Board of Directors

Jerry CallahanJerry Callahan

An inventor at heart, Jerry founded Heatworks the day he realized the water heater he needed didn’t exist. Rather than buy an inferior product, he decided to find a better way to heat water.

His relentless dedication to reinventing water heating technology led to developing Ohmic Array Technology, the most effective way to heat any conductive liquid. Applications for the patented technology range from hot beverage machines to cleaning fluid heating for automotive LIDAR sensors to massive commercial water heaters. In fact, there is no liquid heating application that cannot benefit from Ohmic Array Technology.

Jerry grew up on Cape Cod, MA, and studied naval architecture at MIT and the Stevens Institute of Technology. After attaining his MBA from University of Chicago, Jerry co-founded Blue Rhino, the world’s leading propane cylinder exchange company, before moving to South Carolina and founding Heatworks.

When not losing sleep thinking about the next award-winning, new product, Jerry loves to spend time on the water sailing competitively along the coast or in the air flying his Beech Bonanza. He also enjoys traveling with his wife Susie and his two adult children, Jack and Cam.
