Michael LeBlanc has been selected to lead Aquatherm’s newly created operations department. LeBlanc, who joined Aquatherm in 2014, had been the company’s regional sales manager in the Southeast Region. He brings to this position more than three decades of mechanical, plumbing, project management and rep experience.
The new operations department consolidates Aquatherm’s estimation, drafting, fabrication, fitting production, shipping and inside sales functions. As vice president of operations, LeBlanc joins the company’s core management team and he will report directly to CEO Jordan Hardy.
To replace LeBlanc, Fred Esleck has been promoted from area manager to regional sales manager of the newly defined Southeast region, which includes Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi and Southeast Louisiana (Baton Rouge and east).
In addition, Dave Moore joins the company as regional sales manager for the Northwest region. Moore’s territory encompasses Northern California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Montana, Wyoming and Northern Nevada.
Moore had been an Aquatherm product specialist with Elmco & Associates and has been actively involved with Aquatherm in the Northern California market for several years.
