“It was a real coup to have Trent Tiffin see the value in joining our team here at Storyteller,” said Storyteller CEO Jeffrey Hunter. “I have had the privilege of knowing him for a number of years now, and of course I, like so many others, have always been aware of his stellar reputation in our industry. He shares our values of prioritizing the voice of the customer and doing everything in our power to create exceptional experiences for our growing community. It's just in his blood.”
“While I have always been super impressed by Trent's considerable accomplishments at such a young age, I am even more excited about what we will be able to dream up and achieve together to inspire entirely new audiences and continue to revolutionize our industry with his leadership as EVP and GM of Global X."

When asked what his primary goal would be as he assumes the role of General Manager/EVP, Trent said his goal is simple, “We are going to design and build the best motorhomes available anywhere at any price , take better care of our customers than anyone else ever has, and make GXV the best place to work for all of its team members.”
“It is a great honor to be trusted by Jeffery Hunter, Lee Conn, and Andrew Cooley for believing I can lead this team to do great things for Storyteller Overland and GXV,” Trent said. “I’m excited to grow this side of our business and to bring an amazing product to one of the best dealer groups in the country. I’m also excited to see new customers and build dreams for them at the best level of quality and service we can provide for the end user.”
