THOR Board Member to Retire

THOR Industries, Inc. announced last week that Wilson Jones will retire from its board of directors, effective Dec. 15

Jones joined THOR’s board of directors in 2014, where he provided consistent and able counsel, the company said in an Oct. 16 press release. Most recently, he served as chairman of the company’s Compensation & Development Committee and as a member of the Environmental, Social, Governance & Nomination Committee.

Jones spent much of his career at Oshkosh Corporation, a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of specialty vehicles and vehicle bodies. He joined Oshkosh in 2005 and held senior leadership positions in the Fire & Emergency segment and Access Equipment segment before being named president and CEO in January 2016. Jones retired as CEO and board member of Oshkosh Corporation in April 2021.

“THOR Industries has been very fortunate to have Wilson serve on our board for the last nine years,” said Andy Graves, board chairman. “All of us who have worked with Wilson on THOR’s board of directors have benefited from his leadership and his commitment to the company. His extensive knowledge of the specialty vehicles industry, people-first approach, and financial and strategic management expertise helped guide THOR’s incredible performance. We extend our gratitude and best wishes to Wilson upon his retirement.”

Bob Martin, THOR’s CEO, said, “Wilson has played an influential role on our board of directors for nine years, helping guide our company through periods of growth unparalleled in the industry. Wilson’s leadership and collaboration on the board will be greatly missed and we are deeply grateful for the significant contributions he has made.”

THOR’s board of directors has engaged a search firm to identify and retain a suitable replacement for Jones and expects to name a replacement during the first quarter of 2024.
