Mehboob announced as ASHRAE president

USA: Farooq Mehboob, a consultant for Karachi-based M&E company S Mehboob & Co, has been named as the president of ASHRAE for 2022-23.

A fellow life member of ASHRAE, Mehboob is the first Pakistani national to hold the title. He succeeds current president Mick Schwedler. 

During his inaugural presidential address, Mehboob introduced the theme for the year as Securing Our Future. The theme examines how the crucial personal and professional events of the past can help us leverage relationships, knowledge and change, as the formula for making an impact and embracing our diverse world.

“It’s imperative that we continue to hunger for, and seek, information about our market, our changing world, and our technological advances. Breaking down silos and embracing change will infuse a new dynamism in our society at all levels, bringing to our members new knowledge, technology and tools in a timely fashion – helping them to successfully navigate the rapidly changing world,” said Mehboob.

The new president-elect is Ginger Scoggins, president and co-owner of Engineered Designs of Cary, North Carolina.
