JACKSON CENTER, Ohio — Thor Industries, Inc., announced today that Jeff Kime will become president of Thor Motor Coach effective Aug. 1.
“Jeff formerly served as president of Four Winds for a period of 16 years when it was Thor’s largest motorhome division. Jeff has a track record of success in the industry and is a seasoned Thor company president. We are very excited to have him back,” said Peter Orthwein, Thor’s CEO.
Ron Fenech, recreation vehicle senior group president, and Bill Fenech, president of Thor Motor Coach, have decided to leave the company. Ron Fenech will be staying for a transitional period during which Thor’s RV Company presidents will continue to report to him. Bill Fenech’s resignation takes effect July 31, which is the end of Thor’s fiscal year.
“Ron and Bill have been instrumental in Thor’s success in building Keystone into the No. 1 RV manufacturer and recently in their current positions,” said Orthwein. “Bill oversaw the combination of Four Winds and Damon to form Thor Motor Coach, and Ron oversaw the reorganization of several of our towable companies as well as the integration of the Heartland acquisition. Their leadership will be missed.”
Thor is the world’s largest manufacturer of recreation vehicles and a major builder of commercial buses and ambulances.
