electronic charts as painless as possible for our customers.

Our new service; ECDISplus, provides data, updates, equipment, training and global service in one unique package and is aimed at making ECDIS implementation as straight-forward as possible. Our focus is to minimise transition costs for customers and we believe that no other company can offer all the components to do this.

With almost 10,000 vessels currently managed through our Outfit Management and ChartCo services we understand the complexities that are involved with ECDIS data management. We have specifically targeted new products such as PassageManager that simplify navigation and chart management whilst taking into account customer preferences.
