Vince DiFilippo, center, received the 2015 NCI David Debien Award, for his commitment to learning, strong technical skills, and teaching others in his company to test and measure HVAC system performance. The NCI awards were presented by Dominick Guarino, left, and Rob Falke.

The NCI "Leader Board" is a performance tracking system that compares member companies to one another. As a benchmarking system, it sets up friendly competition between member technicians.

“One-way to force ourselves to reach higher, stretch further, and achieve more, is to see how our efforts compare with those of peers. The Leader Board is a helpful tool in achieving this comparison. This performance tracking system encourages team participation and invites individual recognition," said Dominick Guarino, NCI Chairman and CEO.
