Brad Morari, partner at HVAC Company Goettl Air Conditioning in (Phoenix, AZ, U.S.) passed away on Dec. 1, 2004. He was 51 years old.
An Arizona native, Mr. Morari started working at Goettl on the factory floor shortly after graduating from high school in 1971. He moved into sales in 1978 and then into management, becoming vice president and general manager of Goettl's Contracting and Service Group in 1997. In 2003, Mr. Morari and three other executives at Goettl - Daniel Burke, John Ryan, and Jason Fairchild - formed America Best, LLC and purchased selected assets of the company from Goettl's former owner, David Murdock.
“Brad is a classic American success story,” said Goettl's president Daniel Burke. “He started at the bottom, literally sweeping floors, and worked his way up to eventually becoming an owner of the company. He shared management's vision for the firm, and it was his leadership of our Contracting and Service division that helped make the first two years under the new management team so successful.”
Mr. Morari's management responsibilities will be divided among the remaining three partners and the experienced staff he put together.
He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Lynn, and three children.
