Highlights from Our Annual Leadership Meeting
by Adam Coffey
Just back from our annual leadership meeting and we are happy to report that CoolSys is growing fast. Currently over $423 million in revenue, and now over 2,000 employees strong given our recent acquisition of Syracuse, NY based ABC Refrigeration and HVAC. Our growth has been phenomenal and is accelerating!
It’s not all about money though. In this year’s annual leadership meeting we also had some fun and at our team building competition – it was high stakes in the name of charity. Our winning team included:
From left to right: Joe Blanding, Bryan Fullen, Omar Ng, Jay Parker, and Mark Rotner
As winners – they got to decide which local charities received the spoils of their efforts! In this case it was $1250.00 to The Boys and Girls Club of Brea – Placentia – Yorba Linda and another $1250.00 to Families Forward. You can learn more about these organizations at http://www.everykid.org/about-us.html and https://www.families-forward.org/about/
Our focus for 2019 was to change how we lead – and to engage all members of the empire at large. A new organization structure was released. We are organizing ourselves into three active divisions – each with a president and to have those three presidents supported by a group of executives at CoolSys corporate whose sole focus is to help each of these divisions grow faster!
More on this structure in our annual video series that will be sent to all employees soon!
In addition, at this year’s annual meeting we embraced our entrepreneurs who are members of what I like to call “The Former Owners Alumni Club”! One of the things that truly makes CoolSys special is the fact that we are a group of people – all successful as individuals that built companies – who have decided there is strength in numbers and that collectively working together we can be the world’s dominate superpower in HVAC/R! I celebrate this group of guys and am honored to be going to battle with each of them every day!
