MIDDLEBURY — It turns out that two apparently unrelated announcements from within the RV industry Tuesday actually had a lot to do with each other.
One hour after Grand Design RV celebrated its 100th employee, 100th unit built and 100th day of shipping to customers Tuesday, March 19, Thor Industries announced management changes at the top of Dutchmen and Keystone, occasioned by the departure of Cam Boyer as head of Thor subsidiary Dutchmen.
On Thursday, Grand Design announced that Boyer joined the new company, run by his Dutchmen predecessor, Don Clark. Boyer is Grand Design’s chief financial officer.
“We are thrilled to be able to attract someone of Cam’s exceptional qualifications. His unique ability and diversified background makes Cam ideal for this position. Mr. Boyer’s strong work ethic, strategic mind set and leadership skills will help in Grand Design’s accelerated growth,” said Clark, who co-founded Grand Design last year with Bill and Ron Fenech.
Boyer served as Dutchmen’s vice president of finance under Clark and then took over leadership of Dutchmen when Clark left.
In the written announcement about his new role at Grand Design, Boyer said, “I am extremely excited to be associated with such a dynamic organization. Grand Design has assembled a ‘who’s who of the RV industry’ team. I am humbled to have been chosen for this position and look forward to helping continue their already amazing start.”
Boyer and his wife, Carrie, have six children.
To fill his role at Dutchmen, Matt Zimmerman, president of sister company Keystone, is adding oversight of Dutchmen to his duties. Aram Koltookian, former general manager of Keystone, became executive vice president of Dutchmen, according to Bob Martin, Thor president. The moves will result in additional shuffling at Keystone, Martin said Tuesday.
