The award’s inaugural presentation to its namesake, Dan Holohan, was called, by White, “just one small token of appreciation for a lifetime of tireless commitment to improving the trade and – in no small measure – homeowner, and business employee comfort, nationally.”
White presented the award to a broadly smiling ad appreciative Dan Holohan during Taco’s press brief just before the show opened.
The award will be given each year to an HVAC professional or company that has made a substantial contribution to comfort technology, advancement or training while displaying the exceptional good humor and love of people exhibited by Dan Holohan throughout his long career.
Holohan said that “I’m just so fortunate to have had such a long and exciting career, one with so many friends and fine memories. But now it’s good to get off the road and to relax. I envision the day when someone will ask, ‘Who was that guy?’”
The answer to that question, in part, will be the legacy of this award.
