149219645840081.jpgREV Recreation Group has restructured its leadership, with vice presidents and general managers over each segment of the product offerings instead of a president over the recreation segment.

Tim Sullivan remains the president and CEO of REV Group, with Marcus Berto serving as the executive vice president.

Under them, the company has hired three other men with plenty of experience with REV Group and its subsidiaries as vice presidents and general managers.

Pat Terveer has been hired as vice president and general manager of class A products. Terveer worked with Fleetwood for more than 20 years. After working with Fleetwood and American Coach, Terveer worked with Newmar as the director of luxury sales, beginning in 2012. Terveer now returns to REV Group in the leadership role over the class A products.

Mike Lanciotti, who served as president of Renegade RV before it was acquired by REV Group in late December 2016, has been named as the vice president and general manager of all class C products for REV Group.

Tim Gray was hired as the vice president and general manager of class B products for REV Group. Gray was the CEO and founder of Midwest Automotive Designs, which was acquired by REV Group in April.

The company’s restructuring comes about a month after Jim Jacobs resigned his position of president of REV RV Group after serving in that role since June 2015.
