Bob Maynard Announces Retirement from Thor

Bob Maynard, one of the original founders and a 28 year employee with Thor Motocross, has announced that he is retiring this fall to pursue other interests. Bob commented, “It’s been an exciting 28 years, including 15 as CEO of Thor. During that time, I’ve seen the brand become well known world wide and accepted as the leader in many foreign countries as well as the US. I plan to attend the Parts Unlimited NVP to present the new 2009 Thor line; will be on the Thor ride in Colorado in September; and will attend the Intermot Show in
Cologne, Germany.”

“Bob has been the passionate leader of Thor’s successful growth for many years” stated Fred Fox, CEO of LeMans Corporation; parent of Thor. Fox continued, “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.”

Bob was instrumental in the development of countless products and principles that fueled Thor’s growth from it’s early days as Hallman Racing, into the powerhouse brand that’s known the world over today.
