Thor puts board diversity policy in place

ELKHART, Ind. — Thor Industries has announced that its Board of Directors, at its October 11 meeting, formally approved a policy promoting diversity within the board.

The policy requires all initial lists of candidates from which new director nominees are chosen by the board’s Nominating and Governance Committee to include qualified candidates with diversity of race, ethnicity and gender.

Peter B. Orthwein, chairman of the Board of Directors, stated, “Thor’s Board of Directors recognizes the importance of diversity within its ranks. Although the Board has followed this policy in prior director searches, the Board has formally adopted this policy to serve as an expression and reaffirmation of its dedication to drive that diversity.”

The policy became effective immediately upon adoption.

  1. If Thorn based board on meritocracy rather than diversity, they would build a better product. See Japan.
