Originally from Winters, Texas now residing in San Antonio, Erik Bernal is married to Heidi Bernal and father of five beautiful girls. He is an honors graduate of the University of Tennessee receiving a B.S. in Logistics with a minor in Marketing in 2003. Erik started his career with Accenture in Atlanta as an information technology consultant working with SunTrust Bank and the State of North Carolina. He moved on from Accenture in the fall of 2004 working as a sales representative for Schindler Elevator in New Orleans.
When Hurricane Katrina struck southern Louisiana in August of 2005, Bernal became extremely concerned with the environmental impact. Thus began his journey with water quality. He began working in various roles in the Central U.S., understanding the challenges of inadequate water quality. In August of 2007, he was provided an exclusive contract with GE Water and Pentair Water Filtration for San Antonio, Texas. He has since expanded his territory to include Central and South Texas and is now the largest Pentair Residential Water dealer in the U.S.
In 2018 he was hired as the Regional Vice-President for Healthway Home Products in charge of national residential builder development for the #1 healthy home concept, Certified Pure Wellness.
In October 2020, Bernal became one of three managing partners of PURE365, a mobile phone app, along with Vinny Lobdell of Healthway and Michael Ham of Refresh Smart Home to leverage the national markets and provide an entire vertical suite of healthy living and well-building solutions specifically related to intuitive diagnostic tools integrated with best-in-class air and water quality solutions.
