Andy AtwoodPresident and Co-Founder
I am President of Atwood Rentals HVAC. My goal has always been to serve God and serve others. It is with this mindset that I am happy to help people obtain ownership with their HVAC needs. I was born into a Christian home and watched my dad run our family business with this same goal in mind. I worked in the accounting department of his business throughout high school and college. In 2000, I received a B.S. in Business Administration with a major in Management and a minor in Marketing from Union University. In 2008, I founded Atwood Rentals, a rent to own business in the portable building industry. As the company grew, I was made aware of the opportunity to help homeowners with their Heating and Air Conditioning needs. Our company serves all of the U.S. and thrives on leading and serving in a way that honors Christ.
I have been married for 18 years to my best friend, Angie. We are blessed with three sons and one daughter. We enjoy spending time together and are always ready for an adventure. We love traveling, spending time outdoors, boating, hunting, farming, and supporting the kids in their sports and activities. Above all, my greatest desire is to love and lead my family to know Christ and serve Him daily.
Jeff ScottVice President and Co-Founder
My name is Jeff Scott. I am the Vice President and Co-Founder of this Christ-centered, unique company, Atwood Rentals HVAC. I was born and raised here in Milan, TN. My father purchased a hometown heating and air company in 1983 without even knowing what a sheet of metal looked like. I was raised learning this awesome industry from the ground up, and I do mean the ground (crawlspaces) up. I starting wrapping hard pipe for duct jobs with a crew at the age of 9. I was always watching my father physically doing work when the jobs were coming to a close to ensure it was being done correctly, while still coaching my baseball teams and making time for family. We even scheduled Saturdays to pour concrete pads for the units being installed the following week. I was the mixer (that is a shovel and wheelbarrow). After graduating from high school, I jumped on a plane and served this wonderful country in the United States Marine Corps. It was in the Corp that I learned about true responsibility, organization, and being on a TEAM. I brought those skills back home, and soon I was responsible for all operations of my father’s heating and cooling company. I purchased all the buildings, assets, and phone number from my father in 2005. We continued growing our small-town business until it caught the eye of a much larger operation in TN. We sold our company in 2015, and my father truly retired while I stayed on staff. When I was with that company, we were losing 25% of our jobs to credit declines. I knew immediately there was a large hole in our industry when it came to funding HVAC installs. I knew we had to help people obtain ownership of their HVAC equipment without relying on a credit score. I then linked up with Andy Atwood who, at the time, owned one of the largest rent-to-own storage shed funding companies in the US and Canada. We linked the idea with his knowledge of the rent-to-own industry and began to lay the groundwork for what we are blessed with today.
I have been happily married now for 12 years to my beautiful wife, Jodie. We have 3 wonderful, healthy, and active children. We spend most of our time together as Jodie and I know how fast they will be grown and gone. I am a proud Christian and make it my job to help others every day. If you are reading this, I hope we can help you!

Phil McDonnellDirector of Sales
I am responsible for leading our sales teams and driving the growth of our business. I have a broad background working with the dominant brands in industries such as pest control, residential lawncare, commercial landscaping, home warranty, and industrial distribution. I also spent time with the nation's largest HVAC wholesale distributor where I had full P&L responsibility for a specific division of the company. I most recently led business development initiatives in the insurance industry with heavy emphasis on designing innovative self-funded healthcare programs, developing captive insurance companies, and implementing cost containment strategies for hospital systems.

Warren NeelyOffice or Operations Manager
My name is Warren Neely. I have been happily married to my wife for 18 years. We have 4 children, two of which the Lord blessed us with through adoption a few years ago. I am the Office Manager of Atwood Rentals HVAC. I was raised in Milan, TN, in a blue-collar home and taught by my parents the value of hard work. I watched them work and struggle at times to make ends meet, but I never lacked for anything. I began working with the public in grocery stores, and in healthcare early in life. My love for people directed my path to healthcare for 20 years. For 13 of those years, I cared for people on dialysis. It was a very rewarding experience getting to help people see graduations, weddings, vacations, and so many other joys of life by being a part of extending their life. In 2016, I had the opportunity to leave healthcare to come work for our owner, Mr. Andy Atwood. He gave me the chance to prove that by hard work and God’s grace, I could accomplish more than I ever imagined I would. I was able to work with people again to help them gain ownership of rental items needed for life.
Here at Atwood Rentals HVAC, we understand that life throws you a curveball every now and then. I understood that as a young man and I still understand it today. We exist to help people find a way to get the heating and air they need when they need it. We all need a little help sometimes, and it is our pleasure to help you find the heating and cooling solution you need to bring comfort and calm to what can be a chaotic experience. Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. Call us today so we can learn more about how we can help you. Please email me at email@example.com

My name is John Grogan, and I was born and raised in Chicago, IL. I was 10 years old when my family moved to a corn field here in West Tennessee. Since then, Tennessee has always been my home. I am married and have two grown children. I came to Atwood Rentals HVAC in the spring of 2021 after retiring as a disabled veteran from the U.S. Army where I served for 27 years. Here at Atwood Rentals HVAC, I am surrounded by the same intense, focused, and service mindset that I am familiar with except now it is in an amazing Christ-centered company.

Chad MartinSales Manager
I was born and raised in Auxvasse, Missouri. My family and I raised cattle and row cropped approximately 2500 acres on our family farm. After high school, I attended The University of Missouri where I played football for the Tigers on a full athletic scholarship. After graduating, I pursued many sales opportunities to gain the experience I needed to move into professional sales. For 10 years, I was a Medical Device Representative specializing in Sports Medicine and Orthopedic Surgery. I primarily educated orthopedic surgeons on new techniques and devices to repair hips, knees, and shoulders.
My first love and motivation to succeed is my family. Without them, I would not be where I am today. I married my beautiful wife, Ashley, nine years ago and we have three amazing kids Jaxon, Jozie, and Jordin. I also have another son, and his name is Tyler. We enjoy spending time outdoors hunting, fishing, and hanging out by the lake. We love all sports and are huge fans of the Missouri Tigers, St. Louis Cardinals, and Kansas City Chiefs.
In August of 2019, I was presented with the opportunity to become the Sales Manager for Atwood Rentals HVAC in Milan, Tennessee. Atwood Rentals HVAC is an incredibly unique company that offers rent-to-own funding for homeowners through HVAC dealers. The strong established relationships and loyalty in our HVAC distributor and dealer base, coupled with a market wide open to the introduction of rent-to-own funding, provided the opportunity to offer our HVAC dealers exceptional, proven, and quantitative solutions. The best part of my job is when I see a client excited about the new business they are gaining through our program for jobs they thought were lost, simply reinforcing the customer for life relationship my company already established.
