Motorhome maker Country Coach Inc., Junction City, Ore., has announced the addition of industry veteran Jim Howard as vice president of sales.
Howard will market the diesel-pusher lines produced by the National RV Holdings Inc. subsidiary, as well as a new gas line to be launched later in the year.
A co-founder of Destinations RV, an Oregon dealership, Howard has ample experience in handling Country Coach brands at the retail level, according to a Country Coach release.
Most recently, Howard was the Florida regional sales manager for Country Coach’s sister company, National RV, Perris, Calif.

A resident of Eugene, Oregon since the early ’70s, Howard holds a Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Oregon.
