Some of our best team members!
Meet some of the wonderful employees who make the customer service at PlumbingSupply.com® the best on the Internet!
Since 2005, Aden has been helping customers with their plumbing inquiries and researching solutions for their pesky problems. He is one of the most motivated and enthusiastic people we have, and is always ready and willing to help out where needed. We're pleased that he has stepped into the role of CEO and President. We're confident our team will continue to grow and provide the very best customer service under his leadership.
Always there to assist anyone who has questions or needs help with any given issue, he is excellent at keeping our crew on task and organized and ensuring that everything is running smoothly. Because of his in-depth, hands-on experience with many of the products, numerous plumbing parts and fittings that we offer, he often finds himself as one of the "go to" people our team turns to with difficult product questions.
Aden enjoys most motor sports, especially off-roading and hot-rodding and rides his bike year-round and really loves it ("except for rainy days"). His newest interest is gardening and working on his "green thumb", which looks promising. He also proclaims to be an amateur hiker, but looks forward to more difficult hikes in the future.
Here are some nice comments that our customers made about Aden:

Pedro came to PlumbingSupply Group in 2002 and like most of those before him, started out on our Order Fulfillment Team. He is now our Senior Purchasing Agent. He does a wonderful job as he takes pride in monitoring our ever-changing inventory levels and ensuring that our Purchasing Agents are aware of low numbers, special pricing and various vendor purchasing requirements. Due to Pedro's thoroughness and ability to stay on top a never ending task, we normally have 98% of all items stocked and ready to ship the same day the order is placed.
Pedro is not only an asset to the company but a respected peer as well. He is extremely conscientious of his co-workers and is always ready with an inspirational word and smile to brighten someone's rough day. When Pedro is in the office, you are sure to be greeted with a cheery "Good Morning!".
When not at work, Pedro enjoys watching his three children, Luis, Alexia and Isabel, grow and learn as they enjoy life. Pedro says, "It's awesome!". He loves to sit in the shade and read while on his lunch hour and also enjoys finding the unity in all things. To Pedro, every day is a new and exciting day to learn more about the "self" as we are all ever changing beings.
Here are some nice comments that our customers wrote about Pedro:

Farrah does a fantastic job in our Accounts Payable Department, helping Mark ensure our accounts are kept in good standing.
Farrah is a self-described coffee maven, cat enthusiast, amatuer astrologer, and tiny spoon collector! She is enthusiastic about all-natural home and body care, and enjoys hot springs, yoga, and dancing. She loves Chico for its thrift stores and weekly Farmer’s Market.
Stefani came to us in 2005 and immediately excelled on our Order Fulfillment Team and as a top notch Customer Service Specialist. Now, as our Customer Relations Supervisor, she does everything she can to make sure that every customer is satisfied with their PlumbingSupply experience. She gives our Customer Service Specialists the continuous training needed to ensure they stay up to date with the always evolving sites and our in depth and thorough procedures.
Even after the initial training process, Stefani continues to make sure all of our Customer Service Specialists retain and implement our procedures and standards. Without her dedication and attention to detail, we would not be able to say "under-promise...over-perform". Daily, you can find her monitoring in-coming and out-going emails to make sure all customer concerns are responded to promptly and efficiently as she raises the team's core understanding of customer care.
Aside from her regular responsibilities, she also spends time assisting the Web Development Department. Many times, she is one of the first to review many of the new pages before they are added to our site as well as researching and writing informational paragraphs about the products offered.
In her free time, Stefani enjoys traveling and says that she hopes to do more of it in the near future. She likes to take spontaneous drives, sometimes exploring small towns and she always enjoys a road trip. She "absolutely loves going camping", beach combing and is proud to say that she was certified in 2011 for open water scuba diving. And, of course, she loves to spend time with her family and finding time to read a good book or solve a stubborn problem.
Here are some nice comments our customers made about Stefani:
"Received my order (toilet tank lid) today and it fits the commode exactly right! Thanks very much to Stefani, who patiently helped me find what I needed."
- Dianne, Mississippi
"Thank you so much for your prompt and informative answer to my query! Your concise information made it so easy to order my proper replacement part -- it is rare to receive this quality of customer service/care in this day and age -- I congratulate you and PlumbingSupply.com® for you timely and excellent service... although I am visually impaired (legally blind) I had no difficulty navigating your well-organized on-line catalog, especially after receiving your informative reply -- congratulations on a job well done!... Your first-rate customer relations and swift product delivery should consistently be applauded and recognized."
- Alan Mowbray Jr, Luquillo, Puerto Rico 00773
"Dear Stefani, Thank you very much. I am amazed that you took the time to research such a small sales item and found my previous order. You are to be commended for your customer support and for just being a nice person. Your company and sister websites are perfect for the homeowner and do-it-yourself person like me. I contacted your sister site and Stefani took the time to find my five or six year old order for the same part. She sent a very nice and all inclusive email response. That is fantastic customer service for a little item like I ordered. Great people... Your example of customer courtesy and service mirror my philosophy of people relations. I have found over the years that sometimes it is just the little things that you do for someone else that can change an attitude... I will always remember your name, Stefani. Yes, she is the one who made my day a little easier... You deserve all the compliments because you went that extra mile for a simple and inexpensive item."
- Tom Endicott

"I have to document the incredible, personalized, awesome and professional assistance your Customer Service Specialist, Kristen, provided me on an order you filled for me not too long ago. I was seeking some tub accessories that were not typically stocked and Kristen went above and beyond the call of duty to alert me of their backorder, keep me apprised of their status and see the items all the way through to delivery to me. I am in an industry that strives to offer excellent customer service. I, therefore, have minimal expectations. Kristen exceeded them and went far and away to the highest level. In today's world of Point-And-Click commerce, it is more the exception that the rule to have someone actually reach out to insure your on-line transaction satisfaction... Kristen is a genuine asset. Thank you very much and you have insured a new customer loyalty."
- Jeff Harrison, Leesburg, Virginia 20175-2520

I mean, really, really, impressed. She has great customer service skills and deserves a raise!!
