Lippert promotes executives

Lippert Components announced the promotions of Jeff Wysong to vice president of sales and Mike Oathout to director of sales for the company’s emerging marine segment.

As LCI’s marine segment grows, the company said it is establishing key leadership roles to further align with the needs of the that market.

Through these appointments, Lippert plans to streamline its points of contact for customers while creating a pipeline that will bring the company’s marine products to market.

“My entire business career has always been driven by building relationships with our customers and partners,” said Wysong in a statement. “I am excited to step into this new leadership role to further increase the resources LCI provides into the marine marketplace.”

Oathout came to LCI through the Taylor Made acquisition in January 2018. He has been with Taylor Made for 30 years and has overseen this critical role for 18 of those years.

“I’m excited to begin this new venture, supporting a larger portion of our business model while continuing to support our marine fabric and glazing systems,” Oathout said. “I’m most excited about the potential of our marine furniture capabilities as we continue to supply the growing demand within the marine market.”

“As we gain momentum in the marine market, it was appropriate to align dedicated senior leadership positions with our efforts,” said LCI chief sales officer Andy Murray. “With the recent acquisition of Taylor Made, we have a very strong team supporting the marine industry, and are now looking to equip that team with a larger arsenal of products, while at the same time making our customers’ lives easier by allowing them access to more products from a single point of contact.”
