Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI®) has appointed a Senior Advisor for Business Development to drive growth within the European caravan market through strategic acquisitions.
The Senior Advisor is Joerg Reithmeier who was most recently on the Executive Board for the Erwin Hymer Group, Europe’s largest caravan manufacturer. He brings 8 years of experience in the European caravan industry and an additional 10 years in the automotive Industry.
Reithmeier will work closely with LCI RV Europe CEO Michele Checcucci to strengthen LCI’s product offerings within the European RV market and help drive LCI’s overall strategy in Europe forward.
“Joerg will add tremendous value to our ability to work efficiently and successfully with our European partners,” said Jason Lippert, LCI’s CEO.
“Germany produces more RVs than any other country in the European market, and Joerg brings us immediate expertise that will help us better understand our German OEM customers as well as the rest of the European
caravan manufacturing community so we can be the best supplier possible. Our goal is to expand our European footprint and a necessary part of this process is having leadership stationed in Germany, talking to our German customers every day,” Jason Lippert added.
Commenting on his new role, Joerg Reithmeier said: “I am very pleased to support the LCI Europe team. Our cooperation shows how committed LCI is to the European RV market. My immediate goal is to continue to build LCI’s
profile in Europe of competency, commitment, and outstanding technical solutions.”
“I feel that as we continue to communicate LCI’s unique culture of treating others like family, we will continue to build trust among our OEM customers and potential acquisitions that there is no better company to partner with than LCI.”
“I am especially excited to support new acquisitions by the LCI family. Working alongside LCI’s current team, and being as focused on growth as LCI now is, there is no doubt that LCI can be a market leader in Germany and the rest of the European RV market,” added Reithmeier.
