WASHINGTON - More than 500 Trane Comfort Specialist dealers and Trane corporate executives gathered in the nation’s capital to celebrate a decade of excellence and future innovation. It was there that Trane introduced the revamped Trane Comfort Specialist Program.

Attendees at the 10th Anniversary Trane Comfort Specialist Conference were informed of the new aspects in the revitalized program, which, according to the company, showcases the Trane Comfort Specialist dealers’ elite qualifications more clearly to consumers. In addition, attendees were able to network and share best practices with their fellow dealers.

“We’re delighted to have introduced the all-new Trane Comfort Specialist program during our annual conference,” said Dale Green, vice president and general manager, dealer and distributor channel, Trane Residential Solutions. “When we say the program is completely new, we mean it. Now the members of our elite dealer force have full access to the power of the Trane brand, from marketing and advertising, to products, and leads. We’ve also created an education path that grows and changes with each Trane Comfort Specialist dealer to ensure they’re on the path to success.”

General Colin L. Powell, United States Army Retired, delivered the closing keynote address. According to his Leadership Primer, “Organization doesn’t really accomplish anything. Plans don’t accomplish anything, either. Theories of management don’t much matter. Endeavors succeed or fail because of the people involved. Only by attracting the best people will you accomplish great deeds.”
