Board of Directors

Frank “Mac” Mayfield

Board Chair

Mac Mayfield is a St. Louis, Mo., native who earned a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Missouri – Rolla, while enjoying the good life in the Ozarks. While in college, Mac worked with other engineering students to develop, sell and install several residential and commercial thermal solar projects during the Carter administration.

Upon graduation in 1981, President Reagan was not hiring for the EPA, so Mac pursued his newfound interest in mechanical systems and energy efficiency by going to work for Trane air conditioning. His career with Trane took him to Boston and then back to St. Louis. When the company was opening an office in Northwest Arkansas, Mac jumped at the chance to relocate to Springdale, his wife’s hometown. Mac, his wife and two children moved to Northwest Arkansas in 1993.

Until 2017, Mac worked for Trane’s local commercial office in several capacities, primarily as operations manager for the service and controls divisions. Additionally, he served on the state’s first Energy Improvement District (EID) board, overseeing the development of the PACE program for the Cities of Fayetteville and Springdale. He served two years as Chairman of EID No. 1 board and traveled to national and regional PACE conferences.

Now retired from his engineering career, Mac stays busy with gardening, church and community. He currently spends more time looking at his fishing rods than using them, a situation which he intends on changing soon!
