Boiler Supply Company, a Nashville, TN power service company, has named Bob Shipley vice president of technical services, and Hugh York vice president of sales.
“The promotion of Hugh York and Bob Shipley signifies the beginning of a new way to attack, service, and move forward in our business. The newly formed Labor and Sales Groups at Boiler Supply allows us to consolidate the management of our Service/Repair Technicians and our Sales force under the leadership of these two individuals,” says Eddie Lunn, III., President of Boiler Supply Company.
Before joining Boiler Supply Company in 1996 as the manager of the Knoxville operations, Shipley worked in the computer industry, servicing both national and international accounts.
“Having Bob Shipley focused on the needs and development of our Service and Repair Techs, we can do a better job of equipping everyone with the necessary tools and training to maintain our strong market position,” says Lunn.
York is the fourth generation of his family to find a career in the boiler industry. He began in 1975 as a part-time warehouse worker for Industrial Boiler Company. York quickly grew into field work and then moved into a sales position. In 1995 when Boiler Supply expanded into Atlanta through the acquisition of Applied Engineering, a Cleaver Brooks Company, York was promoted to the manager of the Georgia operations.
“Hugh York has managed our Georgia office for the past 10 years. He brings more than 40 years of sales experience and expertise in our industry,” says Lunn. “The promotion of Hugh to head our Sales group across multiple offices is going to strengthen our position as we grow in the southeast region as the most professional and complete power plant company.”
Boiler Supply owns and operates several industry-related companies throughout the southeast region. Visit www.boisco.com for additional information.
