When COVID-19 hit and the world was divided up into essential and non-essential workers, it shone a new light on the mechanical industry, and specifically the service sector. Join John and Kip Bagley (Senior VP of Service, EMCOR Services Mesa Energy Systems; Co-Chair, Mechanical Service Contractors of America (MSCA) Board of Managers) on Friday, August 14 at 2 p.m. EDT as they discuss how the circumstances of 2020 have impacted recruitment, perception of the industry, and what it means to be of service.

After a career spent overseeing the transformation of an industry, Jon Danuser retired from MCAA member Johnson Controls in June 2020.

As Jon embarks on this new chapter in his life, he said, “What I am going to miss the most is all of the people I have had the privilege to work with and the customers we served over the years.”
