Braxton RV appoints new CEO

SHIPSHEWANA, Ind. — Braxton Creek Recreational Vehicles has announced that industry veteran Jim Jacobs is joining as an equity investor and has been appointed CEO. Jacobs will also serve on the company board of directors.

Jacobs brings over three decades of recreational vehicle industry experience having grown up in the industry and having previously held executive level positions at King of the Road, Jayco Inc. and the REV Recreation Group.

“Jim is a strategic, results-orientated RV executive who excels at achieving operational excellence and has great industry relations,” said Kent Yoder, one of the BCRV founders and board member. “Importantly, he is an exceptional leader and someone who will help take Braxton Creek to a high level by partnering with the strongest dealers, and delivering great products for our customers”.

Jacobs noted, “I am truly excited about joining BCRV, and the team Kent and the other shareholders have created. For me, the RV business has always been about relationships, and creating a positive company culture that really lives by the ‘golden rule.’ That approach is exactly the type of company the founders of BCRV envisioned when they started out and I am truly thankful they have invited me to be a part of it.

Yoder added, “We are extremely excited about the outlook for Braxton Creek RV with Jim coming on board. We have a few other big things we are working on in the coming weeks, game-changing things that will continue to bring a new excitement, new energy and new expertise for our customers, dealer partners and employees.”
