Former NFL football player Trevor Robinson has joined the Leadership in Training (LIT) program at Lippert Components. Robinson joins the LCI team at Plant 45 in Goshen, Ind., where he will prepare for an operational management role within the company.
Robinson was born and raised in Nebraska, and later attended the University of Notre Dame where he studied business management and was a member of the school’s football team. For the last five years, Robinson played professional football for the Cincinnati Bengals, the San Diego Chargers, and, most recently, the Atlanta Falcons.
“I’m excited about a career at LCI because I wanted to be part of a team that aligns with my priorities and is committed to winning,” said Robinson. “I am very impressed with LCI’s success in the RV industry and believe the company’s current leadership and dedication to leadership training is a very positive and appealing aspect.”
Lippert’s LIT program, initiated in 1994 by CEO Jason Lippert and his team, aims to build long-term management teams within the company. The program focuses on bringing college-educated individuals from all areas of the country and outside the business into the RV industry to bring diversity to an industry that typically recruits only regionally.
“Our LIT program is a unique facet of our business. Without proper training and introduction to our operations, LCI would not be as successful,” said Jason Lippert. “Our front-line leaders are a critical component to our success, and we’re very excited to bring Trevor into the fold and know he will make an immediate impact.”
The curriculum of the program is designed to provide trainees with a roadmap that introduces them to LCI’s unique culture, defined by its core values, while giving them exposure to the product-building process during their time spent in the “trenches” of the company’s infrastructure.
In turn, the program allows LCI to assess future management, and determine where their skillsets would be best utilized, resulting in a high-performance workforce.
Since its inception over two decades ago, LCI’s LIT program has cultivated a few hundred talented individuals within Lippert’s leadership teams.
