RV Care Network Chairman Steps Down After 17 Years

Mon Jul 24, 2017

Bill Redmond of Bucars RV Centre in Balzac, Alberta, stepped down from the position of Chairman of RV Care Network Ltd. earlier this month. After 17 years as a member of the board of directors and Chairman of the organization, Redmond leaves behind years of leadership and service.

As a founding member of RV Care back in 2000, Redmond played a key role in the development of the new concept of an RV dealer service network and buying group. Over the years he led the board, shareholders, members, partner suppliers and staff to become Canada’s largest dealer network with more than 60 locations across Canada. The founding principle of providing service for traveling RV Care customers remains key, while the RV Care brand, along with RV Traveler’s Choice and RV Care Approved, continue to grow throughout the Canadian RV industry.

Taking over as the new Chairman of RV Care’s board of directors is Don Sneyd of Ruston RV Centre in Burlington, Ontario. The board met last week in Toronto when Sneyd said "We have a very full agenda with a lot of exciting initiatives to continue building and new opportunities to pursue.”

Other members of the board of directors include: Pierre Belanger, Henry Boer, Kelly Lardner, Don Main, Earl Manning and Jeff Redmond.

RV Care is Canada’s largest network of top independent RV dealers, with 61 locations from Vancouver Island to St John’s, Newfoundland. For more information about RV Care visit www.rvcare.ca or contact info@rvcare.ca
