Dave Holdorf is Taco’s newest trainer. Holdorf will work closely with John Barba, Taco’s residential training and trade programs manager, while also helping to extend the reach of the firm’s training effort.
Holdorf is already at work for Taco in the field, offering training at rep, distributor and contractor locations. “Already, Dave is working closely with our many allied rep trainers to support and enhance the overall local Taco training efforts – making a new asset available to them to enhance their existing training efforts already in place,” said Mark Chaffee, director of marketing, residential products.
Holdorf will also assist John Barba at Taco’s new world class, state-of-the-art Innovation and Development Center where industry training is a focal point.
“Dave brings a lot of talent, experience and energy to our training mission here at Taco,” said Barba. “There’s no shortage of need. We see endless opportunities to for him to interact with and better educate our customers. We’ll all learn as he adds new flair and insights to Taco’s customer outreach.”
Holdorf has served in the hydronic industry for 15+ years, chiefly focused on radiant business at Uponor. There he served as technical support/ designer, engineering manager, and field technician - supporting installers and distributors with training, designing and troubleshooting. Before his roles at Uponor, Holdorf worked at Radiant Technology, Inc. as manager of technical services.
Holdorf received his B.E. in mechanical engineering from SUNY Maritime College where he worked on steam ships and also received his 3rd Assistant Engineers License with the US Coast Guard.
