Episode 43: Tim Murphy; Arizona’s #1 Builder and CEO of Presidential Pools, Blue Square, and Pebble Radiance.
In this episode we interview an Arizona Legend! We sat down with Tim Murphy who is the founder and CEO of Presidential Pools, Spas, and Patio as well as Blue Square and Pebble Radiance. Presidential is the number one builder in Arizona as they have built over 29,000 pools in Phoenix and Tucson combined. They have a state of the art pool park which features 6 different pools with all kind of different features for potential customers to see and envision what that pool might look like in their backyard.
If you ask an Arizona Pool Professional if they have seen or serviced a Presidential pool we bet the answer will be yes! We had several of their pools on route at Brothers including our favorite pool. Tim is someone we have looked up to over the years and we were honored to have him in the studio. We hope you are inspired by his story and that it motivates you to reach the goals you have set for yourselves and your company.
