Meet the Staff

Kevin Medler
President & General Manager

​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.

Kevin Kramer
Director of Sales & Marketing

Bud's recruited Kevin. S. Kramer in 2007 to develop the sales and marketing departments for the company. Kevin has been all across the country as a navy brat and came to Hampton Roads in 1975. He enjoy traveling with his three beautiful children and can often be found at local events spending time with Bud's customers.

Joe Hendrix
Director of Service & Maintenance

​Joe started as a technician and came up through the ranks at our company. For the past decade he has been involved in the service and maintenance aspects of residential and commercial equipment. His passions at work include “learning and educating others about our field of work because it is constantly evolving every year as technology advances.” When the work week has ended he can usually be found near the water all summer long either fishing or just relaxing with his boxer, Lola. As outdoor temperatures drop, and hunting season begins, Joe and Lola leave the waterside for hunting camp.

Christopher Klijanowicz
Chief Financial Officer

Chris was raised in Williamsburg and joined the Bud’s family in 2013 as an accountant. He has a Bachelor’s Degree in finance from Virginia Commonwealth University and is currently preparing for the CFA (Charted Financial Analyst) program. His drive and passion for finance and accounting has helped Bud’s grow to the size and success it has today. He also recently got engaged and looks forward to tying the knot this September.

Chandler Nelson
Manager of Maintenance

Chandler started in the company in 2008 as an Installation Assistant while attending Virginia Commonwealth University. He quickly moved from Install to our Service Department and became one of the top technicians. His technical abilities and knowledge helped create solutions for homeowners when he joined the Comfort Advisor team in 2014. Chandler is now responsible for our Maintenance Department. He is looking forward to taking care of our priority customers and growing our customer base on the Southside. Chandler also enjoys raising the third generations of Nelsons at Bud’s with his three year old son, Pierce.

What Our Customers Are Saying
"Bud's is the best. The field team is very professional. Honest, on time, and quality service. Your email confirmation of appointment, follow up and electronic billing, make your company the best in Hampton Roads for HVAC."
~Bob, Williamsburg
"From the sales person to the installation team; this has been the best experience I have had with a contractor. The in house follow up by their technician today shows how much Bud's values customer satisfaction. The tech answered the questions I had to my complete satisfaction. I already have recommended Bud's to friends and will continue to do so. Keep up the good work."
~Thomas, Newport News
"I wanted to be sure everyone knows how much I appreciated their efforts. They were all persistent, putting in many hours (and many parts)."
