The Air Movement and Control Association (AMCA) has hired Aaron Gunzner to take on the new role of advocacy manager.

Gunzner will assume responsibility for many activities related to advocacy in North America, including participation in code hearings, conferences, and meetings; service on advocacy-related committees; contributing to advocacy-related content and member advisories; improving infrastructure for advocacy; and contributing to positive industry relations.

Previously, Gunzner was a design engineer and production manager for a manufacturer of X-ray collimators in Golden, Colorado.

Gunzner holds a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in mechanical engineering from the Colorado School of Mines. His coursework included classes on HVAC equipment and design and performance analysis.

“Aaron brings a lot of engineering and communications talent to the role of advocacy manager,” said Michael Ivanovich, AMCA senior director, global affairs. “As he integrates into internal and external committees, colleagues will learn quickly that Aaron also has integrity, team spirit, and an inherent desire to drive the association’s mission forward.”
