Lippert Components promoted Ryan Smith to group president of its North American OEM business. Smith, who has been with Lippert since 2008, was previously senior vice president of sales and operations.
In his new role, he will be responsible for overseeing North American OEM business in the RV, marine and adjacent segments, which accounted for $2 billion in sales during the last year.
“I look forward to continuing our operational growth while providing additional speed through advanced manufacturing improvements, processes and automation, all while providing exceptional customer service,” Smith said in a statement.
“As Lippert drives toward $3 billion in sales, we need to continue to evolve our structure, as we have frequently done over these years of exciting growth,” president and CEO Jason Lippert said. “Ryan is an excellent representation of our core values and sets the tone for our culture with our teams, and he will lead our OEM manufacturing teams through this next period where the RV, marine, and adjacent markets may see tremendous growth due to the record demand for these products.”
