TAMPA, Florida - Lazydays has announced that Tony Bruce has joined its expanding sales management team, working alongside eight other managers to lead the 100-plus person sales team at the Tampa dealership.
Prior to joining Lazydays, Bruce built a successful career at La Mesa RV, holding positions of Sales Consultant, Sales Manager and most recently General Sales Manager.
“Tony joins Lazydays with a very successful track record in the RV industry,” Lazydays Vice President and General Manager Ron Fleming says. “We fully expect Tony will strengthen our sales management team as we grow and look for new opportunities.”
Bruce comes to Lazydays as the company experiences broad sales growth as a result of recent RV dealership acquisitions; the addition of new product segments to include Featherlite, the leader in towable trailers for both the auto and equestrian markets; and several partnerships to host RV tailgating lots with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Denver Broncos and University of Florida Gators.
“Joining Lazydays is a wonderful opportunity,” Bruce says. “No one in the RV industry can offer what Lazydays can, and I look forward to working with the team and welcoming customers into this one-of-a-kind facility.”
