Asheville, NC – May 8, 2013 – Jason Campbell, an expert in designing and installing solar energy systems for commercial applications, has joined North American Roofing to lead the Solar Energy Services Group, the company announced today.
Campbell’s eight years of technical energy experience in the field of renewable energy and energy efficiency is extensive, including the management of 150 solar and wind projects for an architectural and environmental firm in Arizona, renewable energy system design, permitting and purchasing, and development and management of large to medium scale LEED projects for government and major corporations. He is certified by the National Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NBCEP) and holds a Bachelors of Science-Environmental Science with emphasis on Appropriate Technology from Humboldt State University, Arcata, CA.
By working directly with national manufacturers of high caliber solar arrays and components, the company’s Solar Energy Services Group “gives developers and engineers a partner in creating, designing, installing and performing preventative maintenance through our SolarGuard program on solar projects anywhere in the U.S.,” according to Campbell.
As the former Solar Sales Manager with LightWave Solar Electric in Nashville, and the Business Development Manager with EnerNOC in Boston, Jason will be working to build a strong sales team with the goal to position North American Roofing as one of the nation’s largest energy integration companies. “North American Roofing is now positioned to not only be the commercial roofer of choice, but we can also help with permitting, purchasing, rebates, utility interconnection, all the components in building a truly integrated solar system,” he said.
In addition to new commercial roof installation, North American Roofing also offers retrofitting expertise and recommendations when it comes to retrofitting or replacing existing roofs. “From an engineering standpoint, it is absolutely critical that leaks or weight concerns be addressed on existing roof systems before anything is installed,” Campbell said.
We’d like to announce the hire and promotion of several employees (owners!) here at North American Roofing. So, without further ado…
Jason Campbell joins North American Roofing this week as our new Energy Services Manager. As the former Solar Sales Manager with LightWave Solar Electric and the Business Development Manager with EnerNOC in Boston, Jason comes to us with eight years of experience in the solar industry. He will work closely with our Sales team to introduce new options to our clients.
Regina Tunney and Aaron Corbin join us as new Estimators. Regina has over 15 years of experience in construction estimating and project management and was most recently with a FLS Energy in Asheville. Prior to joining NAR, Aaron was a Project Manager with KHS&S where he oversaw several large commercial construction projects.
Julie Pratt is our new Customer Satisfaction Manager. Julie’s priority will be to ensure that our customers’ needs are met and that their issues are resolved. With her expertise and knowledge of operations and Client Relationship Management, Julie is the perfect person to follow up with each customer and make sure they are satisfied with our services.
Robert Johnson has moved to the new role of Technical Sales Specialist. In this role, Robert will partner with the Sales team to determine the most appropriate roofing system to meet the client’s needs from a technical standpoint.
Patricia Lee has accepted the new position of Corporate Customer Service Coordinator for our Service Department. She will assist in managing the communications for our service accounts with national clients.
Ashley Taylor will be our new Customer Service Representative for the Service department.
Congratulations to those promoted and welcome to Regina, Aaron and Jason.
Indianapolis, IN May 2, 2013 – When North American Roofing, one of the largest commercial and industrial roofing companies in the United States, exhibits at the annual BOMA Indianapolis Trade Show next week, it will be a homecoming of sorts.
North American Roofing, which has been in continuous operation since 1979 and has installed and serviced more than 950 million square feet of roofing on more than 19,500 facilities across the country, had its humble beginnings in the Indianapolis area.
Founder Carl Verble located to Indianapolis after college. After a stint with RCA, he made a career change that began in residential construction, which led to commercial strip centers. On projects in Florida he began experimenting with materials other than asphalt and gravel – then the materials of choice – due to premature cracking from the extreme heat. With EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) liners, Carl found the roof seams could go together more easily and the material was well-suited for roof repairs. Plus, this was the 1970s, when oil embargoes tightened gasoline supplies and refineries changed formulations for asphalt. Though Carlisle was already installing EPDM in the mid-70s, it was under Carl’s guidance and experience that convinced Firestone (now Firestone Building Products) to join in the EPDM business.
“The early experimental work with EPDM and the partnership with Firestone grew the business quickly,” Brian Verble, third generation CEO of the company said. “They began roofing education through the International Council of Shopping Centers and that led them to nationwide expansion.”
Today, North American Roofing and Firestone Building Products continue their successful generations-long relationship, with North American Roofing most recently honored with the prestigious Firestone Building Product’s Master Contractor Award, the third year in a row. Only 100 contractors qualified and received recognition in 2013.
Brian’s father, C. Michael, relocated the national headquarters to Asheville, NC, in 1993. But, he didn’t have to go it alone: Fifteen to 20 families made the move with Verble, according to Brian, who was 27 at the time. “That’s a testament to both granddad and my father, and it shows just how deep North American Roofing’s roots are with Indianapolis,” Brian said.
A veteran North American Roofing employee, Jim Conner, has retired from the company. Jim started with North American in 1985 in a Sales position, landed many deals (some of which are still customers today!) and managed the Sales department for a number of years. He became known for the unbelievable number of miles traveled by air and car, the hundreds of trade shows attended and the many, many customer symposiums he put together.
Those who knew Jim will remember him for one thing above all the rest, his character. His loyalty to the company and his genuineness set the bar for what we call being a S.T.A.R. employee today.
We are grateful for the contribution Jim made to the company, for the foundation he helped build that we all work to grow.
We will miss him dearly…
