WASHINGTON – The Roof Coatings Manufacturers Association (RCMA) has selected Matt Coffindaffer as its new executive director. Coffindaffer replaces Jim Kirby, who leaves RCMA to pursue his professional interests in architecture and building science.

“RCMA has a very strong and capable management team supporting its members each and every day to bring a unified voice on common issues important to the roof coatings industry,” said Kirby. “It has been an honor serving as executive director for RCMA, and I am happy to pass the torch to Matt.”

Coffindaffer is a certified association executive and has several years of experience working in Washington, D.C. in association management. Coffindaffer has served as executive director of the OpenTravel Alliance and led strategic initiatives for a number of associations including the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE), the National Pest Management Association, and the National Council of Agricultural Employers. He is a 2016 recipient of the Association Forum USAE 40 under 40 and an ASAE NextGen alumni.

“I am looking forward to the opportunity to serve the members of RCMA, our constituencies, and our industry,” said Coffindaffer. “I believe strongly in the power of collaboration and in bringing people of all backgrounds and varying levels of experience and expertise to drive consensus, create new opportunities and value, and otherwise further the mission and vision of RCMA and our industry.”

Coffindaffer completed both his undergraduate degree and M.B.A. from West Virginia University in Morgantown, W. Va. In his free time, he likes to participate in triathlons and play recreational league soccer.
