Young Will Manage Dutchmen’s ‘Kodiak’ Brand
Dutchmen Manufacturing Inc. has named Aaron Young product manager for its Kodiak travel trailer division, according to a press release. In his new position, Young is responsible for Kodiak product development, expanding market penetration and dealer relationships throughout the United States and Canada.
Young comes to Goshen, Ind.-based Dutchmen after 14 years in the field, where he was most recently product and sales manager for a line of fifth-wheels. “Aaron has a strong, successful history in the RV industry, and we’re glad to have him with us,” said Ryan Thwaits, general manager. “He brings extensive experience in dealer relationships and product development. This guy is going places, and we’re excited he’s joined ‘Team Kodiak.’”
The 2014 Kodiak lineup includes ultralight expandables and well-appointed travel trailers. Most Kodiaks feature at least one slideout for a more spacious and usable living area. “I’m really fortunate to have joined Dutchmen at this point in time,” Young stated. “You won’t believe what the 2014 Kodiak exteriors look like.”
Depending on the model, 2014 Kodiaks feature all-new colorful exteriors and interior decors. Many ultralite Kodiaks can be towed by most types of minivans, crossovers and light trucks. Innovative floorplans allow plenty of storage and living space, a variety of popular standard features and an array of luxury-adding options.
Young graduated from the University of Georgia with a bachelor’s in business administration. He resides in Goshen and can be contacted at (229) 425-9014, or via e-mail at email@example.com.
