The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification named Patrick Winters its first, full-time paid president effective Aug. 1. Winters will report to the IICRC board of directors and its chairman.

This represents a significant change in how the Institute is run. Since its founding in 1972, a volunteer president and CEO has managed the organization, while at the same time running her or his own business.

“The Institute has grown impressively and made an important mark on the inspection, cleaning and restoration industries for more than 30 years thanks to the contributions of volunteers at all levels, who will remain the backbone of the organization,” said Paul Pearce, board chairman and president. “Combining their dedication and expertise with the exceptional management experience of Pat Winters will ensure that we tap the full potential of the Institute and maximize our contributions to the registrants and the industries we serve.”

Winters brings more than 30 years of not-for-profit management experience to his new position with the Institute. For the past eight years, he served as executive director of the Society for Maintenance and Reliability Professionals, a 3,000-member international engineering organization. He has previously been president and chief executive officer of the Denver-area Better Business Bureau, the National Association of Credit Management and Chicago Midwest Service Corporation, and the Building Owners and Managers Association of Denver, Colorado.
