EAGAN, Minnesota—August 27, 2018—Each year, leading HVACR publication The NEWS highlights the 40 young leaders who are transforming the industry in its 40 Under 40 list. Among those honored in 2018 was Nick Sattler, executive director of MechanicalXchange, a strategic partnership summit serving HVACR executives. Sattler is also leader of the firm’s building/facilities division, which includes ExecutiveXchange for Multifamily and Single Family Home Builders and ProcessTechnologyXchange for engineering and operations executives in food and beverage processing.

Produced each fall by The NEWS, the 40 Under 40 list annually highlights young HVACR leaders from every aspect of the industry who are “accomplishing great things in their positions.”

“This is one of my favorite issues we do every year,” said Kyle Gargaro, editorial director, The NEWS. “It is easy to forget how many young people are doing truly great things for the industry. This list really highlights some of the best and the brightest coming up in the HVACR industry.”

Nick Sattler, who is a partner in VerticalXchange in addition to heading up MechanicalXchange, has served the HVACR industry since 2014, when he took the helm of MechanicalXchange, an invite-only summit that brings in the senior teams from some of the largest Design Build Mechanical Contracting firms in the US to meet with the senior teams representing some of the industries' leading Manufacturers over a two-day period. 

“MechanicalXchange is one of our longest-running strategic partnership summits, and it was a successful eXchange already when Nick took charge and led it to a new level,” says Greg Geisler, CEO, VerticalXchange. “Experts in design/build mechanical contracting know that by creating strategic partnerships with their solution providers, they are able to achieve game-changing insights that drive business results.”

MechanicalXchange will be Sept. 30 – Oct. 3, 2018 at The Lodges at Deer Valley in Park City, Utah. To find out more, contact Nick Sattler at nsattler@verticalxchange.com or 952-224-7613.
