Following news of Airmaster staff being named as finalists for the CCN HVAC&R Leadership awards we will be profiling each our nominees over the coming weeks.
Jason Harrison, Airmaster’s NSW State Manager has been named as a finalist for Male Rising Star Award.
What are your responsibilities at Airmaster?
I am responsible for leading the NSW branch of Airmaster, which encompasses all aspects of our maintenance, service and projects delivery for our customers. Part of my role is ensuring that the way we undertake the delivery of our services is efficient, but also flexible in order to meet the individual and unique needs of our customers.
How long have you been in the industry and with Airmaster?
I have been in the BMS and HVAC industry for just over 10 years now. I started my apprenticeship and training with Honeywell Ltd in 2007, before commencing with Airmaster in 2013 joining our BMS and Technology services. From there I moved into my current role as NSW State Manager in 2016. I have a trade in Instrumentation and Control and am currently completing the final year of my Bachelor of Engineering degree, majoring in Mechatronic Engineering.
What are the most rewarding and challenging parts of your job?
The most rewarding part of my job is working with lots of great people who are at different stages both professionally and personally, and help them deliver a great technical and innovative result for our customers. The current apprentice program we are driving in NSW has also been rewarding. It is nice seeing not only the apprentices get involved but also the technicians and account managers who train and mentor them. The most challenging part is keeping up to date with the latest technology to ensure we are becoming more efficient, effective and compliant through the delivery of our services.
What are you working on now and what is your next big project?
I am currently working on the delivery of our Combined Value Proposition, which enables a smarter service through the use the latest technologies mixed with the ‘older’ service delivery models. My next big project is focusing on areas that help continue to train and develop our apprentices and technicians with the ever-downward ‘time’ pressure.
What are your favourite sporting teams?
The West Tigers Rugby League Club and the Western Magic AFL Team (Local NSW Club).
