Today, Jayco Inc. announced Derald Bontrager, president and CEO of Jayco and its divisions, will be stepping back into managing the day-to-day operations with the departure of Matt Thompson from his position as the company’s Chief Operating Officer.

Bontrager continued, “We appreciate all that Matt did for Jayco and its divisions throughout his time with the company and we wish him well in his future endeavors. We look forward to continuing to strengthen our relationships that we have built over our more than 50 years in business with both our dealer partners and retail customers.”
