Jeff Bechtel, Director of Service & Controls
With more than 30 years of hands-on HVAC/Controls experience, Jeff Bechtel has been Andy J. Egan Co.’s Director of Service & Controls since 2004. Early in his career, he attended Kalamazoo Valley Community College while working as a full-time service technician. Jeff has also had specialty training at both the national and local levels. Jeff held service manager and vice president roles at other companies within the industry prior to joining Egan. At Egan, he has helped establish and grow a strong presence for the company’s Service and Controls Group, including an office in Kalamazoo. Today he leads a very skilled team of more than 40 HVAC service, building controls, industrial controls professionals and support staff, which has been awarded several national, industry-recognized achievements, such as the MSCA Green Star Certification and the MSCA National Energy Solutions Award. His diverse knowledge of systems and building facilities aids his biggest strength: his ability see things differently and identify opportunities for improvement. Jeff’s greatest success at work has been watching the Egan Service and Controls team excel in customer service while providing industry-leading solutions to help achieve clients’ goals. His biggest personal success, however, has been raising three children – plus golden retrievers -- with his wife.
