Roberto Siewert: Daikin´s Senior Sales Engineer
Roberto Siewert is a “seasoned” Senior Sales Engineer that has been with Daikin Applied since 2013 and in the HVAC industry since 2001. Born in Brazil, he immigrated with his parents to the US as a young child and grew up in Ohio. His driven and competitive nature brought him to South Florida where he married his wife Rachael. They are expecting to start their own family very soon.
Education: He received his Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from the Ohio State University. Go Buckeyes!
Hobbies: Roberto loves the outdoors; hiking, biking, camping, golfing. He also enjoys watching sports and attending live concerts.
From a career perspective, Roberto is most proud of jobs that he was able to work with the contractor, owner, and engineer collaboratively to come up with unique solutions to their problems. “It is very gratifying for me to see a project through from start to finish,” he says. His long term goals are to continue building and growing his relationships with his customers; and once he retires, “to purchase a bad ass RV and travel the country!”
What do you like most about Daikin Applied South Florida? The innovative products in our lineup allow us to offer some very unique solutions for our customers. Many times it involves quite a bit of extra work on the front end, but overcoming the hurdles is the best part about what we do. I enjoy the opportunity to work in a team environment with people that really care about serving the customer. Working towards a common goal.
What has been your favorite project at Daikin Applied South Florida? I spent a lot of time thinking about this one, I would have to say selling my first Daikin Magnitude chiller. I spent a lot of time promoting the product with an owner in Palm Beach by doing presentations, energy calculations, and going to different jobsites to show the product. To see the chiller installed and performing as promised, and ultimately a very happy customer was very satisfying.
What is your proudest moment at Daikin Applied South Florida? It was at an awards dinner with our team and their wives and families, several members of the team had met and exceeded their goals and the entire team was celebrating our success.
