Two major promotions in Thor Industries staff shuffle

One of the RV industry’s biggest companies Thor Industries has announced two major promotions as part of a reshuffle of its staff. Todd Woelfer has been promoted to the position of senior vice president and chief operating officer of the American company, while Trevor Gasper has been promoted to the role of vice president, general counsel and secretary.

Todd Woelfer has worked at Thor since 2012 serving in a number of roles during that time – in his new position he will lead several major corporate initiatives, including Thor’s innovation and data strategies, marketing, corporate sustainability and responsibility, maximising performance and synergies from existing and future acquisitions, and will lead corporate strategic initiatives.

“Todd has been our General Counsel but for years he has been instrumental in our enterprise operations, including in key areas such as our M & A activity, innovation, and a number of other key initiatives that drive our global strategy,” said Thor Industries president and CEO Bob Martin.

“From the time he started with us, his passion for our growth strategy created a broad range of responsibilities. The number of strategic mission critical items that we manage at corporate have grown tremendously since 2012, when our current management team started together, and our consolidated net revenue was a little over $2 billion, to fiscal 2021 when our net revenue was over $12 billion. When we considered our future strategic journey over the next five to 10 years, our management team realized we needed a key manager dedicated to these crucial initiatives. Todd was quickly identified as the right leader for this important role. While he understands the importance of our strategic initiatives and is often a key leader in developing them, he also understands the strategic value of Thor's highly decentralized business model, the crucial importance of our dealer relations, and our focus on the retail customer experience. In many ways, this is an announcement and acknowledgement of a role that Todd has grown into at Thor.”

Meanwhile, Trevor Gasper’s promotion to vice president, general counsel and secretary comes after he joined the company back in 2017. Before that he worked at a private firm where his practice focused on representing RV manufacturers, including Thor.

Todd Woelfer said: “Trevor has established himself as a key leader for our legal team as well as the Corporate management team. He has also served in a lead role in all major M&A transactions since joining THOR. Trevor understands the challenges of balancing the deliverables of a legal team with our business needs and is a great steward of our brand and reputation.

“THOR's legal team strives to be a value-add to our business. Under Trevor's leadership, I'm very confident in the team's continued ability to deliver value throughout the organization.”
