Randy Hopper - Vexus Boats - Spearheading Industry Innovation

28 minutes

Randy Hopper is the CEO of Vexus Boats, which manufactures premium fiberglass and aluminum bass boats in Flippin, Arkansas. Vexus opened the doors to its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in August 2017. Less than a year later, they were already shipping aluminum boats to a newly-created network of Vexus bass boat dealers.

Prior to his current role with Vexus, Randy served a number of leadership positions at Ranger Boats. He joined the company during its startup days in 1968 and went on to serve as plant manager, VP Manufacturing, VP Engineering, and, finally, CEO.

In this episode, Randy explains the innovations that Vexus has brought to the bass boat industry, how the company entered the space as a startup with a 50-year history, and potential disruptions to the industry in the near future.
