BELLEVUE, Ohio - After 40 years in the industry, Allied Air Enterprises' Eastern Regional Sales Manager Bill Houser formally announced his retirement effective June 2006.

Houser began his industry experience working with Melco for 20 years, ending his tenure there as vice president of operations. Houser then joined MLX Corp., working his way to president and CEO of the company. After moving from MLX, he finished his wholesale distribution career as senior vice president of sales and operations for Sid Harvey's. After eight years with Allied Air Enterprises as eastern regional sales manager, Houser completed his career.

"Bill's reputation for fairness and integrity are unparalleled and he has been an incredible role model for those who have worked under his leadership," said Kirk Thorne, vice president of sales and marketing for Allied Air Enterprises. "Bill has been an incredible asset to Allied Air Enterprises, and his efforts are a major reason for the stability and growth of our Eastern Region customer base."

Allied Air Enterprises' Steve Lembo will transition into the role of eastern regional sales manager. Prior to the transition, Lembo acted as western regional sales manager. Lembo has over 35 years of experience in the HVAC industry working in sales and marketing as well as the wholesale and manufacturing side of the industry.

In addition, Cole Mullinax has joined Allied Air Enterprises as western regional sales manager. Mullinax brings sales experience and a background in national sales management, distribution, and contracting to the company. Most recently Mullinax served as national sales manager for Haier America where he was responsible for the wholesale distribution network and field sales organization.
