Get to know your RETOOL TEAM — Ryan Cotton

Where do you live?

I live in Pasadena, California.

Which states will you cover?

My territory includes Ariz., Calif., Idaho, Mont., Nev., Ore., Wash., Wyo., and Utah.

What made you want to be on the RETOOL Team?

One of the reasons I wanted to be part of the hilmor RETOOL team was to have the opportunity to travel to all of the great states in the West. I have not had a chance to travel out West, and I’m looking forward to meeting some great people. So, since the hilmor RETOOL Team allows me to meet great people, travel to all kinds of neat places and provide quality tools to craftsmen who need them, I’m quite happy.

Why should HVAC/R techs retool with hilmor?

hilmor will be bringing quality tools with innovative new features that are going to make your job easier, faster and ultimately more profitable.

What would your friends say about you?

I’m very friendly and always willing to talk to anyone. I’m a positive person, and it takes quite a bit to get me down. Basically, the way I look at life is that the valuable things are the friendships we have. And since we only have a limited amount of time, we may as well be as happy as possible. I let the little stuff roll off my shoulders, and I make friends with anyone who will have me.

Word on the street is that you like the outdoors. What types of activities?

I really like walking just about anywhere, whether it’s on trails or city streets. I like the water, too. If I can surf, dive or sail, I’m a happy camper.
