Richard Hughes / Co-Owner
I started in the Air Conditioning business in 1996 when Apex-Aire, Inc. hired me. I started answering the phones and filing. After a couple of years I then moved on to Account Payable and Accounts Receivables. From there I began scheduling, General Ledger and eventually bidding in 2003. I proved myself to my boss and worked my way to Office Manager. In April of 2014 Apex-Aire, Inc. went out of business due to the owner’s age of 89. He did not want to sell the company so he gave me the customer list and I still lease the office in which I have always worked. Also, I kept the same phone number and hit the ground running with my new company Booker Mechanical, LLC and business partner James Booker in April 2015.
