One of the original founders of Thor Motocross, Bob Maynard is retiring after 28 years of employment with the company to pursue other interests, stated a company press release.
“It’s been an exciting 28 years, including 15 years as CEO of Thor,” Maynard said. “During that time, I’ve seen the brand become well known worldwide and accepted as the riders’ favorite in many foreign countries as well as in the United States.”
Maynard’s hard work and success for Thor hasn’t gone unnoticed, says Fred Fox, CEO of LeMans Corp.
“Bob has been the passionate leader of Thor’s successful growth for many years,” he said in the release. “We appreciate Bob’s many years of dedicated service and all of his efforts to make the Thor brand recognized as the leader in motocross gear. We wish him well.”
Maynard plans to present the new 2009 Thor line at the Parts Unlimited NVP, attend a Thor ride in Colorado in September and the INTERMOT show in Cologne, Germany.
