Transforming the plumbing industry.”

What happens when a young Master Plumber sets out to eliminate the negative stereotypical image of a plumber? In the case of John Wood, he becomes the CEO of his own innovative enterprise, HUB Plumbing & Mechanical of Boston, MA, and begins the transformation of the plumbing industry.

Wood wasn’t satisfied with level of service normally provided to a customer in this industry, so he set out on his quest to transform the plumbing industry by establishing Hub Plumbing & Mechanical.

Wood’s goal as CEO of HUB Plumbing is "to outperform the competition by out satisfying the customers." Currently managing four teams of plumbers and technicians, Wood has initiated an incentive program for his employees, enabling them to be in charge of their own earning potential, while availing themselves of additional opportunities to further their own experience and training.

At Hub Plumbing, "Gone are the days of waiting for a plumber to call you back, showing up at your door (if they show up at all) with disheveled attire, at the most inconvenient time," notes Wood. "The time has come for members of the trade to look and act like professionals, performing a valuable service for homeowners and businesses, as they deserve."

Wood, who enthusiastically seeks new materials to improve the working culture, is open-minded to implementing new ideas and practices. A graduate of Cape Cod Plumbing School, and Old Colony Trade School, Wood is a member of the Dorchester Board of Trade, the Speakeasy Stage Company, and the Ashmont Civic Association.

Wood, a native of Dorchester, MA, currently resides in Boston, MA.
