Reliable Controls Corporation announced the appointment of Thomas Leslie Zaban, P.Eng, LEED Green Associate, to the office of president for the headquarters and worldwide operations of the company.
Roland Laird, founder of Reliable Controls, will be retiring at the end of 2019. Laird founded the company in 1986 and has remained active in leadership and technical roles.
Zaban has taken the first half of 2019 to transition into the top position of the firm while continuing with his executive sales and marketing responsibilities. He joined the company in 1996 to oversee sales, marketing, training, and technical documentation. Since that time, the company say he has been instrumental in establishing and building the company’s brand, training curricula, sales forecasts, and distribution channel, as well as expanding the company’s global market share.
Zaban says that he is “grateful for being chosen as the next president of one of the best companies in the industry.” He adds, “There remains much to do to deliver simple, flexible, and sustainable solutions that optimize energy efficiency, comfort, and greenhouse gas reductions in buildings all around the world.”
