Today we want to spotlight one of our Service Field Supervisors, Sam Brown! Sam started with us back in 2006 as an HVAC Technician’s Helper and has been invaluable to our team ever since. He was first drawn to the HVAC trade after speaking with an instructor at a career day event and enjoys the problem-solving aspect of the job. His favorite part is getting to work on different projects and pushing himself to learn new things with each task.

Happy Retirement, Peedle!

August 24, 2023

Happy retirement wishes go out to long-time RBI team member, Richard (Peedle) Wood! Peedle recently retired after working with RBI for 25 years. Throughout his career, he has worked side-by-side with almost every employee in the field, always giving 100% every day. Lunch breaks with Peedle could boost the morale of an entire job site, and his stories were shared by all. Peedle also coined lots of new words over the years that we lovingly referred to as Peedleisms. Some of our favorites are, “commalogical” which translates to the most practical way to do something, and “cosha’’ which means OSHA compliant.
