May 25, 2012: WaterFurnace CEO Elected Chairman of GEO

May 25, 2012
FORT WAYNE, Ind. — WaterFurnace International Inc., a leading manufacturer of geothermal and water source heat pumps, has announced the election of WaterFurnace CEO Tom Huntington as chairman of the Geothermal Exchange Organization (GEO).

GEO is a nonprofit trade association that serves its members as the voice of the geothermal heat pump industry. The group works to promote favorable legislation on both Capitol Hill and at the local level, and organizes educational activities, outreach efforts, and awareness marketing. Association membership is made up of businesses dedicated to the success of the geothermal industry.

“I’m honored and excited to assume this new position at GEO,” said Huntington. “Clean energy legislation and financial incentives can play a positive role in the widespread adoption of geothermal heat pump technologies, and GEO is dedicated to helping create those opportunities. Anywhere power constraints are a problem, geothermal heat pumps are probably part of the solution.”

Huntington came to WaterFurnace as president and chief executive officer in 2009. Prior to joining WaterFurnace, he served in a variety of roles with Johnson Controls, York International, and Carrier Corp. He was past chairman of the Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association (GAMA) and was involved in the consolidation of the Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute and Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association. He currently serves on the planning board of the resulting consolidated organization, the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI). He also served on the board of directors of North American Technician Excellence (NATE).
