NNG expands North American presence with new automotive office

NNG — developer of the award-winning iGO Navigation software and an industry-leading supplier of automotive navigation software, content, and services — today announced the opening of its North American Automotive offices. The move is part of NNG’s strategic expansion to support its growing business and will help the company facilitate growth in North America while strengthening local sales, marketing, engineering, and research and development support teams. Company president David Wiernik carried out the opening.
 
The new offices will house the company’s North American senior executives, as well as sales, marketing, supply chain management, and engineering support teams. The prime location provides easy access to customer and partner locations.
 
“The North American market remains a significant opportunity for NNG and will be a critical proving ground for our new technologies,” said Jim Robnett, Vice President of Business Development, NNG. “Suburban Detroit is the focal point of the automotive industry. This, coupled with the exceptional technical talent located in southeast Michigan and the close proximity to our customers and partners, made Birmingham an ideal location for NNG’s new North American Automotive offices. Consumer demand for a truly integrated and differentiated navigation experience in the car continues to intensify, and NNG is well positioned to capitalize on an ever-growing need.”
 
Robnett — charged with helping NNG expand its business with U.S. automakers — will lead the Detroit office.  He has more than 20 years of experience in the automotive and technology sectors.  Prior to joining NNG, Robnett was Director of Chrysler Uconnect Systems at Chrysler Group LLC.  He earned his Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan, and earned his MBA from Michigan State University.
 
Late last year NNG won a bronze International Business Award presented by the Stevie Awards for “Fastest Growing Company in North America.” The award recognized NNG’s effort to deliver affordable navigation solutions around the world, delivering on its promise of delivering “Navigation for all.”
