Default Jim Hammil leaving Roadtrek/Hymer?

Anyone else heard this rumor? They up and cancelled a bunch of marketing events for 2019 as well last week.

I guess the deal with Thor is now closed and they are running the show now.

I heard they fired him, but so far no official word.

Certainly not surprising. The surprising part is that he made it through the previous two acquisitions.

I believe the acquisition by Thor is not yet complete.

According to RV Business they are still operating legally as Erwin Hymer Group North America Inc. And StreetInsider.com lists the the deal as still pending, although Thor's board has already approved the acquisition, so presumably it is still awaiting regulatory and legal resolution.

Jim Hammill did post a statement on the Erwin Hymer website that he would still be in charge post acquisition:

I guess we'll see how that really holds up under Thor.

I also heard he was let go. Proof is at the Tampa Super show. No Jim.

Canadian TV news reports Jim was let go. Sadly his leadership resulted in many employees losing their jobs too. They also reported that the Thor purchase was not yet finalized. Let's hope that great deal didn't fall through.

Looks like there is also a big layoff going on, even though the deal isn't closed yet.

A Chevy Roadtrek group on Facebook also is saying Hammill is gone.


Got beat by one minute!

Default Attorney General complaint filings should continue

Mr. Jim Hammill is named in the referenced Attorney General evidence file. His departure doesn't change the status of owner complaint filings, attorney general investigations or the legislative proposals. You should file if you have a Roadtrek, Hymer or Carado with the Microgreen Inverter/Charger and haven't already filed a complaint with your Attorney General.
