Patrick Tarre- Operations Manager

patrickPatrick has been with the company for the past ten years. During these last 10 years, Arnold Service Company has grown and he has had a chance to grow with it. Patrick started as an Installation Mechanic and from there he moved up to an Installation Manager, to a Sales Consultant, to my current position here as an Operations Manager. As the Operations Manager, my roles involve overseeing all projects in the commercial division, as well as day to day operations of Arnold Service Company.

This is where he worked with his father in the family business, Chris Tarre Heating and Cooling. After attending McKeesport High School and working with my father for many years, he relocated here to Fayetteville, NC and has been a part of the family here at Arnold Service Company ever since. I say “family” because that’s what we have here. A family of friends, where you’re not “just a number”. I believe that Arnold Service Company offers an invaluable opportunity for those in the HVAC industry because there’s always room to grow. We take a great deal of pride in providing quality service to our customers, so give us a call, and join our family.
