Lippert’s Leadership Living the RV Lifestyle
Elkhart, Ind. — Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI®) is well known for its innovative RV products and mobile lifestyle enhancement solutions, but what may not have been previously recognized is how loyal its leaders are to living the lifestyle they live and breathe every day at LCI. In early October, 20 of LCI’s senior leaders traveled in RVs to the Petoskey RV Resort in northern Michigan for their annual strategy meeting. Not only do they want to encourage others to experience the RVing lifestyle through their leadership efforts at LCI, but they also want to illustrate that they, too, are living the lifestyle they advocate for. Jason Lippert, LCI CEO, commented, “Having strategic planning meetings while camping is typical of the ways in which we try to drive innovation that make LCI the leader in RV and mobile lifestyle enhancement solutions.”
Lippert continued, “It’s extremely important to us to practice what we preach at LCI, so we decided to set an example to encourage others to get involved in the RV and camping culture. Our goal is to get back to the basics and continuously experience RVing first hand to have an understanding of what is needed for a successful camping trip; because, ultimately, we want to supply consumers with the best RV products and solutions to make memories that will last a lifetime.”
Further, beyond the leadership camping trip, Jason Lippert consistently encourages all LCI team members to get out and experience the RV lifestyle for themselves. “The outcome of many LCI team members being familiar with the RV lifestyle would lead to better ideas, better decisions, and better products overall,” he continued. “We are especially driving this mentality down to our sales and engineering team members for this very reason. Not only do we want them to get involved because this is the type of work they do, but we encourage it simply because RV camping is truly enjoyable. We urge everyone to experience the benefits of RV camping – because we know if they love it, they’ll make an effort to help others love it just as much. That alone will help us really determine what our consumers want as we’re driving a lot of the supply chains for the RV industry.”
