Uponor North America has appointed product-management professional Chad Meyer to the newly created position of senior director, Intelligent Water. Meyer will lead the commercialization of the new Phyn Plus smart water assistant + shutoff, which made its debut in early this year at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and the International Builders’ Show in Orlando. He reports to Dena Mayne, vice president of Marketing and Customer Experience, Uponor North America.
“Beyond bringing Phyn Plus successfully to market this spring through our new Uponor Pro Squad, Chad will also create a long-term strategic roadmap focused on partnership, technologies and services that will help define Uponor as a leader in intelligent water solutions for consumers and our industry,” said Mayne.
Phyn Plus is a new smart water monitoring system that automatically measures tiny changes in water pressure in a home’s plumbing system, 240 times per second.
Meyer has worked in product marketing and management for more than 20 years for businesses involved in industrial and consumer products, healthcare products and services, and enterprise software solutions. Most recently, he served five years as senior director of product management at Solera Holdings – Parts Group, based in Plymouth, Minnesota.
