We have some exciting staff changes happening on Chappell Central. With some talented new staff joining us, and others with proven track records being promoted, Chappell Central is set for a fantastic 2012.
Thanks Barry Bakker for your Service!
As of January 1st, 2012 Barry Bakker has retired. Barry came to then, Chappell Duct Company from Central Sheetmetal when Chappell Duct Company purchased Central Sheetmetal in 1987. Barry is now enjoying the winter in Arizona. Barry ran the Residential and Service Departments and leaves them in very capable hands of Randy Sather, Paul Krueger, and Ron Roofs.
Paul Krueger has been with Chappell Central for 20 years and has been a great asset, first as a sheetmetal man, then as a service tech, then as a commercial startup coordinator. Now Paul is making another move to “Special Projects Salesman”. This ranges from Geothermal to anything that requires Paul’s special talents. Everyone agrees this is a great move for the company.
Matt Leese – Service Department
Matt Leese is a graduate of St. Cloud Technical HVAC program and started at Chappell Central last fall as a service technician. Matt is a young man with a strong work ethic and is a great addition to our service department. We are very fortunate to have him.
Dave Skjefte – Service Department
Dave Skjefte is a graduate of the St. Cloud Tech HVAC program and comes to us from Carlson Stewart Refrigeration in Marshall, MN. We talked to Dave several times over the last year, and he finally made the decision to join us last December. Dave is a young man with high energy and a get-it-done attitude. He is another great addition to our growing service department.
Lisa Meyer – Controller
Lisa Meyer will be joining us in February, filling the new position as controller. Lisa earned her Bachelors Degree in Speech Pathology and Accountancy at the University of South Florida. She is currently working on her CPA. Lisa comes to us after a two year stint with Price Waterhouse Cooper Florida and then Minneapolis, MN. We are looking forward to Lisa filling this much needed position.
Congrats to all our staff who are recently joining us or moving to a new role! We are excited to have such a great group of employees at Chappell Central and want to say “Thank You” to all of the people who make Chappell Central successful.
