The Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) board elected Scott Krenek, owner of Krenek RV Center of Coloma, Mich., to chair the RV Rental Association (RVRA).
According to a press release, he will serve out the unexpired term of outgoing RVRA Chairman Bert Alanko of MBA Insurance and serve an additional year as the rental association’s representative on the RVDA board.
“I would like to thank the RVDA board on my election to RVRA Chairman,” Krenek said. “I look forward to working with the RVDA board to continue and build on the great work of former Chairman Bert Alanko. I encourage all RVRA/RVDA members to diversify, plus expand their RV rental fleets, and to take advantage of all the education opportunities RVRA/RVDA offers.”
Krenek brings to the position an extensive background in the RV rental business and a reputation as a leader in the field. An owner and operator for more than 35 years, he was instrumental in starting the industry’s first 20 Group focused exclusively on helping dealers improve their rental operations. Krenek has also served as an instructor at the RV Dealers International Convention/Expo and the annual RV Rental School organized by MBA Insurance.
“Scott has a long history of serving RVRA and its members as an educator and mentor,” said RVDA Chairman Jeff Hirsch of Campers Inn. “We are pleased he will be joining the RVDA Board of Directors.”
The action took place during the RVDA board meeting in Fairfax, Va., March 18-20. In other related action, the board:
• Approved recommendations by the Nominating Committee to institute a new policy that will include the RVRA chairman’s position in the association’s annual nomination and election process.
• Directed the RVRA board to recommend an organizational structure for the rental association in accordance with the RVDA bylaws.
RVRA is the national association of RV rental companies and a division of RVDA.
