RVIA has welcomed several new staff members over the past six months throughout multiple departments as a continued reorganization initiative.
The membership department has expanded with the addition of research analyst Matthew Hummel, and Sarah Neely, senior manager of communications and marketing.
To help provide additional support, the administrative staff also introduced several other members to their team: administrative assistant Calvin Grant, Jr., administrative assistant, government affairs administrative assistant Marcy Marsh, and Beverly Whitley, events administrative assistant.
RVIA recently welcomed Wayne Atkins as the director of finance in late 2016 and Susan Everhart in early 2017 as the payroll and HR specialist. Samantha Rocci was brought on late last year as a government affairs analyst and Tammy Marko joined RVIA as the new IT director in late 2016. This month, the standards team also gained inspector Oliver Keultjes.
RVIA also plans on bringing in a membership specialist, government affairs manager, events director, and an attorney within the next couple of months.
Effective April 1, John Proteau will be promoted from senior inspector to director of inspection services where he will continue to provide key insight in the development of safety-related code changes.
