Chris Throgmartin, president of Throgmartin Holdings, has announced he is retiring.

“After careful consideration and discussing this with my wife, Ingrid, kids Lindy and Natalia, as well as our staff, we all felt this was a great time to step back and allow our staff members to take the reins of all of our companies,” said Throgmartin. “The timing we felt was perfect as we now have an amazing staff in place that has resulted in large enhancements to our product and service lines.”

Throgmartin has been recognized as a constant innovator in the RV industry. His many innovations and aftermarket product designs have changed the face in certain aftermarket parts sectors within the RV industry, according to the company. His ongoing research and testing programs to enhance quality in products in addition to his consulting to manufacturers has led to cutting edge products and enhancements to other product lines produced by the Throgmartin family of companies as well as outside corporations.

“I am surely not riding off into the sunset never to be heard from again,” said Throgmartin. “I will still be in the office one day a week, and I will be representing our companies at all of the rallies we participate in. I have had many RV owner associations depend on my involvement and I will continue to perform seminars and support them well into the future. I like to tell people I am only retiring from the day to day work but staying close to the RVers.”

The company indicated Throgmartin will begin acting in a consulting role to all Throgmartin family companies, including Throgmartin Holdings, Talin Mfg., Talin RV and Stone Vos Awnings. He will also continue to provide support in new product designs, marketing and public relations.

“My work with RV owners will never end. I will always be there for the many customers and owners as a resource for them,” said Throgmartin. “I will continue to further develop and support our educational programs for RVers as well. That part of my job has always been one of my favorite parts of my career. I will fill out my spare hours now pursing my passions – flying aircraft, riding horses and doing woodworking.”

Throgmartin’s retirement will be effective Jan. 1. At that time the companies will reorganize, and staff will assume many of his daily duties.
