LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. — Camping World and Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam, today announced that effective Oct. 1, Don Wallace, RV Hall of Famer, co-founder and former CEO of Lazydays RV Super Center, joins their management team. The company has assigned Wallace the responsibility of overseeing the company’s efforts in the Tampa market.
“We are pleased to bring on board an RV executive of such business acumen and accomplishments as Don Wallace,” said Lemonis. “His reputation as a groundbreaker fits our requirements for leadership. I look forward to having Don assist Roger Nuttall, Camping World retail group president, on our continued growth of the RV market starting in the Tampa market. Not only does he bring the depth and breadth of financial and management expertise that will be instrumental in our expansion, he also already has an extensive knowledge of the organization and our core values.”
“After 37 years in the RV industry, I’m excited to get back in the game,” said Wallace. “I see the developments that the Camping World brand has made throughout the entire country and their vision is one I believe in. I look forward to helping Roger Nuttall execute his plan and strengthen our relationships with our loyal customers and manufacturers.”
Camping World recently relocated its facility and renovated their new McIntosh Road Tampa SuperCenter at Exit 14 on I-4 to be the largest retail facility in the company’s 100 location dealer network, Lemonis explained. The Camping World of Tampa underwent an expansion to expand and renovate into an 80,000 square foot facility including 40 additional service bays, a new 17,000 square foot Camping World retail store and a state-of-the-art collision center.
The new facility is hosting a VIP event with Lemonis, Oct. 4 from 5 to 7 p.m. EDT, and then hosting the grand opening event Oct. 9 to 19 with door busters and special prizes for customers.
