Heating, Air-conditioning & Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI), Columbus, Ohio, this week announced four new members of the 2021 board of directors.

  • Director: Loran Liu, Standard Supply & Distributing Company Inc., Dallas, Texas
  • Director: Brian Blaushild, Famous Enterprises, Akron, Ohio
  • Director: Michael Gallagher, Design Air LLC, Kimberly, Wisconsin
  • Chair: Jim Luce of Luce, Schwab and Kase Inc., Fairfield, New Jersey.

This slate was approved by HARDI’s distributor membership during a vote at the 2020 Virtual HARDI Summit. The four new directors replace Greg Toler, Andrew Barton, Steve Carboni and Tom Boutette, whose terms have ended.

“The addition of Loran, Brian, and Michael is the latest achievement of the governance model installed by the Board in 2018,” says HARDI CEO, Talbot Gee. “This year’s was perhaps our most impressive set of candidates and Loran, Brian, and Michael bring unique talents and experiences specifically sought by our Nominating Committee. Their diverse skill sets will make immediate impacts on the next stage of HARDI’s strategic direction and growth, and our efforts to further wholesale distribution’s share of the HVACR channel.”

The new directors will join the other five directors and will serve a three-year term, while the new chair serves for one year.
