AJ Pettis, Assistant Service Manager of Ron Hoover RV in Katy, was named to Recreational Vehicle Industry Association’s (RVIA) 40 Under 40 during the RVX Expo in Salt Lake City, Utah, in March.

According to Liz Crawford RVIA’s Senior Vice President of Trade Shows and Events “…the goal of the recognition was not simply to create a one-time ceremony, but to engage the next generation of innovators in the RV industry and to build on the initiative each year. Anyone who demonstrated a commitment to our amazing industry at any level within their organization was eligible to be recognized for this honor…”

“Each of these remarkable young men and women exemplify leadership and inspire others through their efforts,” said Liz Crawford. “Having such and amazing group of talent creating a real difference in their organizations means the future is very bright for our growing industry.”

AJ was hired by Tony Clark, Vice President of Operations for Ron Hoover RV, about eight years ago and commented as follows “…AJ is an hard worker who has risen through the ranks from porter, to lot manager, to parts advisor, to service writer, and to his present position as assistant service manager.” “He has studied on his own to become certified by RVDA as a service manager and we congratulate him on his success.”

AJ is married and has two daughters and as a reward for this recognition, Ron Hoover RV provided AJ and his family a motorhome to drive to Salt Lake City and spend extra time vacationing in the State of Utah.

TRVA salutes AJ Pettis and looks forward to hearing more about his future successes in the RV industry.
