Get to know your RETOOL TEAM - Mike Oddo

Where do you live?

I live in Grain Valley, Mo., just 20 miles east of downtown Kansas City.

Which states do you cover?

Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Colorado, and parts of Indiana and Kentucky.

What made you want to be on the RETOOL Team?

Initially, I was intrigued by the idea of working for a great company like Newell Rubbermaid. Then when I saw the job was representing and selling HVAC/R diagnostic equipment, I knew the opportunity was for me.

Why should HVAC/R techs retool with hilmor?

Well, they’re new, innovative, and backed by quality engineering. You could say they’re taking everyday tools to another level.

You’re from Kansas City, where’s the best place to get BBQ?

That’s tough, as we have a dozen or more quality places to get good BBQ. Anyone coming to Kansas City should definitely try Arthur Bryant’s, which is a landmark. A close second in my book would be Gates and Zarda BBQ.

What’s your favorite part of driving your RETOOL truck?

There’s nothing like arriving at an event, distributor or contractor’s shop for the first time and seeing their expression. Before I leave, they definitely know how serious we are about making an impact on the HVAC/R industry.
