“With strong global demand for Mars and our innovative products like the BAC-net capable SimpleLink™, the Clean Air series of products (Mars HEPAC® and soon Mars UVC™) that sanitize air, demand for our products and whole facility solutions continues to grow. The strong leadership Chris brings helps us meet the growth challenges,” said Steve Rosol, president, Mars Air Systems. “Chris knows the needs of the market well and brings strong leadership and rich experience to his front-line role listening to and connecting with the Mars end users, reps and dealers,” he continued. “And, when we launch QuietPro™ in the second half of 2018, we will satisfy a segment that always pressed us for quieter air curtains and demand will continue its continual march upward. Chris will help us meet growth challenges.”  

Burke held leadership positions with Trane and Goodman Manufacturing. Burke continues to report to Steve Rosol, president, and supports over 200 factory-trained manufacturers’ representatives and dealers/distributors across the United States and globally.
