RPA hires Mark Eatherton as technical director

The Radiant Professionals Alliance hired Mark Eatherton, a 36-year veteran of the radiant/hydronics industry, as its technical director. Eatherton, an RPA member since 1995, will serve primarily as staff liaison to the Codes and Standards, Technical, Education, and Hydronics Industry Alliance committees. He will lead each in meeting its specific goals and objectives, coordinate its work, and ensure it represents the best interests and position of RPA membership.

Eatherton also will represent the RPA as an expert speaker and presenter of technical education via seminars and webinars, as well as writing columns and technical articles for publication.

“As chairman of the RPA, I could not be happier with Mark’s decision to join the RPA team,” said RPA Chairman Mark Chaffee of Taco. “His knowledge, experience and dedication to the industry are exemplary. Having him on board makes this organization even stronger and more able to serve all its members.”

RPA Vice Chairman Ingrid Mattsson of Uponor added: “I am delighted to hear that Mark Eatherton has accepted the position of technical director of the RPA. I have known Mark a long time and his commitment to the idea of improving how we live through radiant comfort and efficiency is second to none. The RPA will greatly benefit from his vast and varied experience, his inquisitive mind and his passion. This is good news not only for the RPA, but for the entire industry.”

Eatherton has recently served the industry as an expert witness and consultant, but said the opportunity to help develop the first radiant code convinced him to accept the position with the RPA.

In a letter to RPA members, he said: “After many hours of contemplation, I decided to … dedicate the rest of my time on the face of this Earth to accomplishing the goals of the organization, which include, but are not limited to: development of an actual Hydronics' Solar and Radiant Code; ongoing training, education and certification of contractors; spreading the word of the joys of radiant comfort; and using what I consider the best method of delivery (water-based system) to interface all of these highly technical alternative energy systems into the most comfortable method of delivering heat, that being radiant, in mankind’s quest and effort to reduce our impact on the environment and increase our levels of comfort.”

Eatherton may be reached at Mark.Eatherton@RadiantProfessionalsAlliance.org or 708/995-3001.
