What’s the most interesting thing that’s happened on a job?
The HVAC industry is a people business which is always interesting; however, it is seldom as exciting as helping free a cat that is stuck in ductwork between the first and second floors of a home.
What is your favorite thing about zone control?
We have 3 systems and 10 zones in our own home. My wife would say she loves the ability to have the temperature exactly where she wants it all the time in every room. As an example, our bedroom is always 67 degrees. You know what they say about keeping momma happy….
What is the best thing about working with Jackson Systems?
Their technical support is always available, extremely helpful, and the Jackson team never talks down to our team members as they help us solve a problem.
What do you love about your job?
Developing people. We have had several people promoted from our office to leadership roles in other affiliate companies. For example, we are extremely proud of Scott Boose who started out as our Controller and was promoted to Service Manager prior to being promoted to Senior Vice President in a regional role. He was then promoted to run British Gas Services where he managed over 8,000 technicians. Today, Scott heads up Clockwork and oversees all of the OneHour, Ben Franklin and Mr. Sparky operations and franchises. Developing leaders is a two-way street and people like Scott leave you with more than they take with them.
How do you spend your time outside of work?
We have six grandchildren and I love spending time with them. I plan to take our two oldest grandchildren to South Dakota (by myself) in a few weeks to show them their Becker/Engbrecht heritage while seeing the Badlands and Mount Rushmore. I also love to work in the yard and head up our church’s golf league.
What is your motto?
Do the right thing, even when no one else is looking.
