The Arc welcomes Steve Smollon to its Board of Directors

The Arc Central Chesapeake Region (The Arc), a nonprofit committed to transforming lives for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), and Michele Tharp, Board Chair, are pleased to welcome Steve Smollon to The Arc’s Board of Directors.

Currently the ­­­­­­­President and co-founder of ClimateCare, a commercial, multi-family, and residential HVAC installation and service contractor, Steve is a professional with over twenty years of experience starting and leading businesses. ClimateCare has a presence throughout Maryland, Washington D.C., and the tri-state area, which means Steve is no stranger to growth, strategic risk, and the strengths and challenges that come with having a geographically diverse workforce.

“We are excited to welcome Steve to our Board,” said Jonathon Rondeau, President & CEO of The Arc. “His entrepreneurial, strategic mindset is valuable at an organization like The Arc where we are always moving toward what’s next and taking the strategic risks necessary to grow at scale throughout the central Chesapeake region.”

Steve worked for his family business, United Energy Products, Inc., and then ClimateCare for 14 years before deciding in 2016 that it was time to take ownership of ClimateCare’s future. Over the last seven years, Steve has grown ClimateCare to be a full-service small- and large-scale project service provider specializing in new construction, renovations, and service work.

“I am thrilled to be able to give back to the community by serving on The Arc’s Board of Directors,” said Steve. “The Arc’s approach and commitment to innovation is aligned with my own values as a leader. I’m eager to partner with The Arc as they move forward with their strategic plan and ensure Marylanders with IDD are receiving the highest quality services.”

Steve graduated from Elon University and lives in Annapolis with his wife and three children. In his spare time, Steve enjoys running in local charity races, golfing, fishing, and windsurfing on the Severn River and the Chesapeake Bay.
