 Harvest Hosts, a membership program offering RVers access to 5,000+ unique RV camping locations, is seeking a “chief retirement officer” to traverse the country and show others how to retire in style.

Complete with a fully furnished fifth wheel RV, as CRO, the selected candidate will draw the map on how to maximize the art of enjoying retirement – no age restriction required. The role will be tasked with hitting the open road and exploring all that North America has to offer, from breweries to farms, wineries, golf courses and thousands of small businesses.

“My own journey to becoming CEO of Harvest Hosts started with corporate burnout and a desire to travel the country,” said Joel Holland, CEO of Harvest Hosts. “Tired of desks and spreadsheets, I bought an RV and began the great American road trip, ultimately leading me to discover Harvest Hosts and my true passion. I hope to give someone else the same opportunity as our chief retirement officer.”

There are many reasons individuals may be looking to retire, whether they are reaching the age of sunsetting their career or are looking to spend more time with family and friends. Harvest Hosts said it hope the CRO can shed light on how to retire at any age and make the most of it.
