ELKHART — Following the RV Power Breakfast Thursday in Elkhart, John DiPietro, with RV Insights, interviewed Grand Design CEO Don Clark and his son, Austin, who works as an intern at the company.

Austin, a freshman at Butler University, said he has an opportunity to view every level of the operation.

“The employees all buy into the mission of the company,” Austin explained. “Everyone has bought in to the vision of Grand Design and where the company wants to go.”

Don, who has been working in the RV industry for 37 years, credits his success to a passion for the RV lifestyle.

“I wouldn’t have done this job if I didn’t have passion for this industry for more than three decades,”he explained. “You can get a job anywhere, but a career is different.”

Don Clark encouraged other industry families with college-age kids to encourage their children to consider careers in the industry.
