Colorado Springs, Colo. (September 14, 2022) — The Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors’ National Association (SMACNA), the leader in promoting quality and excellence in the sheet metal and air conditioning industry, announced Todd Hill, president of Ventcon, has been elected by the Board of Directors to serve as vice president. Hill’s year-long term in office begins at the close of SMACNA’s 78th Annual Convention in Colorado Springs.
Hill began his career in 1990 as a sheet metal apprentice with Ventcon, an industry-leading HVAC sheet metal mechanical contractor based in Allen Park, Michigan.

At Ventcon, Hill became a CAD operator and advanced through several management positions, becoming president in 2005. In 2010, Hill and his two partners acquired the business.
