HVAC construction group the Mechanical Contractors Association of Chicago has a new executive director.

Lawyer Jill Eckert McCall replaces Stephen Lamb, who is leaving to start a consulting business.

“I knew that MCA is a premier local organization, and seeing that the MCA’s master initiatives match some of my own interests made the position really interesting to me,” McCall said. “Increasing education on technology, encouraging the engagement of our younger emerging leaders, and bringing all of our members together through committees are necessary to maintain a viable position of leadership in the industry.”
