Brad Wilder was born in Utah, but grew up in Arizona. Before joining ASP, Brad Wilder worked in the restaurant industry, as well as therapeutic nutrition and the landscaping industry. Wendi Wilder was born and raised in Arizona, and currently works as a Registered Nurse. Brad and Wendi are active in their community and are looking forward to providing a “one-of-a-kind” business service for residential as well as the commercial industry in the Gilbert area.
I was having problems with my own pool, so I called some company to and requested that they come out and take a look, but they never showed up when they were supposed to. My wife Wendi went to go look up another company, and she wound up calling Clint Rowley (owner/operator, ASP Mesa). Clint came out in five minutes, diagnosed the problem, sold us the equipment we needed, and started a weekly maintenance contract. After some research, we found out that ASP was a franchised company. I had been searching off & on for an opportunity for a few years, and this was the perfect fit, especially since I prefer to be outside and active.
Why did you choose an opportunity with America’s Swimming Pool Company?
The backing, for sure. If I need any kind of tutelage or direction, there’s always somebody there to guide you in the right direction. Also, I can start small and just continually expand my business as I grow.
What makes your business different?
The fact that we’re a more professional organization than a lot of the guys out here. We’ve got logos on our trucks, we’re well presented, we dress better, and we’ve got a set of standards that we’re expected to uphold.
What are your expansion or development plans?
I’ve been toying with opening a franchise in my hometown in Utah so that we could provide service in the summer up there as well as continuing service in Gilbert.
Do you have any other interesting hobbies or passions?
Hunting and fishing are my main passions, and I’ve recently gotten into archery as well. Also, I’m really looking forward to spending time with my wife and our new baby, once she comes into the world.
