Orlando, April 24, 2024 — Carrier’s three-day National Factory Authorized Dealer Meeting and awards celebration concluded last week with over 400 dealers receiving the Carrier’s President’s Award and three emerging as top award recipients. Desmond Howard, former NFL wide receiver and return specialist, delivered the keynote speech. Carrier is a part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), a global leader in intelligent climate and energy solutions.

At the event, Carrier inducted Greg Harnist and Tim Corcoran, Corcoran & Harnist of Cincinnati, OH, and John Ambrosino, Total Temperature Control of Wakefield, MA, into its Dealer Hall of Fame. Fred Habegger, Habegger Corporation, received the Carrier Distributor Lifetime Achievement Award. Both awards were established to recognize dealers and distributors who exemplify exceptional leadership in business management, customer satisfaction, HVAC expertise, and operational excellence.

The meeting also served as a training opportunity with education-packed sessions led by industry experts. Each course provided credit hours toward participants’ Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer designation, Carrier’s rigorous standard that requires designees to maintain industry licenses and insurance, pass extensive training requirements, and maintain exemplary scores in customer service. Training topics covered the upcoming refrigerant change, generational selling and profitability, branding and marketing with a focus on social media, and more.

“The national dealer meeting is an annual reminder that we truly have the best dealers in the industry,” said Nick Arch, VP and GM of Residential Solutions, Carrier. “Their ongoing commitment to excellence in service, sales, and brand loyalty is unmatched. Congratulations to our Hall of Fame inductees, our Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, and all of our President’s Award winners.”
