Keith Glasch is the new principal and president of ACI Mechanical and HVAC Sales. Glasch succeeds Jim Sinclair, who assumes the role of chairman of the board.
"This is an exciting time for ACI. Keith's leadership and commercial HVAC and air distribution experience can only accelerate ACI's long history of growth," said Sinclair.
"The opportunity to lead at ACI is an honor. The collaboration between an impressive management team and strong engineering and sales talent has fueled years of successful HVAC projects," said Glasch.
Glasch has 31 years of commercial HVAC experience, including his most recent role as president of Ruskin, based in Kansas City. He has a Master of Business Administration from University of Dallas and a Bachelor of Science from University of Illinois Champaign Urbana. His experience in commercial HVAC and air distribution with the firms Johnson Controls, Titus, Daikin, and Carrier ensures ACI's engineering and contracting customers will continue to deliver successful results.
Sinclair founded ACI in 1985 with his business partner Mike Otani, who remains as VP of the organization. Sinclair has a Bachelor of Arts from University of Arizona and his expertise in air distribution earned him the nickname "Jimmy Diffuser." He has been part of the Pacific Northwest construction community for 35 years. Sinclair grew ACI from a two-person operation to a three-location, 45-person manufacturers' rep firm representing top tier lines. He will remain with ACI in an advisory capacity.
