The Progress of Goettl

In June this year, the BizJournal made a publication on the announcement made by Goettl Air Conditioning about the purchase of SoCal based HVAC company dubbed Walton’s Heating and Air. However, the company did not disclose its financial details. Both companies are family owned businesses. Goettl is located in Tucson, Phoenix, and Las Vegas while Walton’s operates from Southern California. This acquisition put Goettl in a better position to solidify its presence in California. More so, Walton’s has been able to grow in a tremendous way which could not have been possible if it was on its own.


Todd Longbrake, the owner of Walton’s, disclosed that his company had been stagnant for a while, but the deal with Goettl enabled the company to grow in ten-folds. Todd was assimilated into Goettl and is now a field supervisor and sales manager in the corporation. Goettl showed interests in working with Walton’s, but Longbrake was quite reluctant. It is the good reputation of Goettl and that of its owner, Ken Goodrich that gave him the motivation to sign the deal. It took two years for Ken to announce on AZ Central the acquisition. This delay was due to operational issues and marketing complications that surrounded Walton’s at the time of merging. By the date of making the announcement, all these problems had been sorted out, and the company was recording progress. Goettl and Walton’s similar values and family background made it easy for Longbrake to be assimilated into Goettl’s culture.


Currently, Goettl consists of 306 employees and hopes to create 200 additional jobs especially for the Tucson and Phoenix branches. According to PR News, these two branches are the largest markets for the company. The projected plans are to penetrate into the northern California and later on into the Texas market by next year.


Goettl AC was established in 1939 by Gust and Adam Goettl. The two brothers began by developing the first refrigerated AC and evaporative cooler in Phoenix. This invention was in an attempt to help ease the severe desert temperatures in the region. For many years, the company has been committed to shaping the AC and heating industry. Goettl has remained a leader in the HVAC industry because of its constant innovations that match up the changing technology. The company also boasts of highly skilled HVAC technicians who go through continuous and rigorous training. Additionally, all its technicians are Sadie Certified. The Goettl’s also held over 100 patents.

Jeremy Goldstein says that stock options are more or less like gambling because it can become worthless overnight and has the power to make you a millionaire and even billionaire in some cases.

For companies, however, providing stock options to the employees have some disadvantages as explained by Jeremy. He says that the tax burden of the enterprise increases drastically and the cost of maintaining records can eclipse the profits of giving out stock options.

Many companies also don’t want to give out their shares to the employees as they feel the stocks can be of tremendous value in the future, and that giving out better salary is a much better option.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Proves That Continuity Pays Off

When Luiz Carlos Trabuco began working at Bradesco in 1969 as a clerk at the age of 20, he quickly learned the bank’s culture of continuity. His skills allowed him to rise through the ranks, becoming president in 2009.

He led Bradesco Seguros from 2003 to 2009 before becoming president, proving his executive leadership ability, which was needed as he took over Bradesco as chief executive officer of the Board of Directors, just after the private bank and financial services firm lost its prestigious top position as the largest private bank in Brazil to rival Itaú Unibanco. Being in first place was not Trabuco’s goal as he took the bank’s reigns; he was more interested in focusing on serving clients in all of the Brazilian municipalities the bank currently serves.

Losing its market leadership status was a blow to Bradesco’s honor; however, Trabuco was content to bide his time and not worry about being first, since there was an unfavorable economic environment in Brazil at the time. Trabuco waited until 2015 to buy, with the board’s approval, the Brazilian branch of HSBC. Now Trabuco has Bradesco poised to regain its position to lead the nation’s banks in deposits and total investment funds. He told Money that purchasing HSBC for $5.2 billion was the equivalent of six years worth of organic growth. The move was lauded by his peers, earning Trabuco DINHEIRO’s Entrepreneur of the Year award. Obviously, Luiz Carlos Trabuco was looking to the long-term success of the bank, not wanting to waste resources acquiring assets that would not help Bradesco’s position.

A graduate of the University of São Paulo and an experienced executive the financial world, Luiz Carlos Trabuco had innovative ideas that he put into effect after becoming CEO. Seeking a dialog with the bank’s executives, Trabuco invited them in the Noble Hall to state their position and their currently strategy for their department. Bradesco’s executives were also granted them autonomy to do their jobs as they see fit. Another of Luiz Carlos Trabuco’s fresh ideas was to open a corporate university to customize leadership training. As a department director, managing officer and an executive vice president, Trabuco also showed inventiveness, implementing Bradesco Prime, which serves the bank’s wealthiest clients with exceptional service and opening up to the media when he was in charge of publicity, implementing a policy of transparency.

An energetic and enterprising person, Luiz Carlos Trabuco spends 11 hours a day, on average, at the bank. Afterwards, he frequently attends business dinners, which extend his working day even further. Married, and the father of three children, Trabuco lives a simple life without any extravagant habits. Perhaps his studying philosophy during his university years contributes to his calm nature.

His longtime employer appreciates Trabuco; the bank values his experience. He is CEO of the Bradesco Organization’s other companies as well. Once invited by President Dilma Rousseff to head of the Ministry of Finance, Trabuco declined the offer. As one of his peers said, “Trabuco was born to work for Bradesco.”
