As Keystone RV enters the new decade, it is strategically realigning its sales organization to intensify focus on its unique ability to deliver enterprise-wide value for dealers and customers.
“There is no question that industry and consumers are evolving,” Keystone RV President and CEO Jeff Runels said. “There are opportunities and challenges that simply didn’t exist five years ago. Keystone’s depth and breadth provide us with the ability to super-serve our dealer partners and owners in a way that our smaller competitors simply cannot. Today, we’re putting a structure in place that will drive growth for the next twenty-five years and beyond.”
Josh Miller, Keystone RV’s new vice president of sales said the change reduces barriers and empowers product managers to move quickly and decisively. “Without question, we have the best product development talent in the industry. From the beginning, the company’s philosophy from has been to provide a great deal of autonomy to the team members that are closest to the customer. With this move, I believe we are strengthening our product managers’ ability to deliver exceptional products.”
