The Roofing Technology Think Tank (RT3) elected Andy Centauro of Elmer W. Davis Inc., Rochester, N.Y. and John Kenney of Cotney Attorneys & Consultants, Tampa, Fla. to fill two openings on the board of directors.

“We are very excited to welcome Andy and John to the board,” said Karen Edwards, RT3 director, in a post on RT3's website. “They have both been longtime active members of RT3 and will help us continue to be the voice of technology in the roofing industry.”

RT3 would also like to extend its gratitude to Heidi Ellsworth of HJE Consulting and Ryan Groth of Sales Transformation Group for their contribution to the organization.

“Heidi and Ryan contributed tremendously to the growth of the organization and the two will stay actively involved with Ryan continuing to host the RT3 podcast and Heidi as an active member of the meetups task team,” said Edwards.

Other board members include:

  • Anna Anderson, CEO of Art Unlimited
  • Brad Beldon, chief culture officer and CEO of Beldon Roofing
  • Wendy Marvin, CEO of Matrix Roofing & Home Solutions
  • Tom Whitaker, president of Harness Software

The think tank meets six times a year — four virtual events and two live events. Past live meetings have been held at innovative locations that help educate the group on progressive technologies that can make a difference in the roofing industry, including 3M Innovation Center and Roofing Granule Lab, OMG Roofing Products, Vanderbilt Wond’ry, Microsoft Innovation Lab, Georgia Tech, BuiltWorlds and the U.S. Capitol.

The next live meetup is planned for the UNLV Solar Decathlon project prior to the start of the International Roofing Expo (IRE). Following the meetup, RT3 contractor members will be participating in a panel at the 2021 IRE to share tips and information to other contractors about the journey of taking a roofing business digital and ending the paper trail.
