Gordon Stillwell founded the Gordon G. Stillwell Company in April of 1969. He specialized in air conditioning and began working out of a humble converted garage in his home. Shortly after starting his business, he realized that he needed someone with a background in heating to complement his strengths, so he asked his former associate, Paul Hansen, to assist him with some jobs he had booked. Together they formed Stillwell-Hansen Inc., and worked as a team until 1996 when Paul retired. At that time, Gordon and Carol Stillwell acquired Stillwell-Hansen. Carol, who had joined the company in 1969 as a secretary, became President and CEO, while Gordon remained active in Sales Management and acted as their mentor until his passing in 2008.
