Jeff Underwood is vice president of sales and marketing for RectorSeal, a manufacturer and distributor of HVACR, plumbing, and electrical products. Fascinated by the complexity and the honesty of the industry, Underwood joined the HVAC community in 2011 and assumed several positions at Goodman Manufacturing, including Daikin brand manager, director of brand management, and vice president of marketing.

Since joining RectorSeal, Underwood has pushed to establish more holistic product solutions, from condensate management to ductless accessories. He has also pushed to reinvigorate the pace of new product innovation, including launching new products such as push-to-connect refrigerant fittings and surge protection devices.

“We find our purpose in helping contractors to be more productive and successful through meaningful innovations. We genuinely enjoy seeing contractors do their jobs better, faster, safer, and more reliably,” Underwood said.

Based on a desire to help contractors learn on their own time, Underwood helped RectorSeal launch comprehensive on-demand training that is free to groups of HVAC service technicians as well as distributor staff. Utilizing NATE-certified staff, the online training capabilities makes the manufacturer not only a product provider but now an educator in the industry.

Long term, Underwood is pushing to help drive ease of doing business by having RectorSeal fully digitize the sales support process from the availability of product information to the support processes for ordering. Underwood and his team thrive on delivering data, meeting distributors’ and contractors’ needs at their convenience.
