DSG has promoted Phil Baumel to the position of plumbing segment manager, taking over for Ryan Tracy, who was promoted to sales manager in April 2015. Baumel will work closely with DSG’s Chief Segment Officer, Mike Tupa, and Sales Manager, Ryan Tracy, to create an environment in which DSG’s plumbing customers can succeed and grow. He will work out of DSG’s Hopkins, Minnesota, branch.
Baumel has served in the plumbing distribution industry for more than 30 years, working for wholesale distributors in the Twin Cities area. He joined Pipeline Supply in 2014, which DSG acquired in January 2015.
“Phil knows the plumbing industry inside and out,” says Tupa. “He’s a great fit for the position, and we’re confident that he’ll serve our customers and our manufacturer-partners well.”
