Stefany Hedman Westenskow has assumed the role of president and CEO of E-Therm Inc., and TPE Associates LLC, the Ventura, Calif.-based licensing companies for ThermaPureHeat. Westenskow succeeds her father, David Hedman, 59, who passed away peacefully at home on May 13 after battling cancer for several months. Hedman was founder, president and CEO of the ThermaPure family of companies – Precision Environmental, PrecisionWorks, E-Therm, TPE and ThermaPure – and developed Thermapure’s structural pasteurization process of sterilizing structures using clean, hot air.

“Our family and all of us at ThermaPure are deeply saddened to share the news of my father’s passing,” says Westenskow. “He leaves behind an important legacy of leadership, dedication to service, family and faith.”

Hedman’s passion as an inventor and entrepreneur began when studying engineering and economics at Stanford University. In the 1990s, he began developing ThermaPureHeat, the now patented technology that is the application of clean, dry, hot air to a structure to reduce or eliminate environmental contaminants.

Westenskow has been part of the ThermaPure companies’ leadership since 2007, and worked closely with her father on all management and operations issues at the companies while also overseeing the legal department for three years beginning in 2013. Maintaining the current, capable team, Westenskow plans to grow the ThermaPure brand with a renewed mission to protect and pursue environmentally sound solutions for pest and restoration issues.

A memorial service to honor Hedman’s life was held in May. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to a special fund set up by the Boy Scouts of America:
