A feverish rise in social and electronic media usage made keeping up with 2011 trends difficult. Without confidence in return on investments, many of the HVACR industry dabbled in the social and electronic realm; but most did not embrace the concept of speaking to the masses. Greg Crumpton did; and that’s what makes him a 2011 NEWSmaker.
Crumpton is the president and founder of AirTight Mechanical; a commercial contracting firm headquartered in Charlotte, N.C. His speaking to the masses began previous to 2011 as he endeavored to educate his staff, his customers, and his industry early in his career. Crumpton, who began his full-time HVAC career in 1982, now spends his days concentrating on developing people, retaining customers, and establishing strategic alliances.
