Charles P. “Chuck” Reagan is an investor, partner, board member of Puerto Rican based Aireko Enterprises. He is also an investor in the Pittsburgh-based private equity firm of TAG Equity Partners serving on a number of boards of directors of companies within its portfolio of companies.
His entrepreneurial drive has yielded over thirty years experience in owning and operating businesses. For twenty of those years, he was associated with a major New England regional firm specializing in providing construction, engineering, and facility services to commercial and industrial real estate.
Chuck acquired this company from the firm’s founder in a highly leveraged transaction in 1992 transforming it from an air conditioning and refrigeration service subcontractor into a broad-based, full-service building technology services contractor. He successfully grew the company from $2.6 million in annual revenues to $70 million, averaging more than twenty percent revenue growth over a ten year period. Under his leadership the firm established a network of six branch locations throughout southern New England, developing and recruiting key personnel in management, engineering, and sales disciplines to facilitate its expansion. His strengths include hiring and retaining strong and talented employees and the vision to develop a company with a high percentage of recurring annual revenues.
His company gained a national reputation, garnering industry recognition for its leading-edge engineering, construction project excellence, and winning its most coveted awards: National Contractor of the Year, and Best Company to Work For.
Chuck’s business experience includes managing the myriad of issues involved in growing and developing a privately held company…..including ownership and management succession, acquisitions, divestitures, sales, marketing, and LBO transactions and growth.
Prior to acquiring his company, Chuck held a variety of positions in manufacturing, sales, and management at the air conditioning equipment producer Carrier Corporation and at the international construction firm Limbach Company.
He is a Director of several for-profit companies and has served on the World Affairs Council board of directors for many years. A Vietnam veteran, Chuck graduated SUNY Sryacuse with a degree in mechanical engineering and, through an apprenticeship at Carrier, was a journeyman machinist.
