CRANSTON, R.I. — At the 2016 AHR Expo, Taco CEO John White Jr. presented the Dan Holohan Lifetime Contribution to Comfort Award to Dan Holohan. The award’s inaugural presentation to its namesake was called by White, “just one small token of appreciation for a lifetime of tireless commitment to improving the trade and — in no small measure — homeowner and business employee comfort, nationally.”

White presented the award to Holohan during Taco’s press briefing just before the opening of this year’s AHR Expo in Orlando, Florida.

The award will be given each year to an HVAC professional or company that has made a substantial contribution to comfort technology, advancement, or training while displaying the exceptional good humor and love of people exhibited by Holohan throughout his long career.

“In essence, this award becomes an extension of who Dan is,” said White. “After all, Dan is now retiring after 46 years in the industry. Those of us who’ve known him, and many people have, know Dan is one of the greatest, most selfless, and caring folks in our business.”

Holohan said, “I’m just so fortunate to have had such a long and exciting career, one with so many friends and fine memories. But now it’s good to get off the road and to relax. I envision the day when someone will ask, ‘Who was that guy?’”
