Elkhart, Ind. — Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI®) announces today that it entered into a contract with Joerg Reithmeier to act as LCI’s Senior Advisor for Business Development.

“Joerg will add tremendous value to our ability to work efficiently and successfully with our European partners,” stated Jason Lippert, LCI’s CEO. Continued Lippert, “Germany produces more RVs than any other country in the European market, and Joerg brings us immediate expertise that will help us better understand our German OEM customers as well as the rest of the European caravan manufacturing community so we can be the best supplier possible. Our goal is to expand our European footprint and a necessary part of this process is having leadership stationed in Germany, talking to our German customers every day.”

My immediate goal is to continue to build LCI’s profile in Europe of competency, commitment, and outstanding technical solutions. I feel that as we continue to communicate LCI’s unique culture of treating others like family, we will continue to build trust among our OEM customers and potential acquisitions that there is no better company to partner with than LCI. I am especially excited to support new acquisitions by the LCI family. Working alongside LCI’s current team, and being as focused on growth as LCI now is, there is no doubt that LCI can be a market leader in Germany and the rest of the European RV market.”
