Adam Dexter, president of Dexter Axle Co., was elected to a supplier seat on the board of directors of the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) during a special runoff election that concluded on Sept.10.
The special election was needed when Dexter and Stan Sunshine, chairman of Stag-Parkway Inc., tied in the balloting for the third and final supplier seat during the regular RVIA elections that ended on Aug. 24. The special election took place from Aug. 27 – Sept. 10 with RVIA official representatives able to cast their votes electronically during that period.
Dexter joins six other candidates elected to the RVIA board in this election cycle. They include five incumbents: Matt Miller, president of Newmar Corp. (manufacturer); Gregg Fore, president of Dicor Corp. (supplier); B.J. Thompson, president of BJ Thompson Associates (supplier); Bob Parish, vice president for G.E. Capital (at-large); and, Jonathan Randall, director of sales and marketing for Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. (at-large).
John Rhymer, co-founder of Heartland Recreational Vehicles, was newly elected to a manufacturer seat.
All those elected to the RVIA board will begin serving their three-year terms on Oct. 1. The RVIA board has the highest level of authority in the association’s organizational structure and is responsible for association matters on a broad policy basis.
