About Joe Cunningham

The only 2 time recipient of the Prestigious HVAC Contracting Business Consultant of the Year and 2015 Top Ten Most Influential People In The HVAC Industry, 2018 Australian Consultant Of The Year, Joe is the founder and president of Successtrack Network and the Technical Arts Center.

Joe started his HVAC career as one of the industry’s first “Million Dollar Men” , singlehandedly selling in excess of 1 million dollars worth of HVAC equipment per year in the highly competitive Houston, Texas market in the 1980’s.

Joe has worked at every level of the HVAC business, he has been a contractor, worked closely with distributors and manufacturers and played a pivotal role in creating and developing several premiere HVAC training programs including the Carrier Texas Tough program and Carrier’s Value Added Selling and Service Series. He was also a developer of many of the programs used by Retrotec as they developed the curriculum and course for the acclaimed Comfort Institute, a leader in the study and application of Building Science and its implementation into the HVAC industry.

Not only that, Joe is one of the few consultants and trainers in the industry to currently own and operate a successful HVAC company in the most competitive Air Conditioning market in the world, Houston, Texas.

Joe was an honorary chairman for the President’s Small Business Advisory Council under President George Bush, he served as president of the highly acclaimed Future University training academy for Contractor Success Group and was the executive producer and director of the first ever regularly scheduled nationally televised training series for the HVAC industry.

Joe was also a key player in the first wave of industry consolidation assisting Service Experts in their launch. Joe has developed proprietary training programs for the HVAC and Plumbing. He is a Strategic Training Ally for the Trane and American Standard companies, is an approved Coach and Consultant for Service Roundtable and Service Nation. Joe has personally trained over 35,000 technicians, has created more million dollar sales producers than anyone in the business and helped countless HVAC companies of all sizes to grow and prosper in any economic environment in the United States and Australia.

And now Joe has introduced the world to the Technical Arts Center, a leading training center located in Houston Texas which is the only training center in the world that can take a new entry into the HVAC Industry and turn him into a functioning maintenance technician able to run calls and make his company money in just 9 short days! And to make it better the course is now being expanded into the plumbing industry and soon to follow the electrical business as well.

There are very few people on the globe with Joe’s depth of service industry experience and ability. His classes are incomparable and have received rave reviews from every single attendee!

Joe can make any company more successful regardless of location or trade, guaranteed!
