(Bedford, MA) - 23 May 2022: F.W. Webb Account Manager Elsa Valentine was recently profiled by PHCPPros in their "Women in PHCP 2022" feature. The article celebrates women in the plumbing, heating, cooling, and piping industry.
Valentine specializes in outside sales of residential hydronics and HVAC. She started her career as a buyer in the retail industry. Needing a new challenge, Valentine accepted a job at an HVAC company.
Historically, men have dominated the plumbing, heating, cooling, and piping industry. Valentine didn’t let that, or a lack of prior experience in the field, stop her. Instead, she put her faith in one of her strongest traits – her people skills.
Valentine used those skills to establish relationships and make connections in the industry. Her employer turned to her when they opened a branch in New York – a location where they had no customer base.
The New York branch thrived thanks to Valentine’s hard work and determination.
"The business has so much to offer women on every level from accounting, installation, business management — the list goes on." Valentine told PHCPPros.
Valentine attributes a former female mentor’s trust in her as a driving force that helped her attain her position today. She sees those same possibilities for other women in the HVAC field.
"Women can do anything, anywhere, anytime." said Valentine.
