After spending my entire professional career on the distributor side of the business, I was fortunate enough to join NH Yates in January of 2016 as the Plumbing Products Mgr. Having literally grown up in the business working in our family owned plbg & htg wholesale house in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area of Pa., and then working with a large regional distributor for over 20 years, I certainly understand the trials and tribulations of ALL wholesale sales folk. This new position in the “rep arena” rounds out my vast experience within our industry and allows me to be a great resource for both our customers & manufacturers alike. My education includes the solid influence of the Jesuits @ Scranton Prep High School and a BS/BA from Villanova University …GO Cats !
