Tharp Plumbing Nurtures Employees’ Professional Growth

Another component of Tharp’s Mission Statement promotes its employees professional growth. Over the past year, several employees have taken steps to progress and grow through new certifications and more responsible positions. Jose Elliszander and Jeffrey Watkins recently completed the PIPE four year apprenticeship program. The majority of field employees are journeyman licensed plumbers, and Stephany Driver, Carlos Elliszander, Chris Eshliman, Chris Meeks, Duane Ollett, & Jake Tobin recently obtained their licenses! Several plumbers have also been promoted to Foreman, including Duane Ollett, Anthony Shields, and Derrick Wilson with several more potential candidates steadily climbing towards that goal.

Equally impressive, we are proud to witness two recent well-earned promotions: Chris Meeks will succeed Hans Glatz as Warehouse Assistant and Rodney Marks will transition from his Foreman role to become an Estimator in the Pre-Construction Department. Congratulations to both!
