Meet Our Team
BRYAN TILLETT, CEO
Bryan has worked in the RV industry for more than 37 years. He was hired by Vaughn Peterson in 1980 as a welder for Peterson Industries, Inc., manufacturer of Excel recreational vehicles. As Peterson Industries grew, he became a line supervisor, then was promoted to Director of Purchasing for the company. In 1989, Bryan became part owner of Peterson Industries, along with Vaughn and Mike Nebel.
In 1996, Bryan was promoted to President where he presided until the great recession that began in 2008 finally forced Peterson Industries to close their doors in early 2015.
Bryan has been blessed to have a terrific wife, Deb to whom he has been married for 43 years. Together, they have 3 daughters who grew up enjoying the RV lifestyle, and 6 grandchildren (so far). Pulling an Excel 5th wheel or travel trailer around the United States summer after summer, Bryan, Deb, and their girls logged more then 100,000 miles, seeing so much of what this great country has to offer.
Bryan was hired by owner & CEO, Phil Brokenicky in April 2015 as Director of Operations. In December 2016, Phil passed away after a brief but courageous battle with cancer, but not before naming Bryan CEO.
“One can only appreciate the vision Phil brought to New Horizons in making our fifth-wheels the finest available. He spared no expense and accepted nothing short of flawless effort,” says Bryan. “I personally admired Phil for his faith, character, family values, and concern for always doing the right thing. Being a small family-owned RV manufacturer in Kansas has unique challenges, but the opportunity exists here to make New Horizons more desirable to those buyers who truly want the finest fifth-wheel available at an affordable price. I look forward to carrying on Phil’s legacy.”
Bryan’s hobbies are aviation, having logged over 3,300 hours in multiple aircraft, and RVing.
