Thor Industries Inc., Jackson Center, Ohio, today (May 28) announced a major realignment of management in its Damon Motor Coach and Four Winds International motorhome subsidiaries.
Four Winds President Jeff Kime has resigned to spend more time with his family, according to Thor. “Jeff’s leadership skills, talents and superb 19-year track record at Four Winds have made him the consummate Thor Industries president,” said Dicky Riegel, Thor chief operating officer. “We wish Jeff well.”
Thor also announced that, effective today, both Damon Motor Coach and Four Winds will report to Bill Fenech, who has been promoted to president & CEO of Thor Motorhomes. Fenech previously served as Damon president.
In addition, Dana Simon has been promoted to vice president and general manager of Four Winds, and Matt Thompson has been promoted to vice president and general manager of Damon. Each will report to Fenech.
“Damon and Four Winds remain separate companies producing unique products, even as many support functions have been brought together over the last several months,” said Riegel. “This new structure best serves Damon’s and Four Winds’ dealers and consumers with leading-edge products and services.”
Thor is the world’s largest manufacturer of recreation vehicles and a major builder of commercial buses.
