Our Leadership Team
President • Phone: 703-408-2911
Following Carl’s discharge from the Army he began work as a plumber. After a few years in the industry, he began pursuing his entrepreneurial dreams by opening his first of many plumbing wholesale supply stores focusing on the wastewater market in Virginia. Carl then received his first patent on “The Bull Run Valve” which is still utilized to this day. While growing this sector of the business he started a second company that manufactured concrete septic tanks and sand filters. Carl started thinking of ways to improve a sand filter which resulted in our current NSF 350 approved synthetic recirculating media system and cofounded EZ Treat Incorporated. He went on to design and patent many vitally important products for the wastewater industry.
Carl is an active member of the EZ Treat team and is hands on with our complex projects. If he isn’t putting his intuitive touch on your project, you may find Carl walking the plant looking for ways to improve the product line.
Carl and his wife Francine of 53 years reside in Haymarket, VA. He has 3 adult children and 3 grandchildren. When Carl isn’t working, he likes to take rides with Francine in his 1949 convertible Buick Roadmaster or play golf with his friends at one of the local courses.
