NATE’s Kathy Corr Retires

Posted on:

Kathy Corr, director of strategic relationships for North American Technician Excellence (NATE), retired March 30, 2012.  Known throughout the industry as “Kate from NATE,” Corr has been an integral member of the NATE team since 2006.

In her role as director of strategic relationships, Corr has traveled the country to spread the word about NATE’s commitment to technician excellence through qualified testing and certification.  Her affable personality and professionalism have solidified relationships with countless industry professionals and groups, affording NATE many new opportunities and helping to significantly increase the number of certified technicians.  Throughout most of her tenure at NATE, Corr has also overseen all marketing efforts, which recently expanded to include a consumer advertising campaign.

“Kathy has been a vital member of the NATE family for years, and we can’t thank her enough for everything she’s done to expand and enhance this association,” stated Don Frendberg, Chairman of the NATE Board of Trustees.  “Through her hard work and leadership, she has made an enormous impact on the long-term success of NATE while also managing many of the day-to-day operations.  She will truly be missed, and we all wish her nothing but the best.”

“My retirement is a bittersweet end to a career that has spanned numerous trades, and I’m incredibly grateful that the last chapter was with NATE,” notes Corr.  “I take great pride in being a part of this association, as well as the HVACR community as a whole; this job has allowed me to connect with so many amazing people, and I will forever appreciate my time as ‘Kate from NATE.’ As much as I will miss working with the NATE team and seeing my industry friends on a regular basis, the beach is calling!”
