Meet The Staff

 Robert W. Nelson Jr. - Owner/CEO
One of the things that makes Rob proud to be the CEO of Bud's Heating & Air Conditioning is the fact that he can honestly say, "we are the kind of company that, as a consumer, I would choose to do business with." Rob has been with Bud's since 1983 and has been a major driving force in making this company what it is today. Ask him what his greatest achievement s however, and he'll tell you that being a father is the first thing on his list. He enjoys experiencing new things whether it be open water diving or traveling to Ireland.

With 27 years in this business, Kevin is certainly the go-to-guy for all your heating and air conditioning needs and we are lucky to have him here at Bud’s. He has surely seen it all and appreciates “being able to help people in a time of need.” That is a great satisfaction for him and is “what gets him to the next day.” Kevin is also a football fan and can be found at Virginia Tech rooting on the Hokies at almost every game. When he gets a chance to vacation, Kevin loves to relax at the beach with his wife, son and daughter, and his two Shitzus.

Erwan is a great resource to the rest of the Bud’s staff. Having been a part of the HVAC business for 11 years, he’s always got the answer you’re looking for. He values being a part of the Bud’s team because, “it’s like working with family.” Erwan is a big fan of spicy food, the spicier the better. He also has a love for motorcycles, especially Harleys. When he’s not out riding around town on his bike he can be found at home engaging in another one of his hobbies, gardening.
