“We are truly a richer association because of Ellis’s contributions,” said Stan Johnson, ACCA chairman. “He has consistently been a go-to resource for ACCA’s leadership and staff, giving generously of his time and expertise to raise the bar of the HVACR contracting industry.”

Guiles was recognized at ACCA’s 42nd Annual Conference and Indoor Air Expo, held this week in Tampa, Fla. He was presented the award in front of contractor members at the association’s annual Town Hall Meeting.
