As with all of The SEER Group companies, Evergreen Gas, Heating & Cooling will retain its brand, and Kelsey and Bill Belden will continue leading the company as partners.
“We see increasing growth opportunities throughout the Northwest, organically and through strategic acquisitions,” stated Darrin Erdahl, CEO and Founder of The SEER Group . “In our continual search for the right partners who share our values, we felt strongly that Kelsey and Bill would be a natural fit for our group. We are delighted to have them, along with each team member at Evergreen, join our SEER Group family,” he added.
“With twenty-seven unique brands now part of The SEER Group , one common thread is that they all share a desire and commitment to continually enhancing the customer experience while providing opportunities for each individual team member,” said Eric Beardemphl, president of The SEER Group . He added, “Kelsey and Bill exemplify these values, and have created distinctive market opportunities for Evergreen. We are extremely excited to partner with them and work together in continuing their positive growth trend.”
When asked for comment about their partnership with The SEER Group , Kelsey and Bill Belden responded, “Evergreen is a special company built on exceptional core values, hard work, and strong character. When we considered bringing on a partner, it was essential that they mirrored our style of business and had like-minded intentions for our staff. From our initial conversation it was clear that SEER would be the best fit, and put us at ease with any concerns we had for our team’s future. It has been a pleasure working with a group of investors that have the strength and knowledge of how to do business well, not just fiscally, but more importantly, with genuine care for people. We look forward to a long-term partnership with the SEER team!”
