Feb. 4 marked a big milestone for PPL Motor Homes President Diana LeBlanc. The Houston native and radio personality who is known as “RV Nana” celebrated her 40th anniversary with the company, according to company officials.
“What a fun and exciting rollercoaster it has been,” noted LeBlanc. “I started as a receptionist in 1980 when the company had only four employees. From our origins in the RV rental business, we have grown to become the largest RV consignment dealership in the country and I feel so fortunate to have been a part of this great team.”
LeBlanc, who took the helm as PPL President in 2010, now has over 140 team members among three locations in Houston, Cleburne, and New Braunfels, Texas. An active mother and grandmother, LeBlanc loves the RV lifestyle and served as president of the Texas RV Association from 2011 to 2013. LeBlanc now currently serves on the board of the Texas Campground Owners Association.
In addition to overseeing day-to-day operations at all three PPL locations, LeBlanc writes a bi-monthly newsletter for RV enthusiasts, hosts a monthly customer appreciation event for RVers (Tuesday Tips with RV Nana) and is the founding sponsor and regular guest on the nationally-syndicated radio show “The RV Show USA” with Alan Warren.
“Over the past 40 years, I’ve met some wonderful people” LeBlanc continued. “The RV industry is truly one big family and I love being a part of it. A big thank you to all my friends and family who have been there for me through the years.”
