Nelson Potter, 58, has resigned as president and CEO and Glenn Kummer, 67, is retiring as chairman of Fleetwood Enterprises Inc., the company announced today (Feb. 11).
On an interim basis, Thomas Pitcher, 62, a member of the Fleetwood Board of Directors, will serve as the new Fleetwood chairman and David Engelman, 63, another member of the Fleetwood board, is the new president and CEO.
Pitcher and Engelman said they are “confident that Chuck Wilkinson, executive vice president-operations; Boyd Plowman, executive vice president and CFO; Forrest Theobald, senior vice president and general counsel and other senior management members will continue to implement the strategic and operating plans and initiatives currently underway.”
Kummer, a Fleetwood senior executive for 35 years, will continue as a Fleetwood board member “to assist with the transition and other matters,” according to the company.
Potter, a Fleetwood employee for almost 30 years, also resigned from his seat on the Fleetwood board. Recently, Potter “has expressed a desire to be free to pursue other interests, but will remain available to Fleetwood on a consulting basis,” according to the company.
Pitcher is a retired senior partner of Los Angeles-based law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP.
Engelman is a director of Milwaukee-based MGIC Investment Corp. and Quaker City Bancorp, Whittier, Calif. Previously, he served as chairman, president and CEO of Union Financial Corp., Brea, Calif.
