Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating Receives Prestigious Business Group AwardMonday, August 06, 2012
SUWANEE, Ga., August 6, 2012 - Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating (Mitsubishi Electric), America's No. 1 selling brand of ductless cooling and heating technology, is pleased to announce that William Rau, senior vice president and general manager, and Bud Nardello, vice president of sales, have received the Business Group Award for outstanding growth and performance.
Presented each year by the Tokyo headquarters of Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, the award recognizes individuals within the global organization who have greatly improved sales over the previous year. To receive the award, a candidate must be nominated by the factory or the headquarters in Tokyo. In this case, the headquarters nominated both Rau and Nardello, and then submitted a one-page summary explaining the nominees' achievements. After the review process, the Business Group President decided the recipients. Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating was one of only two divisions outside of Japan to receive the award this year.
The U.S. HVAC division has consistently exceeded its own sales goals, and in 2011, Rau and Nardello produced double-digit sales growth for the division.
"It is an honor to have been presented with this award," says Rau. "As the first company to bring both split-ductless and VRF zoning technologies to the U.S., the recognition from our global offices is indicative of the huge strides we have made in introducing a new category of HVAC products to the U.S."
"The sales growth of Mitsubishi Electric cooling and heating systems is greater in the U.S. than anywhere else in the world, and we are poised for even more expansion in the coming months," says Nardello. "This award is a wonderful acknowledgement for our company's efforts to spread awareness of split-ductless and VRF zoning technologies throughout America."
