The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has named Carlos Correia as its vice president of strategic initiatives. In his new role, Correia will oversee the association’s business diversification which may include acquisitions, innovation, and scaling businesses in related sectors.

Correia previously served as vice president and general manager of Assets and Sustainability Performance at Underwriters Laboratories (UL). There, he oversaw the company’s digital and consulting business, with a focus on energy transition, healthy buildings, sustainability, and health and safety. Throughout his career, he has led several businesses and units.  Correia also has extensive international work experience, having lived, and worked in Germany, Japan, and the US.

“Carlos brings a diverse international business background and a proven ability to steer successful businesses and growth strategies,” said Jim Pauley, NFPA President and CEO. “His unique set of skills and experiences will greatly help NFPA widen its impact and reach, furthering our important fire, life, and electrical safety mission.”

Correia holds a Mechanical Engineering degree from Escola Superior Náutica Infante D. Henrique in Portugal and an MBA from UBI Business School in Belgium. Fluent in English, Portuguese, French, and Spanish, and with his global work experience, Correia brings an invaluable international perspective to his new role at NFPA.

“Emerging safety risks call for innovative solutions and strategic approaches,” noted Pauley. “With Carlos spearheading our strategic initiatives, we are better positioned globally to tackle persistent and emerging fire safety challenges.”
