As Grand Design RV expands, the manufacturer has appointed team members to leadership positions.
As a result of the changes, the manufacturer has a new general manager, two leaders in new product manager positions and a new executive account manager.
Grand Design President Don Clark said, “Grand Design has experienced incredible growth over our more than 10 years in existence. To help support this growth, we have made some significant
changes and additions in our organizational structure.”
The changes begin with Tony Lizzi’s promotion to general manager of the Imagine, Reflection, Seranova and Transcend brands. Lizzi was previously the Reflection product manager. He has been with Grand Design for a decade.
Peter Kinden, who had been the GM over Imagine, Reflection and Transcend, is the new executive account manager. Kinden will lead large dealer groups and work with Grand Design’s sales team on inventory management and dealer relationships.
Rob Groover will remain the general manager of Influence, Momentum and Solitude.
Among product managers, Matt Eppers is the new Transcend product manager. Eppers holds over seven years of industry experience, most recently as the product manager for Coachmen RV’s Catalina travel trailers.
Ken Conlee, who had been the Transcend product manager, is moving to become the Reflection product manager. Conlee has been at Grand Design for one year and has nearly eight years of industry experience.
Other product managers will remain in place—Chase Booth with Momentum, Logan McBride with Solitude and Eric Landis with Imagine.
Grand Design created two new positions as well.
Danie Antonelli joined the Grand Design team as the vice president of marketing. Brand, dealer, public relations and corporate communications teams will report to Antonelli. Before joining Grand Design, she led Whirlpool Corp.’s Whirlpool, Maytag, KitchenAid and Amana brands’ branding and shopper marketing.
In the new sales development manager role, Jeff Muffoletto will work with the sales, product and marketing teams to train and provide content to dealer partners.
“This rounds out our talent base,” Clark said, “and sets us up for sustained growth into the future.”
