However, it is their commitment to the AC Pro mission of caring for people that makes them successful leaders.
Get to know our management team below, and see what they have to say about life at AC Pro.
Dion Quinn began his working career in the insulation industry in 1980. In 1985, he started Material Supply, Inc. (MSI). MSI began out of a small garage in Anaheim, California as a contracting company focused on commercial and industrial insulation. A year later, the company moved into selling heating and air conditioning products and has grown to be one of the premier heating and air conditioning distributors in the country. Dion’s experience as a contractor has given the company valuable insight into what a contractor wants from a distributor. Contractors want large inventories, great showrooms, reasonable prices, knowledgeable staff that genuinely care, great contractor programs, and a distributor with integrity in all matters. This insight has guided the company since its inception, and it is what makes AC Pro stand out as an ideal business partner. In 2002, Dion and his wife Petra founded God’s Kids, a non-profit organization to improve the lives of orphans around the globe by providing shelter, food, education, and a loving environment.
Blake Quinn has grown up in the heating and air conditioning industry, attending industry trade shows and working at the company during school breaks. He began his full-time career at AC Pro in 2009 as a territory manager after graduating from college with a B.S. in Business Administration. His current responsibilities include managing the marketing department, California manufacturing, engineering and AC Pro’s eCommerce department. “One of the things I enjoy most about AC Pro is we are always looking for new and innovative ways to take care of our customers,” he says.
Robert Hascall joined the AC Pro team in 2005. He oversees all aspects of information technology including network and web technologies, software development, and ERP. Prior to joining AC Pro, Robert spent 19 years at a large apparel manufacturer in the same capacity that he has at AC Pro. He spends his free time with his wife and two sons who both play ice hockey. He also supports youth ice hockey by volunteering his time at a local high school league. Robert holds a B.S. in Organizational Leadership from Azusa Pacific University.
Jon Dautrich joined AC Pro in 1997 and is the V.P. of Purchasing. Jon joined the company with nearly 10 years of experience in the residential new construction heating and air conditioning market on the contractor side and three years of experience in residential construction. He leads the purchasing department and oversees all aspects of purchasing including contract negotiation, new supplier additions, and inventory management. When asked about working at AC Pro, he says, “My favorite thing about being on the AC Pro team is knowing that I will never be asked to do anything contrary to my Christian values or the welfare of my family.”
Bob Billiu has been with the company since its inception in 1986. Bob is the V.P. of Nevada and oversees the Nevada locations, including the Nevada sales team as well as the manufacturing plant in our south Las Vegas location. “What I enjoy most about AC Pro is working for a company that operates at the highest level of integrity. While we are a large company, we still operate as a family-run business. AC Pro is a company that gives empowerment to its store managers to make decisions at the location level without any corporate red tape. This allows our team to present the highest level of customer satisfaction” Bob says.
Denise Endicott joined the AC Pro team in 2003. She brought with her over 30 years of experience in the accounting field, focused primarily in the construction industry and non-profit foundations. She says, “I am fortunate and blessed to be able to say I have developed many lifelong friendships throughout the years and that many AC Pro team members have become an extension of my family. AC Pro has an amazing team of associates that exhibit the highest integrity and honor in the industry, and I enjoy working with each one. I am involved in my home church and recently graduated from the School of Ministry. This past year I was given the opportunity to travel on a mission trip to Kenya in Africa to minister to the poor. Please drop by one of our locations. We will be happy to assist you with a smile.”
Sharon Wingate is the Regional Manager for Southern California and is responsible for the AC Pro locations in that territory. Sharon has over 30 years of management and sales experience in the Southern California HVAC distribution community, in addition to regional sales experience in the HVAC manufacturing sector. She says, “I am very excited to be part of such a wonderful group of associates all working together to provide the highest customer service experience for our customers. Everyone here really cares and values not only our customers but our co-workers as well. It’s the way I grew up in the business–taking care of our customers and earning their trust.”
