Elkhart, Ind.-based Lippert Components Inc. (LCI) hired Larry Revelino as director of international business relations, according to a press release. With more than 15 years of experience in the RV industry, including working with manufacturers in the European and Australian RV/caravan markets, Revelino will help LCI understand the global marketplace.
“LCI is made up of exceptionally creative and talented industry professionals,” said Revelino. “I’m excited to be a part of a team that can see an opportunity in the market and identify resources to capitalize on that opportunity.”
Revelino has led several RV-related businesses, including RBW Industries, which specialized in hitches, stabilization mechanisms and slideout systems. Most recently he worked as vice president of tactical projects for a global RV component supplier.
In his new position, Revelino will spend time in Australia, Europe and other international markets assessing the dynamics of the local marketplace, building relationships with OEMs and developing products.
LCI CEO Jason Lippert is excited to have Revelino on board and believes he will help LCI grow its global presence and tap into potential new markets. “Over the past several years, LCI has been slowly growing business in Europe and Australia,” he said. “We have a few key relationships in place, and it’s time to expand our overseas business development. Larry knows our products well and will work to develop strong relationships with international customers so that we can potentially grow our presence and business there in the future.”
Revelino added, “LCI is an outstanding company. I’ve always admired its ability to develop groundbreaking products. I’m excited to represent LCI in the international marketplace and to help grow our product offerings as well as tailor new products specifically for international customers.”
