I have 42 years in the HVAC and Mechanical Industry. I began my career in 1978 serving a five-year apprenticeship in Local Union 725 Miami, Florida. I rapidly gained a world of knowledge in preventative maintenance, service, and repairs, installations and retrofit projects on all forms of commercial and industrial HVAC equipment. In 1995, I moved to Georgia from South Florida. I joined McKenney’s Mechanical Contractors in Atlanta and worked as a Service Technician until I was quickly promoted to a Project Manager. During this time, I expanded my knowledge in the engineering and design of mechanical, hydronic, and air distribution systems, all the while excelling team leadership. My career has taken me to work in countries such as Panama, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and The Bahamas. In 2004, I stepped out on my own and started Georgia Climate Control. Since then, Georgia Climate Control has grown as a trusted and dependable full-service mechanical contractor in the industrial and commercial market. In 2016, I started a residential division of GCC and since then we have become a Carrier Certified Factory Authorized Dealer and we have received the 2020 Carrier Presidential award for excellence. Georgia Climate Control is now a household name for reliability and trusted service.
