Foreman Focus Friday: Darren Holmquist

December 29th 2017

Early on, Darren Holmquist wanted to become a car mechanic. He enjoyed working on engines and troubleshooting mechanical problems, but like many others in the trade, he found working with HVAC systems to be very similar and the new career choice seemed to make sense.

Now as Hermanson’s North-End HVAC Service Foreman, Darren enjoys tackling customers’ problems by troubleshooting their mechanical systems to find solutions. With almost 30 years under his belt, his industry experience ensures that he can quickly identify and resolve mechanical & plumbing issues, keeping the customer’s experience smooth and hassle-free. He finds customer satisfaction to be his primary motivation and takes pride in providing quality customer service.

Darren considers safety to be the most important part of his job and has adopted Hermanson’s “Safety: An Attitude for Life” motto into his daily work. As a single father of three, his goal is to return home in the same condition he left in – “I have children that rely on me, so being safe on the job and getting home in one piece is my main focus every day.”

Outside of work, Darren’s three children keep him busy! He has two teenage sons, Jared and Jacob, and a four-year-old daughter, Ava. He spends most of his time with his kids, but when he has time, Darren likes to get out on the boat and fish or head to the shooting range to sharpen his skills.

Thank you, Darren! We appreciate your dedication to serving customers and especially to “thinking safety” every day!
