Lazydays RV today (Oct. 17) announced the resignation of President & CEO Tim Sheehan “for family reasons” and has named current board chairman William P. “Bill” Murnane as the new CEO, effective Dec. 1. Murname remains chairman.

Sheehan, who joined 40-year-old Lazydays as CEO in April of 2013 after 28 years as an executive with Best Buy, has led an impressive era of growth for Lazydays, one of the nation’s largest RV retailers with 722 employees and stores stocking some 2,500 new and pre-owned RV’s located in Seffner, Fla. and Tucson, Ariz., as well as Loveland, Aurora and Longmont, Col.

“I would like to thank the amazing employees at Lazydays RV for a life-changing experience,” Sheehan stated in a prepared release. “Everyone works hard toward a common vision focused on the customer. This helped grow the company in so many areas. My goal of positioning this great company for the future has been accomplished. Since day one, leaders throughout the RV industry have been so gracious and willing to support us. Thank you all very much.”

Murnane, a Harvard Business School grad who has been Lazydays’ chairman since December of 2009 when Wayzata Investment Partners LLC — of which he is a principal — became the dealership’s primary owner. He previously served as chairman and CEO of Innovex Inc.

“The board and I thank Tim for his outstanding leadership,” stated Murnane. “Lazydays RV has made great strides under his guidance and is a much stronger company as a result. Tim will be sorely missed, but he has created a system and structure that is well prepared to handle this transition without disrupting Lazydays’ great progress. I am excited to become a full-time member of the Lazydays management team and work with its tremendous employees. My primary goal is to help Lazydays become the clear dealership of choice in the rapidly growing RV industry.”

Lazydays’ management, which declined further comment regarding Sheehan’s exit, has gained national exposure recently in the Travel Channel’s “Big Time RV” show and by partnering with high profile sports teams, including the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Denver Broncos and the University of Florida. Lazydays has also introduced a new series of “Accessories & More” parts and accessories stores at its Florida and Colorado locations and, soon, at its Arizona facility as well.
