Goettl Air Conditioning, a leading heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) company in Arizona, is celebrating a number of monumental anniversaries throughout 2014, including its own 75th anniversary and 25 years with its CEO and former president Dan Burke.
More than half of Phoenix’s 133-year history has included Goettl Air Conditioning. The company was founded in Phoenix on Feb. 14, 1939 by brothers Adam and Gust Goettl, who sought to deliver an effective means of keeping Arizona residents cool during the hot summer months. The company has grown tremendously since that time, and is now a staple brand of Arizona.
HVAC-industry veteran and managing partner Kenneth D. Goodrich purchased Goettl in December 2012. Goodrich, who has built several successful HVAC and Plumbing companies throughout the Southwest over the last 20 years, asked then-president Burke to take on the role of CEO to help realize his vision for the company.
“Goettl has had a long history with the great state of Arizona, and we look forward to another successful 75 years in the future,” said Goodrich. “With Dan’s experience and commitment, we’re going to continue to do great things for our industry and our community.”
Burke started with Goettl in 1989, serving then as the company’s president. He came to Goettl with several years of industry experience, and used his leadership and devotion to his craft to make the company an integral part of Arizona’s HVAC community.
Under Goodrich and Burke’s leadership, Goettl has been acknowledged for its excellence in HVAC installation and service. The company was recently recognized as a finalist for the 2014 Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce IMPACT Award, and within the last year the company received praise from Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton. Just recently, Goettl was honored with a special recognition by Governor Janice K. Brewer, acknowledging the company’s 75 years of service to the state.
