TJ Witterman handles the responsibility of general operations management. He assists our sales support team and our operations team.
I was born and raised in Aliquippa, PA just 30 minutes north of Pittsburgh. I am the youngest of 3 boys and was blessed to grow up on 140 acres of farm land that my grandfather was raised on.
I graduated from a small Christian college in Beaver Falls, PA named Geneva College with a degree in Student Ministries. Just after graduating, I married my wife Elisa and then promptly moved to Florida in January of 2002. Upon moving, I began working with a utility contractor as a field laborer (just to have a job!!!). In April of 2002, I started working in the office as a purchasing agent. After several years of purchasing, I took over the estimating position which I held until 2009. At that time, I was given an opportunity to enter the product distribution side of the industry.
God has blessed my wife, Elisa, and me with 4 children: Kaitlyn, Alina, Emma, and Ethan. As a family, we enjoy some of the simple things in life like cooking together, eating family meals together, and spending time together. Beyond my relationship with Jesus Christ, my other interests include golf, rooting for my Pittsburgh teams (Steelers, Penguins, Pirates, Pitt), and spending time in the woods back on the family property.
Many don’t know this, but around the office, it’s well established that I am considered a ping pong champion. Though there are short instances where the famous AVEM Ping Pong Championship Belt leaves my possession, it usually doesn’t take long for it to find its way back to my wall.
