MITO Corporation, distributor of market electronic goods to the RV, marine and bus original equipment manufacturers (OEM), was recognized as a finalist for the 2019 RISE Awards during the RV Indusrty Association’s (RVIA) RVX: The RV Experience, which was held in Salt Lake City, Utah in mid-March, according to a press release.

Presented by RVBusiness, MITO Corporation shared the stage in recognition with WiFiRanger for their role in bringing the Sky4 LTE Pack to the RV market. The Sky4 LTE Pack was selected to be a finalist amongst the top five most innovative products brought to the RV market in 2018 for its improved range, GPS/AI capabilities and dedication to customer data security through SafeSurf upgrades.

“In general RVX was well organized and the suppliers and OEMs had a great time networking. It was a great honor to be up on stage to receive this award.” stated Rod Hire, MITO Corporation’s vice president of product development. “While we would have liked to have brought home the top award, to have bested 70 some other products and be selected and recognized as one of the top five finalists in the industry was great in itself.”

Also recognized was MITO’s own Tim Suetkamp, RV division sales, for his selection as one of the RV Industry’s 40 Under 40.

An eight-year veteran at MITO, Suetkamp has made his mark on the RV Industry by making his sales approach about the solution versus the product and proving to be a big part of MITO’s future growth, according to the release.

“It was just an amazing experience all around at RVX, and such an honor, not only to be nominated for this award by the people I work with, but to then be selected and recognized on stage at the RVIA Awards,” noted Suetkamp. “It was definitely a great way to end the inaugural show.”

“Tim’s a great salesman and truly deserves this recognition as being an example of the future of the RV Industry and MITO,” said Dan Maloney, president of MITO. “Over the years he’s shown his drive and determination not only to close the deal, but to build relationships based on trust, which is invaluable and not easy to do in this Industry.”
