Elkhart, Ind. — Lippert Components, Inc. (Lippert™) announces today that Marc Grimes has been promoted to Senior Vice President of Product Strategy. In his new role, he will provide support to Lippert’s Product Managers and focus on product positioning and updates, while also continuing to drive value into the customer experience.
