Meet the People Behind the Product:
Featured Employee: Dave Smith
Point of Entry Systems Product Manager
23 Years with Pentair
Dave Smith began as a contract employee in our Brookfield facility, assembling Pentair’s legacy Fleck valves. After 13 years in manufacturing, Dave accepted a role in tech support and field training; which eventually led to his career in sales. Two years ago, Dave became involved with Pentair’s revolutionary Hybrid DI project. He quickly became instrumental to the project, and now operates as the Point of Entry Systems Manager.
Dave’s career at Pentair has been an adventure, filled with constant learning. Pentair’s operations span the globe, and he is pleased to have had the opportunity to interact with colleagues from different facilities, organizations, and even the international team. Dave likens his experience at Pentair to his time serving our country in the military; he believes Pentair is a team, that works together to achieve its common goals and values.
Outside of work, Dave enjoys continually improving his golf skills. A proud Wisconsinite, he closely follows the state’s basketball, baseball and football teams. Dave also spends time coaching his son’s baseball team.
