AIRTEST ANNOUNCES NEW DIRECTOR OF SALES AND MARKETING
[Vancouver British Columbia] Mr. George Graham the President of
ATI AirTest Technologies is pleased to announce the appointment
of Mike Schell as Director of Sales and Marketing for the Company.
Mike has been involved in the HVAC and building control industry
for over 15 years and is a recognized expert in building indoor
air quality. Working closely with major building controls companies
as well as codes and standards regulatory bodies, Mike has been
instrumental in the rapid growth of CO2 sensors for ventilation
control and energy savings in buildings. In the past five years
the market has grown from zero to over $60 million (US$) annually,
and is growing at a rate of 30% per year.
Mike has authored over 50 articles and papers on energy savings
technologies, indoor air quality and building science. Through his
efforts, ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and
Air-Conditioning Engineers) have modified their Standards to include
demand control ventilation through use of CO2 sensors.
For the past 8 years Mike has headed Sales and Marketing for another
manufacturer of CO2 sensors. During this period Mike led his former
company to a 50% share of the North American market and increased
their sales of CO2 equipment more than 8 times their sales level
when he started directing sales for that company.
The combination of the newly acquired SenseAir line of CO2 equipment
announced April 19th, along with the appointment of Mike Schell
will give AirTest a very strong presence in the North American CO2
