Titus has hired Nick Searle as its chief engineer and sales for chilled beams and underfloor systems. Along with helping grow these product lines, Searle will aid Titus reps and their engineers in applying and specifying chilled beams and underfloor systems to match the unique needs of each customer.

With more than 25 years of experience in noise control applications and sales, Titus officials said Searle brings a wealth of HVAC knowledge to the company. His history includes involvement with several high-profile chilled beam projects across the United States, including the first hospital to use active chilled beams.

“Nick has introduced innovative technologies into new markets throughout his career and is one of the industry’s foremost experts,” said David Pich, director of HVAC technologies at Titus. “We’re excited for him to build on that foundation and reputation here at Titus as he helps further enhance our chilled beams and underfloor systems.”

Prior to his role at Titus, Searle was the regional director at DADANCO-MESTEK JV, where he specialized in high-performance active and passive chilled beams. He also has served as an international applications engineer at Trox USA and as the managing director of Condition Monitoring Technology.

Searle earned a BTEC Certificate in air conditioning engineering from Wandsworth College and a diploma in noise control engineering from North East Surrey College of Technology.
