Chris Lang joined the G&G Media Group LLC team in January as a sales/event coordinator working with both of the Elkhart, Ind.-based publishing house’s magazines, RVBusiness and Woodall’s Campground Management, and an array of special events that G&G annually facilitates.
“Chris has already helped us out quite a bit since joining our staff in January,” stated Gregg Fore, chief revenue officer for G&G Media, “and we look forward to her learning the ropes not only of the publishing side of the business but in helping us coordinate the unique trade events that we host including the RV Industry Power Breakfast, the RVBusiness Top 50 Dealer Awards and the RVBusiness RV of the Year awards.”
A native of Harrison, Mich., Lang moved to Indiana in 1989 and ran a childrens’ furniture and clothing store in Goshen, Ind., before going to work as an event and marketing manager at Eby’s Pines RV Park in Bristol, Ind., where she helped manage the popular eastern Elkhart County campground with her husband, co-owner and operator Barry Lang.
Lang’s resume includes social media marketing volunteer work and trade show planning for the Indiana Manufactured Housing Association/Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (IMHA/RVIC) and its RV Lifestyle website for which she was recognized in 2011 with the state association’s “Citizen of the Year.”
She also worked closely on a volunteer basis with the Indiana Campground Owner’s Association and developed at Eby’s Pines a “Chick Camp,” a ladies-only camping weekend designed to create lasting relationships among women through an array of organized activities including painting classes, a fashion show, wine tasting and local vendor exhibits.
