Aaron is our determined and focused leader. He is a product of the computer technology generation (generation X), growing up with “techie” parents; he had his first computer at only 8 years old (way back in the late 1970’s!). He brings a wealth of experience in both business and technology.
Aaron has been running or owning different businesses since his 18th birthday. He earned a certificate in Software Product Management from the University of Washington and has completed countless seminars and training on Management and Software development.
Aaron also volunteers at the University of Washington as a motivational speaker, advisory board member and coach for the Software Product Management Certificate Program.
Not only has Aaron completed training in every BDR class but is often called upon to develop content and materials for BDR’s training classes. He has been published in different industry publications and was featured in the CBNC news story about our company.
Combining his strong entrepreneurial spirit, technology know-how, and vision with the knowledge of the HVAC industry pasted down through his family line (both his Uncle and Grandfather were successful HVAC contractors), Aaron has been able to build and structure Opportunity Interactive for success today and into the future.
Greg was born into the HVAC business. His entire family currently owns or has owned HVAC companies. Greg himself has owned and operated HVAC businesses in different areas of the US including Oregon, Alaska and Washington. His different companies have been located in rural areas and in large cities and have done revenues from a few hundred thousands to several million a year. Operating small and large companies has given him one of his greatest competitive advantages, the experience of having successfully taken an HVAC company through the many unique growth cycles (walls).
This broad range of experience was one of the key factors for Greg being recruited to Business Development Resources as a consultant specializing in Labor Management. Greg has consulted nationally with many HVAC clients. He has been a guest speaker and instructor at Distributor and Manufacturer meetings and classes. Greg is also a certified ACCA instructor for Manual J.
Greg’s down to earth personality makes him a favorite with all of our customers. He has lived the contractor’s life and freely shares his experiences with our customers. Where others speak from theory, Greg speaks from experience.
