The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) has made changes to its board of directors and executive committee following the resignation of Paul Eskritt of Fleetwood Enterprises Inc. from his elected positions.
Fleetwood has appointed John Draheim, vice president of the Motor Home Division, to fill the company’s manufacturer seat on the RVIA board for the remainder of the fiscal year, ending Sept. 30. Draheim will run for re-election to that seat during the association elections taking place in August.
Meanwhile, RVIA Chairman Jim Sheldon of Monaco RV has appointed RVIA board member Bob Olson, chairman, president and CEO of Winnebago Industries Inc., to fill the secretary position on the RVIA Executive Committee, filling the vacancy created by Eskritt’s resignation. Olson will hold that seat until the next RVIA board meeting, set for Sept.14 in Hershey, Pa., at which time the board will elect officers to the fiscal year 2010 Executive Committee.
