Recreational vehicle maker Coachmen Industries Inc. said Tuesday (Dec. 12) it named Rick Bedell as president of Consolidated Building Industries for the company’s housing and building group.
Bedell previously served as president of Miller Building Systems Inc., which was sold by Elkhart, Ind.-based Coachmen in 2006. His appointment is effective Jan. 1.
The company also promoted Del Herr to executive vice president for operations of the housing and building group. Herr previously was the general manager of All American Homes of Iowa. His promotion is effective immediately.
In addition, Coachmen named Dave Kurth vice president of field operations and special projects for the housing and building group.
The moves represent the latest changes since Chairman and CEO Claire Skinner announced her early retirement in late August. Richard Lavers, formerly CFO, was named CEO for the company while William P. Johnson was elected non-executive chairman and Colleen Zuhl was named CFO.
