    Ep 64. Generating Innovation in Family Business with Guests Lawrence & Michael Wetzel of Air Innovations

    Ep 64 - Generating Innovation in Family Business 
    Listen in as members of the Wetzel* family, Lawrence & Michael*, of Air Innovations discuss the need to constantly seek the advice of others, Michael’s unique entry into the family business and a fun story about an exciting design they developed for a major Las Vegas attraction.  
     
    OUR GUESTS 
    Lawrence E. Wetzel, P.E*
    Lawrence E. Wetzel is an engineer, an inventor and a businessman. He earned a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Pennsylvania State University, and BA in Mathematics from St. Vincent College. He is a Licensed Professional Engineer in the States of New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and California, and holds five U.S. patents and one European patent. 
    Starting as a junior engineer for a mechanical contractor, he quickly rose to become President of a division. In 1983, he founded Clean Room Technology and rapidly built it into an international business with sales of $20 million. After merging his company in 1989 with the French company Clestra, he spent the next several years as Chairman of Clestra worldwide cleanroom operations with sales of more than $40 million. 
    In 1994, Mr. Wetzel co-founded Exponential Business Development Company and raised over $5 million in capital to invest in entrepreneurial emerging companies in Upstate New York. In 2002, Exponential was merged with a NYC venture capital firm. 
    Early in 1996, Mr. Wetzel and his son, Michael, acquired controlling interest in Floratech Industries, a manufacturer of refrigerated floral display cases for supermarkets. Early on, the Wetzel’s began expanding their product offerings, such as an innovative new air conditioning product, called HEPAir, for the indoor air quality market. In 1999, Floratech acquired the air conditioning manufacturing division back from Clestra and in 2001 changed its name to Air Innovations to better reflect its broader mission.  
    During this same period, Mr. Wetzel became the part-time Chairman and CEO of a Rochester, NY based software development company called Verax Systems. Mr. Wetzel successfully turned the struggling company around and in 1999 sold it to a division of Siemens AG. 
    Mr. Wetzel is active in many philanthropic and business organizations in the Central NY community. He and his wife, Glenda, reside in Cazenovia, NY and enjoy travel, boating, and biking. They also enjoy renovating older real estate properties, such as an 1820 farmhouse on Nantucket Island, an 1865 house in Charleston, SC and the latest is an 1810 post and beam cottage in Cazenovia. 
    Michael Wetzel*
    Michael Wetzel is President and CEO of Air Innovations. Wetzel is a graduate of Clarkson University where he received a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering. He is a licensed Professional Engineer and is the holder of seven US patents. 
    Prior to Air Innovations, Wetzel was based in Strasbourg, France for four years working for a multinational company building cleanrooms in Europe and the Mideast. Previously he worked stateside as an engineering manager in the HVAC construction industry. Since joining the company as president and CEO in 1996, and after he and his father Larry acquired controlling interest in Floratech Industries, Wetzel has grown Air Innovations from a company focused solely on floral coolers to one that addresses wide variety of refrigeration, air conditioning, and filtration needs. 
    About Air Innovations 
    Air Innovations is a world leader in designing and building environmental process control systems for applications that can’t be addressed with standard HVAC equipment. They customize packaged solutions for temperature, humidity, filtration, pressurization, and with direct-expansion, chilled-water, or thermoelectric capabilities.

    Ep 61 - How to Flourish as a Family Business 

    Could there possibly be any common denominators between the family room, the board room and the war room? Founder of the Gardin Group Rachel Llanes* knows so!
    Listen into this episode of the Family Biz Show to learn about advanced leadership concepts family business owners need to know to help their companies flourish. 
     

    OUR GUEST 

    RACHEL LLANES*


    Rachel is the Founder and Lead Gardiner of The Gardin Group.  

    She helps leaders solve their people problems (e.g. disengagement, burnout, accountability, and communication issues). Rachel has her master’s in counseling and has developed and delivered training on peak performance, resilience, and leadership for a diverse array of organizations, from Fortune 50 companies to government agencies, the US military and beyond. Her vision and mission in life is to translate what science knows of human flourishing into non-psychobabble bottom line behaviors anyone can immediately start integrating into how they live, love and lead. For the past decade, she has guided, instructed and coached members of the armed forces, from commanding generals, to green berets, to postpartum soldiers. Today, most of her clients are C-suite executives committed to creating the best cultures possible for their people.   

    When she isn’t pouring through literature on leadership, Rachel can be found rappelling down the cliffs of Hawaii’s mountains, or diving deep beneath its shores with her Navy SEAL husband, Cody. He tries to keep up ;)
