Butcher’s President, John Butcher, stated, “In filling this role, my goal was to find a candidate with the right balance of skills, experience, and personality to get the best fit possible for our company. I think we have that in Dan, and I think you will enjoy working with him. He is an intelligent, hard-working, personable guy who will build strong relationships.”

Dan Schlund has an extensive operational and sales background. After four years in the U.S. Marine Corp, Dan entered the HVAC industry and has been there for sixteen years. In those sixteen years, he spent eleven years in wholesale distribution and most recently, five years with Mitsubishi. Dan had a multitude of roles in that time: warehousing, counter sales, territory manager, branch manager, and sales management roles on multiple levels. In addition, while working full time, Dan received his Bachelor of Science degree in business psychology and a Master of Business Administration.

Dan succeeds Tom Roland, who had been very fortunate to have had a healthy, prosperous 32 year career with both The Trane Company and Butcher Distributors. Tom received much satisfaction in seeing Butcher’s customers improve their businesses and having that translate to their employees as well as the personal relationships and wonderful experiences he’s had with these dealers.

“I am honored to have been selected as Butcher Distributors next Vice President,” Dan said. “It is a privilege to be part of an organization that for the last 70 years has delivered high quality products and services and one that offers innovative solutions to their dealers.”
