The Single Ply Roofing Industry (SPRI) is pleased to introduce Scott Carpenter as President for the next two years (2024-2025). With a 40-year track record in the roofing industry, Scott is no stranger to SPRI. He’s been involved with the organization for over 20 years.

Over the next two years, Scott plans to continue to enact the five-year plan developed in 2022. This plan includes defining a strategic vision that encompassed hiring a new technical director (Chadwick Collins) and welcoming external resources like marketing and code development experts. Guided by these foundational goals, Scott aims to lead by example, much as his predecessor Brad Van Dam did.

“SPRI is grateful for the guidance of Brad over the last two years,” Scott stated. “I’m looking forward to the opportunity to learn from the members and continue to grow our reach within the industry, and to continue being the authority on single ply.”

Under this strategic guidance, Scott envisions SPRI extending its reach while maintaining the close-knit culture that our members treasure. His ‘OMNI’ part passion, showcasing SPRI’s onboarding program — Onboarding Members Nurturing Involvement — highlights how we’re not just signing up new faces; SPRI is welcoming new stories, new ideas, and new companies into its fold.

For those who know Scott, his passion is community, from co-chairing the annual conference to welcoming new members. Because for Scott, it’s about more than just numbers; it’s about nurturing a healthy ecosystem that thrives on active participation and intentional engagement. If you’re a first-time member, expect a warm embracement into our community, as Scott believes no one should feel like an outsider looking in.

The roofing industry is constantly evolving, and SPRI will continue to navigate the headwinds of change regarding industry consolidation concerns, and is unwavering in its goal to foster the organization’s growth.

SPRI looks forward to the wisdom and dedication Scott brings as SPRI President.

Scott resides on his ancestral farm in Locust, North Carolina, with his cherished wife, Lynn. Together, they have three adult children and four grandchildren. Scott is dedicated to sharing his journey and plays an active role in both his local church and community.
