HOUSTON — Century A/C Supply, an HVAC distributor in the Houston area, announced that Ken Schreiber has been promoted to president of Century A/C Supply.

Schreiber is an accomplished executive with more than two decades of senior management experience in the HVAC industry.  He has over 30 years tenure with Century-affiliated companies and has held the positions of inventory control specialist, MIS director, VP of operations and most recently, general manager. As president, Schreiber will leverage his proven leadership experience to drive strategic planning, and profitability for the business.

“It’s an exciting time for Century A/C with the recent acquisition/partnership with Rheem," said Schreiber. "As we move into our 50th year of business, I look forward to building on the solid foundation laid by Rick Luke and continuing to introduce innovative solutions that will add to the significant growth the company has experienced since 1973."

Schreiber most recently held the position of general manager and will be replacing Rick Luke, who has served as president since 1993 and will remain the president of air management supply in the Midwest, a sister company to Century A/C.

“Ken has been instrumental in the growth and success of The Century Companies for 30 years," said Luke. "His work ethic has paid dividends in his constant pursuit of accountability and efficiency. His efforts to learn the IT world in the '90s was paramount in moving the company forward and providing solutions for growth. Advancing to COO and on to general manager, his knowledge of the distribution business is unmatched. I could not be more confident of leaving the company in his hands. He will continue the legacy of Century that Dennis Bearden started 50 years ago."
