Meet our Team


My name is Michael Atchley and I am honored to be the third generation involved in the the family business my grandfather started more than 50 years ago. I was raised in Fort Smith, graduating from Southside High School in 1994. I then moved off to Tulsa where I obtained a BSBA with an Accounting Major from the University of Tulsa. I returned to work for Oren Atchley Company in July of 2001, and assumed the role of President in February of 2004. My wife Jennifer and I have two beautiful and smart daughters that we are raising in Fort Smith.

Enough about me. Now I would like to introduce you to the rest of our team.


Alan Atchley (my uncle) is the youngest son of the late Oren Atchley. Alan has been working in the heating and air conditioning business since he was old enough to carry his daddy’s tool bag. A graduate of Northside High School, Alan currently serves as Vice President and Installation Manager. He and his wife Jan live in Van Buren.


David Kuykendall, Service Manager and Building Science Analyst, began his career with Oren Atchley Company in April of 1979, making him the most tenured of anyone without Atchley in their name. David has a rare passion for the industry that has served he and the company well over the years. David has an engineer’s mind, and when coupled with nearly 30 years of field experience, he has the ability to diagnose practically any home comfort issue you can come up with. David was our first employee to achieve NATE certification. David lives with his wife Jane in Van Buren.


Jim McInerney, Senior Service Technician, came to work for Oren Atchley Company on May 1, 1987. Jim’s easy going demeanor makes him a favorite of many clients as well as his coworkers. There are few heating and cooling problems that Jim can’t fix, and we’re grateful to have had him for the past 20+ years. Jim graduated from Okmulgee Votech and is NATE certified. Jim and his wife Janna live in Sallisaw, with their 4 boys.


Gary Fletcher, Residential Sales, has been with the Company since May of 1993. Many salesman don’t like to get their hands dirty, but this isn’t a problem with Gary. Gary receives positive feedback all the time because of his thoroughness. He’s not afraid to crawl under houses and through attics to ensure he is getting the complete picture of the heating and cooling system. Gary is a huge Razorback fan and follows the Hogs from Hackett.


Steve Gibson has served two tours of duty with the Company, the most recent of which began in July of 1996. Steve’s primary responsibilities lie in Commercial Sales, however he also handles the occasional residential estimate. What I appreciate most about Steve is that he is a true servant leader. If a co-worker needs a hand, Steve is usually the first to offer. Steve and his wife Jennifer live in Van Buren.


Patrick Stewart has been with us since May of 1998. Patrick is married to the late Oren Atchley’s only grand-daughter. Patrick serves as the Office Manager, ensuring that the office runs as smoothly as possible. Patrick and his wife Becky have two sons and live in Fort Smith.


Yvonne Griner, Bookkeeper, has held several roles within the Company and currently works in our accounting department. Yvonne started to work for us in April of 1999. After taking a 16 month sabbatical beginning in September of 2002, she realized how much more fun she had when she got to hang out with us for 40 hours each week. During her first stint with us she served as Receptionist and Dispatcher. Her varied experience makes her a very valuable member of the team. Yvonne has two young grandaughters and lives in Ft. Smith.

David Faulkenberry

David Faulkenberry, Service Technician, began his career with us in May of 2005. David is a bright, hard working technician who quickly showed tremendous potential. It didn’t take long for customers to start calling in and bragging on David for his thorough work and friendly manner. David graduated from Kiamichi Technicial Center and is NATE certified. A native Georgian, David follows the Georgia Bulldogs.  He and his wife Kristin are newleyweds living in Greenwood.


Cecil Williams, Install Technician, has been with us since May of 2006. Cecil fits right in because of his work ethic, his technical knowledge, and his easy going personality. Cecil graduated from Kiamichi Technical Center and is NATE certified. Cecil lives in Fort Smith.


Dave Yeager, Service Technician, began his career with us in October 2002. The best word to describe Dave would probably be consistent. You know you can count on Dave to be where he is supposed to be and to do what he is supposed to do. Prior to obtaining his certification through Kiamichi Technical Center, Dave spent time working for Johnson Controls. As such, he has a very good understanding of electrical and control wiring to go along with the heating and refrigeration skills he picked up at Kiamichi. Dave is NATE certified. Dave and his wife Alice live in Poteau.


Brook Ano, Receptionist and Dispatcher, started with us in June of 2007. Brook is very good at one of the most difficult positions we have. Brook takes most of the phone calls we receive, schedules appointments, and keeps our Service and Maintenance Technicians moving from one job to the next. Brook lives with her two sons and one daughter in Van Buren.


Daniel Beaver, Install Technician, started with us in May of 2008 fresh out of Kiamichi Technical Center. After working for a short period of time in our Installation Department, we began to train Daniel to help in the Maintenance Department. After doing maintenance for a while,  Daniel is once again working in the Installation Department.  Daniel has two sons and lives in Fort Smith.
