Michael Landolt graduated Summa Cum Laude from Ranken’s Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning program in 2011. He tells us, “Ranken instilled strong, practical knowledge in an evolving industry allowing me to be effective in the industry as technology advances. The core concepts I learned from the various courses set me up for success in my future career.”

His favorite memory of his time spent at Ranken is, “The various ages of equipment in the shop were an excellent representation of the real-world environment of performing service work. There was a very old residential furnace with ribbon burners and a natural draft flue. I had lots of fun working on the relay logic of the system.”

Michael has been recognized for his leadership and dedication to the energy industry on several occasions. He won the Association of Energy Engineering’s Corporate Energy Management Award and Region IV Group Award, and Aramark’s Service Star Volunteer and Campus of Excellence Awards. His project management skills have proven paramount according to Michael Heroux, Aramark Technical & Energy Director at Baylor University (BU). Mr. Heroux explains, “Michael’s oversight and diligent management of planning and implementing work and operational assignments over Baylor Energy Complex has been exceptional. His work on the Aramark Baylor University Energy team was instrumental in achieving energy savings of over $1.25M over the last four years. Michael set up and implemented over five plant tours and energy discussions with BU Engineering students.  We received multiple thank you’s and appreciation from both faculty and students, ‘A Great Education Experience’.”
