Sales and Design Supervisor

Matt came to us less than a year ago as a Comfort Consultant. He got his start over 10 years ago in his family company. Since his introduction into the business he has worked his way up from an install helper, to a technician, and then to a project manager. He knows his way around heating and cooling units, which makes him perfect to take on the role as a Comfort Consultant.

Matt said that making the change over to Conditioned Air Solutions has been an easy and exciting one. “I like the employees. I really like the fact that, with this many people, we all have the same goal in mind, doing the best job possible for the customer. That makes us a real team.

The thing that drives him the most in his job is that he likes meeting new people. One of his favorite quotes is by Charlie “Tremendous” Jones, “You will be the same person in five years as you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read.”

On Christmas one year Matt had a call from one of his technicians that could not figure out a problem. The customer had his unit fixed no less than 6 times in a year by other companies and no one else could locate the problem. It turns out there was a squirrel in the drywall that had a nest and had eaten away part of the thermostat wire. “We got him fixed up and running that day. To this day it is still one of my favorite service calls.”

Matt has been here in North Alabama for 25 years. He was born and raised in Rome Georgia. He has been married for 10 years and has 4 wonderful children. When he is not at work he can be found fishing. He enjoys tournament fishing. “When I go out I call it catching because I am not just fishing, I’m catching that is what I do.”

He enjoys sports and can be found cheering for the Dallas Cowboy and the Kentucky Wildcats. Growing up he had a great friend that helped him play sports and they always watched those games together. He can also be found yelling “Roll Tide” for the University of Alabama.

If he could have one super power it would be the ability to make people better. “A Healing power would be very beneficial.”

We are glad that Matt has made the decision to come to Conditioned Air Solutions.
