MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Redwood Services announced that John Conway has joined Redwood as its chief operating officer to help guide and direct Redwood’s strategy of identifying, acquiring, and growing partner companies.
Conway was most recently a part of the member-owned Nexstar Network, where he spent the past six years as an HVAC coach and resource.
“As a recognized and well-respected leader in the industry, John’s personal relationships with some of the best HVAC owners and operators in the country, as well as his depth of knowledge, should help us continue to attract and provide unmatched ongoing support to Redwood partner companies,” said Richard Lewis, CEO of Redwood Services. “In addition to his experience as both a successful operator and strategic leader, John shares a passion for people – the cornerstone of Redwood’s focus. We are very excited to welcome him to the team.”
Conway has been involved in the HVAC and plumbing industries for more than 27 years. He began his career in Memphis working for his father’s small HVAC company in 1994. In 1998, he purchased the business, growing it to $10-million-dollar in sales by 2010. After selling the business in 2010, John remained with the company as general manager and grew annual revenues to over $20 million.
“I am thrilled to join Redwood Services and help deliver on the dream of building a network of passionate, people-focused companies,” said Conway. “We see so much opportunity to attract likeminded owners and operators to join us in delivering a better service experience for their customers. Redwood can provide the capital and expertise for our partners to expand their markets by providing quality customer focused service with trained technicians and state-of-the-art equipment.”
