“Woman of the Year”

Featuring Colleen Keyworth

Intro: Welcome to Profiles In Prosperity. The leading podcast for residential service contractors, sponsored by Service Roundtable and hosted by David Heimer.

David Heimer: Hi everybody this is David Heimer. Welcome Profiles In Prosperity. Today I’m talking with Colleen Keyworth. Colleen is the director of sales and marketing for Online Access, which is an HVAC web marketing company located in Michigan. And let me just say, they are partners of Service Nation. Online Access is a fabulous company. I’ve worked with them for years, and I just think the world of them, I recommend them all the time to people. They’re the nicest people in the world. And whenever you work with them, you get the sense that they are really worried about your success. And it’s true, that’s the kind of people they are, so just a little segue there. Colleen grew up in our industry, the family owned and HVAC and plumbing business, so she has a really clear understanding of contracting and also the realities that come with owning and operating a profitable business.

Colleen has an impressive list of awards. She was named to the ACHR News 2019, top 40, under 40. She is the Vice President and on the board of directors for the women in HVACR for the last six years. And a side note here, during this time when she was on the board, the organization has grown from a hundred to over 500 members. So very impressive. She is on the board of the Southeast Michigan Air Conditioning Contractors Association. And last year she was named the Service World Expo Woman of the year, so really fantastic stuff. Colleen, welcome to Profiles In Prosperity.
