Welcome to the Executives Association of Long Beach Member Directory

The long standing slogan of the association has been "Business is our Business". The Executives Association of Long Beach (EALB) was founded in 1922. It is an association of Long Beach business executives, each of whom represents his or her respective firm at the management level.

The Long Beach Executives Association is a member of the International Executives Association, a worldwide group of similar associations. It is not a service club, a social group or fraternal order. The EALB is a networking group for business owners and high level executives. It has but one unique objective: to capture the natural bond of common interest which exists between business executives and by regular weekly meetings, develop and enjoy a brand of fellowship conducive to the creation of additional and profitable business for all its members.

It does not require its members to patronize each other, but it does provide opportunities for each member to promote their products or services and it can open doors that otherwise are closed to desired business. Members of the EALB often consider the association as an extension of their own business or profession.

On Monday, December 9th The Executives Association of Long Beach met for their weekly luncheon to hear from Josh Thomson of Thomson AC. 

For over ten years, Thomson AC has specialized in HVAC installation and repair, in both a residential and commercial setting. With over 30 employees, installations are clean and done right. They also do repairs and maintenance with quality parts and install quickly and efficiently. For your commercial and residential HVAC needs or questions go see Josh Thomson at Thomson AC

Josh was born and raised in Oregon. Josh eventually moved down to Southern California and began working as a salesman for an ac company and learning the business with on the spot training. Ten years ago, Josh started his AC company from the bottom up. He started with the idea that he wanted to be the helpful guy next door and not known as a typical AC business. By tossing out the typical business practices of other AC companies, he created a new business model to cater to his client’s needs.  Josh created Thomson AC with one thing in mind: to treat customers like family. Josh is a proud father of two and husband who loves playing music and restoring WV vans.

Josh’s talk provided insight into heating and air for homes and update on the r22 freon for ac units. Josh explains that all ac units have to abide by the same regulations and most heating and air companies also provide roughly the same warranties as well. Thomson AC partners with Daikin, the U.S. largest AC and heating manufacture, when installing complex systems and according to Josh, they provide a honest product. 

Josh also talks about changes coming to ac units that use r22 freon. In the next couple of years, r22 freon will be phased out and starting next year most companies will no longer replace the refrigerant. R22 freon has been recently found to have harmful effects to the environment and going to environment friendly refrigerants. If you have a unit that is 10 years old or older, you might need to replace it. 

Thomson AC gives their customers the best care when repairing or replacing heating and air units. They are honest with their customers and collaborate with them to find what works in their home. Thomson AC is in the Yelp Hall of Fame due to their great customer service by continuing to treat customers like family.
