David Orr has been elected as Hooper Corporation's eighth president. Orr's appointment is from General Heating and Air Conditioning, a subsidiary of Hooper, where he served as president since 2010.

Brad Werlein has replaced Orr as president of General Heating and Air Conditioning. Werlein, previously was vice president of GHAC, and he came to the company with well over 20 years in the industry.
