A conversation with flourishing companies — Excel Heating & Cooling, Inc. and Sigora Solar — Tuesday, May 12, 2020
We are in uncharted waters these days. With many new obstacles on top of an economic downturn, much of the future is unclear. But one thing is certain: enduring this crisis will require a lot of skillful planning and hard work — and we need to leverage every resource we’ve got if we want to get through this. Thriving post-COVID-19 depends on whether we use this time wisely to set ourselves up for success moving forward. In this webinar, Pearl Contractor Partners Logan Landry, CEO and founder of Sigora Solar, and Jay Monger, CEO of Excel Cooling shared their experiences navigating these new waters. They talked about everything from aid packages to employee and customer safety to working in and around homes to how they’re preparing to thrive on the other side and more.
