THE BEST ADVICE I EVER GOT?

Do the right things for the right reasons.

ON MY DESK RIGHT NOW?
Picture of my family, a plaque of our ISO 9001:2015 certification to remind me of our hard work and commitment to deliver a quality product correctly through our processes and procedures. And of course, a copy of the Water Well Journal.

MOST SATISFYING PART OF YOUR JOB?
Finding solutions for customers that will provide an efficient, long-term pumping solution for years down the road. Solving issues and finding solutions.

GREATEST CHALLENGE FACING SUPPLIERS OF WATER WELL PUMP SYSTEMS?
We are living in an ever-changing world and the supply business is no different. Keeping up with new trends and one of our greatest challenges is finding the next generation that would like to make this industry their career.

WHAT ARE YOU HEARING MOST FROM YOUR CUSTOMERS?
Customers want to stay engaged with training and understand the new trends with product changes as they become available. The customer is also looking for good, energetic young people to come in and learn the business.

THOUGHTS ON WATER PRESSURE BOOSTING CHALLENGES?
It wasn’t too many years ago we were discussing this was the future. It is now our reality and from this we can provide pumping units that meet customer needs at the highest efficiencies and longer run times.

WHAT HAS IT BEEN LIKE TO SERVE ON THE NGWA BOARD OF DIRECTORS?
I can’t believe it has been 10 years of service on the NGWA board. It was an honor to serve with so many good people in this industry who have the same goals in mind: To make our industry a better place when we leave it.
