HVAC & Electrical Contractor Sticks with ServiceTitan to Grow Residential in 2020

When Derek Baer joined Gold Shield Services as office manager in 2018, he had no experience in the HVAC or electrical trades. He had applied for the company’s HVAC technician position, expecting to receive training on the job. “I wanted to do general contracting my whole life,” Baer says. “I love building stuff and tinkering with things. I had been following (Gold Shield) for about a year and a half. It was a small company with a lot of growth potential and really good reviews.”
