FAIRFAX, Va. – The national RV Dealers Association (RVDA) has announced the following staff changes.
RVDA’s Director of Finance Hank Fortune has announced his retirement effective January 2024, capping off 25 years of service to RVDA. He will be succeeded in the position by Margaret Mulderry, who has extensive nonprofit experience, most recently as financial controller for the Boulder Crest Foundation that serves veterans with PTSD. Prior to that she was controller and CFO for the CIA Officer Memorial Foundation in Herndon, Va., for 10 years.
“Margaret is a valuable staff addition for RVDA, the Mike Molino RV Learning Center and the RV Assistance Corporation,” said RVDA President Phil Ingrassia. “We are thankful for Hank’s more than two decades of service to the association and the nation’s RV dealers.”
To increase RVDA’s capacity for outreach to new and existing industry stakeholders, Patrick Calpin is joining the association in a new position as Director of Partnerships. Calpin previously served in director-level roles at the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA), most recently as Director of Grassroots Advocacy.
“Patrick will be working on existing and new RVDA member benefit programs through RVDA’s RV Assistance Corporation as well as evaluating RV Learning Center fundraising programs,” said Ingrassia. “This new position will be a conduit for members and industry partners to build engagement with association benefit programs and educational resources.”
