Jayco Inc., a subsidiary of Thor Industries Inc., recognized several dealers this week at its Dealer Homecoming event at the Venetian Hotel & Sands Expo Convention Center in Las Vegas for their sales achievements as well as those celebrating milestone anniversaries.
“We’re not only celebrating those who will be recognized from the stage, but each and every one of you as you all play an important role in our success,” said Ashley Lehman, Jayco’s director of marketing who emceed the event. “We know that Jayco wouldn’t be what it is today without your continued support through all the hills and valleys. You hold us accountable. You motivate us. You give us your sound advice, your dedication, your hard work, and your partnership. You make us a better company and for that we are grateful and truly value all you do for us. Everyone here is a winner in our minds.”
