Navtech Continues to Build World-Class Management Team with Recent Additions

Waterloo, ON - October 20, 2014 - Navtech Inc., a leader in flight operations software and services, announces the hiring of three industry leaders for its Sales and Product Management teams.  Joining this fall, Mark ter Hove will serve as Senior Director Sales & Account Management, EMEA Region; Ralf Sieprath will serve as Director, Product Management - Navigational Data; and Axel Friedrich will serve as Director, Product Management - Charting.

 Mark ter Hove joined the Navtech Sales team and brings nearly 20 years of aviation experience to the Company. He is a thought leader with a strategic approach to business development and has a strong understanding of airline flight operations.  Mark's previous roles included senior positions within sales, business development, and account management.  His experience is unique because he has been on both sides of the equation, the airline and the supplier, with organizations including Jeppesen, Astraeus Airlines and Paragon Global Flight Support. In this role, Mark will be responsible for all commercial activities in the EMEA Region.

Ralf Sieprath joined Navtech's Navigational Data Product Management team in early September. He brings over 30 years of experience in both the military and civil aviation sectors, working for Jeppesen, Swissair Flight Support and LIDO Lufthansa Systems. Ralf's expertise is in building the process of taking aeronautical data management to full operational use; he has implemented Aeronautical Information Management (AIM) projects in numerous countries. In this role, he will provide leadership for the team responsible for the production and quality of the Navdata product, as well as collaboration with customers and innovation to meet the needs of the market.

Axel Friedrich joined Navtech's Charts and EFB Product Management team in early October. He is an expert in the field of aeronautical information management and has held senior positions at the Federal Office of Civil Aviation in Switzerland and Lufthansa Systems. Axel completed his doctorate in Mechanical Engineering, Flight Systems and Control in Germany at Technische Universität Darmstadt where his thesis focused on the valuation of generation and updated methods for safety-critical aerodrome mapping databases. In this role, Axel will be responsible for guiding Navtech's electronic charts and EFB solutions, as well as the Charting product line in general, to enhance safety and user experience in the cockpit.

The addition of these three industry leaders to a world-class management team highlight Navtech's continued commitment and investment in the business.  Navtech's aggressive, nimble approach to the market coupled with a winning strategic plan and innovative product suite continues to attract customers and employees.
