“Over the past six years, Derek has been the company’s business development manager and has shown a tremendous ability to grow our dealer network, introduce our proprietary brand of RV parts and accessories, called RV Traveler’s Choice, and was equally an integral part in launching our first exclusive branded travel trailer, Northern Spirit,” Don Sneyd, chairman of the network’s board of directors, says.

Sneyd says Paterson will continue to build the RV Care dealer network, implement multiple brand awareness strategies, strengthen the group’s premiere partner programs and continue to seek out new RV industry alliances.

“His 25-plus years in the retail training sector have proven to be a valuable asset for our company and for our RV Care Dealer Associate stores,” Sneyd says.

The RV Care Network is Canada’s largest RV dealer group with 74 dealerships across the country and a partner alliance with Priority RV Network in the U.S., representing another 124 dealer locations.
