Congratulations to Rich-Tomkin’s Ethan Musselman
Though the plumbing industry is aging and it continues to face challenges attracting the next generation of talent, there are many young PHCP-PVF professionals already making a difference. They’re bringing new ideas and strategies to overcome challenges and meet demand in their respective markets.– Natalie Forster, Supply House Times
Why he was chosen as a Next Gen All Star Top 20 Under 40 winner:
“A recent graduate of CPMR, Ethan has earned the respect of his customers, manufacturers and co-workers since his start date of 2014 at Rich Tomkins. At 23 years old, Ethan replaced a 25-year territory manager who was retiring. We asked him to relocate and grow a territory that is geographically the furthest from our Philadelphia-based office. So, he had the least amount of management support on a daily basis. He grew business across all customers including Hajoca, Winn, and Ferguson, as well as regional players like APR and RF Fager. In this time, he joined young leaders of 3 separate organizations within his territory and donated his time at night to build his network. He also became line captain for Woodford, Watco, and, most recently, Uponor for Rich Tomkins, while maintaining and onboarding his replacement in the central Pennsylvania market. We have already received the blessing of Bradford White and Delta Faucet for Ethan to be part of our executive succession planning,” says Alan Cohen, vice president, sales, Rich-Tomkins.
