Don Roto received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Portland. After college, Dan decided to learn more about plumbing, one of the odd jobs that he did in college. After six months of inconsistent work Don landed a job with a larger plumbing company that did both residential and commercial work. Don started as an apprentice, but within four months had passed his journeymen exam. Don continued to work for this company for ten years, receiving his master plumbing designation right at the ten year mark. At this point Don decided that he wanted to try operating his own company, leveraging skills learned in college as well as providing him the flexibility of being his own boss. It was at this point that he started writing the business plan for Water Tubes and eventually quit his job.
Don will be the only employee for the first month. Don will bring on board a second employee during month two, and two more employees on the third month. It is forecasted that Water Tubes will stay at four employees for the foreseeable future.
