Back in 1994, job postings were listed in newspapers. That’s where Gustavo Loaiza, New Construction Manager, first heard about Mitchell Cooling + Heating 27 years ago.
“I saw an ad for a helper in heating and air,” Gus said. “Chris (Mitchell) provided training so I gave it a chance.”
With lots of energy and a can-do attitude to do whatever it takes to get things done, Gus remains happy at how long he’s continued to enjoy the job. After nearly 30 years on the Mitchell Cooling + Heating team, he hasn’t looked back.
For him, every day is something new. Each construction project is a different challenge, requiring expertise to work with the unique demands of each commercial or residential builder and their specific construction timeline.
While each project is different, Gus’s workday has a consistency he enjoys. In the mornings, he helps his teammates load up their trucks by helping stock their equipment and material. After loading, he meets team members at the worksites to help during installations and ensure there are no installation hiccups. Afterward, Gus meets builders and contractors that need his HVAC expertise. In the afternoons, he starts preparing for the next day.
The most rewarding part of Gus’s job is the work, great coworkers, and customers he has the chance to help.
What does Gus attribute as the key for a successful 27 years in HVAC?
“Be prepared to work hard, and find a good boss so it makes the work easier,” he says.
Gus has been married to his wife, Martha, for 40 years. They have two grown children and two grandchildren.
The couple enjoys spending lots of time together, watching the grandkids play soccer, and having family dinners. The entire family is Atlanta United FC fans.
