The Benefits of Building Relationships And Persistent Learning: Industry All-Stars

 

This is the first episode of Industry All-Stars. We’re going to be diving into the careers, career paths, and passions of the people that are all-stars in the industries we cover here at MarketScale. To kick off the series, Host Tyler Kern talked with long-time friend and colleague Greg Crumpton, Vice President of Critical Environments and Facilities at Service Logic, about building his career on relationships and continuous learning.

Crumpton, who also co-hosts Straight Outta Crumpton with Kern, didn’t necessarily intend for his career to be in airconditioning. Raised by two hard-working parents, Crumpton eventually followed his father’s footsteps into HVAC. While most kids wanted to do kid stuff, he always found he wanted to go to work with his Dad. While school wasn’t the best fit for him, he was fortunate enough to get into a union apprenticeship program in HVAC and air conditioning.

 “My Dad was an instructor at the school, so maybe he gave somebody $50 bucks to get me in there,” Crumpton said jokingly.

All jokes aside, Crumpton took to learning HVAC. It made sense to him, and he had been exposed to it for a long time as a kid. He recalls working on the plumbing and HVAC in his grandparent’s house when he was growing up.

“One thing leads to another. I get out of the apprenticeship program, and I go to work for an awesome company,” Crumpton said. He followed this company to Charlotte before starting his own company. Eventually, he sold his company to Service Logic, where it landed him in a role.
