Delavan Holdings’ subsidiaries include Kunes Auto & RV Group, Lake Lawn Resort, Ignition Dealer Services, Geneva10 Fulfillment and Camp Timber-lee.

“In the Midwest, the Kunes name is synonymous with generosity,” said Haave. “I’m delighted to become part of an organization with such a clear commitment to giving back.”

Before joining Delavan Holdings, Haave held various leadership roles at Milwaukee-based Fortune 150 company Kohls spanning 25 years. Most recently, he was the vice president of human resources supporting more than 6,000 associates across the country.

“Dan brings a wealth of experience to this new role,” said Scott Kunes, chief operating officer at Kunes Auto Group. “We’re fortunate to have his knowledge and guidance for Delavan Holdings, through which he will steer our family of businesses forward.”
Founded in 1996 in Delavan, Wisconsin, Kunes Auto Group has since grown to over 40 locations spanning across the Midwest. Previously called Kunes Country, Kunes Auto Group lives up to its motto –– Faith, Family, and Giving Back –– by employing over 1,800 people and donating 10% of its yearly net profits to local charities, the company said.
