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.
