Camping World Holdings has announced new assignments of its executive leadership team, including Roger Nuttall resignation from his position as president of the company’s dealership group on Dec. 21.
Matt Wagner has been appointed senior vice president of RV inventory management, digital marketing, media services and RV dealership e-commerce. Brock Whinnery has been elevated to VP of fixed operations for the RV dealership group. Randy Rahe will serve as a VP of RV dealership operations and will assist the divisional RV presidents with process and standardization, finance and insurance, and customer and associate experience.
“Our 2019 focus will be to better serve our customers, associates and shareholders,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO. “We will also have an intense focus on dramatically reducing our retail inventory levels and aggressively reducing capital expenditures to maximize and drive free cash flow. As previously indicated, we will not hesitate to close underperforming locations, and we have recently closed four unprofitable RV dealership locations in addition to eight retail locations that we felt would not be accretive long term.”
Finally, Camping World appointed Thomas Wolfe to serve as president of Good Sam and Melvin Flanigan as CFO. As president of Good Sam, Wolfe will focus on continuing to enhance the growth and development of the consumer services and plans segment, as well as improving the overall value and customer experience for its more than two million Good Sam Club members, according to the company.
Flanigan will be supported in his role by Dale Hendrix, Karin Bell, and David McKillip, who lead the financial roles for the corporate functions and consumer services and plans segment, RV dealership segment, and retail segment. Flanigan previously served as the executive VP of finance and CFO of DTS Inc., a leader in high-definition and wireless audio, licensing branded intellectual property to entertainment technology markets worldwide.
“The organizational changes we have made and are announcing today should streamline our team and bring a new and heightened focus on inventory management, expense control, product margins, cash flow and asset deployment,” said Lemonis.
