"John Lewis has been involved with NFRC in various roles since the early 1990's," states Jim Benney, NFRC executive director. "His diverse background and industry expertise enable him to bring a unique perspective to his new position, and this will help NFRC build valuable, enduring relationships that will help the organization grow."

"I'm excited about helping NFRC further its mission by identifying new business opportunities and promoting emerging programs such as the component modeling approach," Lewis says. "I'm also looking forward to reaching out to the industry on the whole to increase recognition of NFRC's rating and labeling system."
