Philadelphia - December 8, 2021
Investment Sila Heating & Air Conditioning’s Board of Directors announced today that Jason Rabbino will be joining the company as Chief Executive Officer effective immediately. During his 30-year career, Jason has held numerous leadership roles in the Industrial, Business and Consumer Services sectors, most recently as EVP and Chief Commercial Officer of Towne Park.
“I am thrilled to be joining the exceptional team at Sila, an organization that shares my strong focus on doing the right thing for customers, employees, and shareholders,” said Rabbino. “The Sila founders and leadership team have built a dynamic, high-performing company with a long history of successful growth and exceptional future potential. I am excited to partner with them to lead the next chapter of organic expansion and continue building our distinctive platform through further acquisitions.”
Sila has built a strong reputation in the industry for its distinctive level of service and quality across many geographic regions.

“Jason’s strong track record, expertise with distributed businesses, and team-oriented leadership style will be an excellent fit with the Sila team,” said Adam Shaw, Managing Director of Morgan Stanley Capital Partners. “His background in Commercial and Operational leadership uniquely qualifies him to drive the strategy and execute on the next chapter of growth for Sila. Jason’s ability to identify, acquire, and integrate complementary businesses will help us further accelerate the pace and value creation that Sila has already achieved through M&A.”
Jack Rothacker, Founder of Sila, said “Jason joins us at an exciting time for the business and will be a great partner to the Sila team.
