Navistarís Osborne: Innovation is the Real Key
May 13, 2011 - By: Sherman Goldenberg, RV Business
Seated on a couch in a Holiday Rambler Trip Class A motorhome at the Elkhart County 4-H Fairgrounds in Goshen, Ind., William L. ďBillĒ Osborne
, the incoming head of Monaco RV LLC
, seemed at ease Ė considering all that was going on around him during the Holiday Rambler Recreational Vehicle Club (HRRVC) Chapter 419 annual rally and the fact that heíd only been named to the job three days prior.
The rally, which took place April 30-May 5, drew 280 member coaches. Just as important for Osborne, who on July 1 officially succeeds Monaco President Kay L. Toolson in overseeing the Coburg, Ore.-based RV builder as vice president of custom products for Navistar Inc.ís Truck Group in Warrenville, Ill., is that he got a chance to mix with scores of Monaco and Holiday Rambler coach owners in a relaxed atmosphere.
