About Phil Cornelius
Phil Cornelius, a recognizable figure in the RV industry joined Newell Coach Corporation on January 1, 2012. "The opportunity to join Newell Coach is exciting to say the least," states Phil Cornelius. "Newell has long been a respected icon within the RV industry, capturing a niche market among discriminating luxury motor coach enthusiasts. I'm grateful for the opportunity to be part of this winning team!"
Phil began his career in 1987 with Texas based Foretravel, Inc., a leading high end class A motor home manufacturer at that time. In 1994, after achieving Master Sales Guild status with Foretravel, he accepted a sales position with Oregon based Marathon Coach, Inc., the world's largest luxury Prevost bus conversion company. After three years, Phil became national sales leader at Marathon Coach, Inc., demonstrating an ability to effectively serve his clients while also acting in the company's best interest. Selling over 500 luxury coaches totaling over $300,000,000 was an unprecedented and unmatched accomplishment during his tenure at Marathon Coach, Inc. allowing Phil to retain position of cumulative sales leader from 1998 - 2011.
While other segments of the luxury coach industry struggle, Newel's ability to adapt to changing market conditions, quickly incorporate innovative enhancements, and utilize a nationwide service network allows Newell Coach to meet the demands of their customers while increasing market share.
Phil enjoys fishing, hunting and spending time with his family when not working with clients. Phil and his family travel together and display Newell products in various regions of the United Sates.
Newell Coach Corporation, located in Miami, Oklahoma, manufactures, sells and services Newell luxury motorcoaches.
The Blade Legacy
Since 1979, Newell Coach has been owned and operated by Karl and Alice Blade. Their son-in-law Pat Dwyer, and daughter Becky Dwyer, are also involved in the company's daily operations.
Newell Coach was founded in 1967 by L.K. Newell. From the beginning, the company designed and created its own coach chassis. This was because no pre-made chassis or bus shell could provide the quality Newell insisted upon for his motorcoaches. A commitment to quality and innovation remains a cornerstone of the company to this day.
Newell Coach continues to construct the coach chassis and body in-house, using only the highest-quality materials. As a result, Newell offers the most sophisticated and refined coach of its type and the widest range of opportunities for customization available in a luxury motorhome.
Newell sells directly to the customer rather than through dealers. This ensures that the Newell staff understands each customer's unique needs and preferences. In addition, Newell manages and coordinates customer service and support wherever and whenever it's needed-Newell's Customer Support Hotline is available 24/7.
With a staff of approximately 200 experienced and highly skilled engineers, designers, craftsmen and sales people, Newell Coach is a major employer in its community. The fact that more than 36 seasoned veterans have worked for the company for over 20 years is a testament to its commitment to provide employees with a great place to work. It also ensures that a depth of knowledge and skill goes into the manufacturing of each coach.
