McCordsville, IN – Dan Cook, founder and president, has announced Brent Archer as general manager for Proportion-Air, Inc. In the announcement Cook advised that Archer will have responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the company.
Archer has a long history working for Proportion-Air having started with the company in 1990. He served in many positions including marketing, production manager and IT manager prior to his departure in 2006. Since 2006 Archer has been working in the mortgage industry. However, during this period he maintained contact with Proportion-Air founder, Cook, and general manager, John McCarrel, by providing consulting services on the company’s computer and software systems.
With the untimely passing of McCarrel earlier this year, Cook asked Archer to return and lead the company on a day-to-day basis.
Archer’s return was combined with the promotion of David Reed to vice president of engineering. Reed will be responsible for new product development and the continued excellence of the product line.
Reed joined Proportion-Air in 1994 as an applications engineer after earning both his AAS in mechanical engineering technology and a BS in mechanical technology from Purdue University. In 1997 he was promoted to engineering manager, the position he held until today’s announcement.
