The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) has announced the promotions of staff members in the legal, adminstrative, and standards department.
Craig Kirby has been promoted to vice president of international business and general counsel. “For the past four years, Craig has been instrumental in carrying out the board of directors’ wishes in expanding the U.S. RV industry influence and opportunities internationally,” said RVIA President Richard Coon. “Beyond strong legal skills, Craig’s relationship with the U.S. Department of Commerce makes him an ideal executive to head the association’s international activities.”
Kirby joined RVIA in 1994 and has served as vice president and general counsel since 1995, heading the association’s legal activities.
Kent Perkins, RVIA’s director of RV standards, has been promoted to senior director of RV standards. “Kent has played a crucial role recently in a wide variety of standards activities such as serving as the lead in the harmonization of the U.S. and Canadian standards, the integration of recreational park trailer standards activities, and the development of standards topics to be presented at the 2nd World RV Conference,” said Coon. Perkins has been with RVIA since 1985.
Alice Wang, RVIA’s human resources manager, has been promoted to director of human resources. Wang has been a dedicated member of the administrative department for more than 11 years, serving in her current position for the past four years.
