The Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors has hired Michael R. Copp to be its new executive vice president.

“Michael’s proven expertise in association management, particularly in guiding strategic growth, is a great fit for our organization,” said former PHCC President Kevin Tindall. “We look forward to having him on our team as we continue to build a better future for PHCC and the industry.”

Copp held executive positions at the American Retirement Association., National Association of Home Builders and the American Institute of Architects.

“We’re seeing a great year ahead for PHCC,” said PHCC President Chip Greene.  “With Michael on board, we’ll be furthering PHCC’s mission with education, training, workforce development and public awareness initiatives that will help support the needs of our contractor members and the customers they serve. We are especially excited about Michael’s support of a ‘boots on the grounds’ program that will help us engage our members and develop programs to meet their needs.”
