Wisler Plumbing has always been a family business. Me and my three other siblings have all been part of the company in some capacity. I’ve been working here since I was fourteen years old. I got my start by doing electrical and plumbing service work. I remember helping my dad during my free time after school and in the summer. (Fast forward to 2014, when my brother Brian and I took ownership of Wisler Plumbing.) Even though I have a long history here, a lot of what I do stems around giving back to my dad for starting the company.
After I graduated high school, I took night courses at a community college and I started working full time. I got my plumbing license a year later at the age of eighteen, which is the earliest age you can get licensed. I started as a job foreman on new construction plumbing jobs. Within three years, I was supervising two different crews and doing the estimation for large custom homes. I’d do all the plumbing, gas lines, and estimation along with supervising the plumbing crews. I did this until I was around 22 years old.
During this time, my brother was the General Manager of Wisler Plumbing. He got married and moved away to another state, so someone needed to fill the GM position. This was when our company did new construction plumbing, commercial plumbing, water treatment, service work, and bathroom remodeling. Since we had several divisions, there was clearly a need for general management.
A year later in 2008, we decided to shut down the commercial and new construction plumbing division. We moved some positions around because there was a need to lower overhead. I became Vice President of Operations for 7 years up until the point that Brian and I bought the company. As you probably already know, I’m now President and part owner of Wisler Plumbing.
One of the biggest challenges for a business is doing a startup. It’s hard to run the day-to-day business sometimes, but it’s also extremely rewarding. Looking forward, I think we’re going to continue to do what we do best: bathroom remodeling, service plumbing, and water treatment and filtration. We’ll be good to the areas that have been good to us, and we’ll continue to be experts in our field.
We’ve grown steadily over the past six years, and we’re looking toward continuing that trend. I’m passionate about providing growth opportunities for everyone on our team. It’s just a matter of continuing to strive for operational excellence and taking on new opportunities in the areas that we’re already great at. That’s how we plan to grow our business.
