Woodland Park Adding Doran to Sales Team
Middlebury, Ind.-based Woodland Park announced the addition of Tony Doran to its sales team.
According to a press release, Doran brings 25-30 years of sales experience, the majority within the RV industry. Woodland Park said the move was in response to rapid growth in the U.S. market for its line of luxury park models.
“I’m excited to get fully in to my new territory, get to know all my dealers and continue sales training,” said Doran. “It’s exciting to work with such a great team and a product that stands so tall against the rest of the competition. It’s truly refreshing to have the opportunity to work for a manufacturer who partners with their dealers and who has such a keen focus on building loyal, fun and long-lasting relationships that will stand the test of time and grow more each year.”
He added, “I’m also looking forward to helping our dealers strengthen existing partnerships with resorts in their market area and also forging new relationships.”
Daryle Lambright, North American sales manager, noted, “It’s exciting to see the growth in the US market and we’re confident with the addition of Tony, we can continue to grow our market share and grow our dealer base. Normally we look for someone from outside the industry, or that has housing or construction experience, to assist in the customizing process. With Tony, we found a remarkable blend of not only industry experience, but also a wealth of custom experience from other mid- to high-range luxury manufacturers.”
Lambright said that understanding the product was key to the position. “It was very important for us to make sure Tony had a great base of knowledge and also a solid understanding of all the sales and order processes involved in our product. At Woodland Park we believe in lots of ongoing training for our dealers and staff and it was important for him to have the knowledge to properly train the sales staff and answer any questions customers may have. He’s spent extensive time in training, along with other members of our team, getting him prepared to train the dealer’s sales staff. He has learned our product very quickly as well as the competition and is eager to get in touch with all of you and introduce himself.”
