From the Director: Paul Mynatt has Joined ACprosite!

Paul Mynatt

I’m happy to announce that Florida HVACR industry veteran and friend Paul Mynatt has agreed to represent ACprosite in the Southeast Florida market area. He will be attending and reporting on events, taking pictures, and promoting the site.

Paul has told me several times since retiring two years ago “the things I have missed are my customers, co-workers and peers that I was fortunate to meet and develop countless friendships with. The job, emails, texts, calls and meetings … not so much.”

Hopefully his responsibilities will entail catching up with old friends and making new ones rather than emails, texts, calls and meetings, though I’m sure we’ll have our share of those.

Many of you, particularly in Broward and Palm Beach Counties, remember Paul from his years with Carrier, Trane and CE.

A Tennessee native, Paul was introduced to the HVAC industry in 1978 when a friend working at the Carrier manufacturing plant in Knoxville told him they were hiring, and he applied. During his two-year stint there, he was a spray painter, machine operator and worked on assembling equipment.

His move to Southeast Florida in 1980 was triggered by a layoff at the factory and an invitation by his brother to join him in the Sunshine State. Paul interviewed for a position as parts counter associate at Carrier Florida’s North Miami Beach location and was hired, quickly advancing to Parts Store Manager at the Carrier Riviera Beach Branch.

In 1985 Paul transitioned to outside sales for the Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie counties market area.

After a one-year stint in 1990 as an Account Manager for Rheem Distributor Modern Supply in Tennessee, Paul returned to South Florida, closing out his career when he retired from CE Florida in 2022, always as Account Manager for the same territory: Broward and Palm Beach counties.

I look forward to working with Paul, joining him making the rounds in South Florida and hearing him say his favorite words when asked why he’s seeing people again: “hi, my name is Paul, have we met?”
