WASHINGTON, DC — The International Code Council and Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI) today announce the transition of Matt Sigler to the role of PMG Executive Director at the Code Council, effective on July 6.
In his new role at the Code Council—a global leader in plumbing and mechanical codes, standards and product certification—Sigler will lead a team of subject matter experts and business managers from all parts of the Code Council family of solutions to advance strategic goals in support of manufacturers and stakeholders.
Sigler is a well-known and highly respected technical expert in the industry with over 20 years of experience in construction, codes and engineering. He most recently worked as the Technical Director for PMI, the management trade association representing plumbing fixture and fitting manufacturers.
In addition, Shawn Strausbaugh has taken over as lead of the Government Relations PMG Team at the Code Council. As Senior Director of PMG Technical Resources, Strausbaugh will oversee the Code Council’s Government Relations PMG technical experts and work closely with Sigler to promote safe, effective and affordable plumbing codes and standards globally.
“I am excited to have Matt and Shawn on our staff to help advance plumbing and mechanical safety around the world,” said Code Council Chief Executive Officer Dominic Sims, CBO. “Access to safe, clean water and indoor air quality are essential to the well-being of each of us. Matt and Shawn’s expertise, energy and leadership skills will help us expand our PMG programs to support manufacturers, designers, contractors and the entire building safety community.”
Kerry Stackpole, PMI’s CEO/Executive Director, said PMI will greatly miss Sigler but is glad to know he will be in a leadership position with a PMI member. “It is with a combination of emotions that we congratulate Matt on his new position with the Code Council. Matt has been a collaborator, strategist, and builder of member value at PMI, addressing the most critical technical and legislative issues facing our members. We all wish him well in this new endeavor.”
