Thor Industries Inc. appointed Christina Hennington and Laurel Hurd to its board of directors.
The board appointments were effective Sept. 1, the Elkhart-based maker of recreational vehicles said. Board member Allen Kosowsky will retire from the board.
Hennington is executive vice president and chief growth officer of Target and a member of the Target's leadership team. She oversees merchandising including product design and sourcing operations, as well as insights, strategy and innovation.
Hurd is segment president, learning and development, for Newell Brands and has more than 30 years of experience in the consumer packaged goods industry where she has served as CEO of a number of divisions of Newell Brands. In her current position, Laurel has responsibility over a $3 billion dollar group which includes the brands Sharpie, Elmer's, Graco, and Baby Jogger.
“We are very pleased to add Christina and Laurel to our board (because) both bring incredibly relevant experience and will be great additions to our board,” said Andy Graves, Thor board chairman. “As we continue to execute our board refreshment plan, our board becomes stronger.”
Graves said Kosowsky will retire from the board in October.
“Allen's contributions to our board and to Thor over the past 15 years have been significant, as he has added a strong voice that led improvements in both controls and governance,” Graves said.
