WASHINGTON  — The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) announced Bryan Cordill as its director of residential and commercial business development.

In his new role, Cordill will lead efforts to support and grow propane demand in the residential and commercial construction markets. Additionally, he will facilitate the development and adoption of propane-powered equipment and appliances through business development, product development, and market development activities to preserve existing markets and develop new growth opportunities.

“Bryan is uniquely qualified for this position thanks to his background in the propane industry and his extensive knowledge of what residential and commercial construction professionals expect from a building’s energy source,” said PERC President and CEO Tucker Perkins. “We look forward to Bryan leading our residential and commercial market programs to new heights.”

Cordill spent 17 years working as a sales manager for his family’s propane business, Cordill Butane-Propane Service — an independent propane supplier in Monroe, Louisiana. He was then named business development officer at Ajasent Inc., where he provided cloud hosting services for propane and related service companies. Most recently, Cordill co-founded Proponent LLC — a consulting company — where he worked with company leadership to develop and deploy new strategies.

Cordill has a master’s degree in industrial and organizational psychology from Louisiana Tech University. He lives in Monroe, Louisiana.

“I’m excited and humbled to be a part of the PERC team,” Cordill said. “This opportunity will allow me to have an impact on propane use nationwide, which is something I’m passionate about, and I can’t wait to get started.”
