MollenhourGross names Amazon business leader as President of RoomOne Solutions

Mollenhour Gross LLC (MG) has announced the appointment of a former Amazon business line leader as the new President of RoomOne Solutions LLC, one of its portfolio companies.

Mark Prybell, a former Navy pilot, will be transitioning from his role as Director and Category Leader of Business Electronics at Amazon, where he has spent the last 10 years. Knoxville entrepreneur Larry Bodie served as Interim President of RoomOne during the executive search process.

“We’re thrilled Mark has chosen to lead the RoomOne enterprise,” said MG President Ryan Connor. “Having driven and led significant growth at one of the most remarkable companies in the world over the last decade, his professional experience speaks for itself. But more than that, Mark is a great fit for RoomOne because of his curiosity, integrity, servant leader qualities, and his strong commitment to personal and professional growth for himself, and all those around him.”

RoomOne, headquartered in Knoxville, refurbishes, distributes, and services packaged terminal air conditioners (PTACs), related parts and accessories, energy management systems, and access controls. MG has been involved in the PTAC industry since 2018, with the acquisition of Knoxville-based PTAC Inc. Since that time, RoomOne has quickly established itself as a leading partner to its growing pool of valued customers, ranging from the largest hospitality brands in the world to independent small-business owners.

“The team at RoomOne has built something special, and we’ll be working hard to capitalize on our strong forward momentum,” said Prybell. “I’m humbled that MG has entrusted me with this opportunity to continue to exceed our customers’ expectations.”
