Fleetwood Enterprises Inc. announced today (March 31) that Roger L. Howsmon, formerly executive vice president of the Housing Group, is no longer with the company.
The move comes just three weeks after the Riverside, Calif., builder announced that President and CEO Ed Caudill would be replaced by Elden Smith, a former Fleetwood executive who previously oversaw the company’s RV Group.
The shift in top-level management is reflective of the company’s recent troubles. Prior to the Smith announcement, Fleetwood reported a net loss of $54.7 million for its fiscal third quarter.
According to a press release, Fleetwood will immediately begin a search for Howsmon’s replacement and anticipates that the position will be filled within a matter of weeks.
