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 in 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.
Most recently he has been hired as the Regional Vice-President for Healthway Air Purification in charge of supply chain and distribution for Texas with plans to expand to Upstate New York, Arizona, Florida, and Colorado in 2020, offering the first-ever Pure Residential Home in the U.S.
