A Certified Fire Protection Specialist (CFPS), Skare has also been a volunteer firefighter for more than eight years, and has a great passion for fire safety and the importance of residential fire sprinklers.

He started with Uponor in 2001 as a product engineer before moving into project management and is currently the product manager for AquaSAFE™, the company's multipurpose residential plumbing and fire sprinkler system.

“With the recent IRC fire sprinkler mandate for new homes built after Jan. 1, 2011, the residential fire sprinkler market is opening up considerably,” says Skare. “It is important that residential fire sprinklers have the proper representation and visibility in the marketplace.”

Skare received his degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Minnesota. He is a professional member of the NFSA, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the American Fire Sprinkler Association (AFSA) and the International Code Council (ICC).
