California Faucets proudly announced that National Sales Manager Steven Weinberg has been named 2019 Professional of the Year by the Decorative Plumbing & Hardware Association (DPHA). Joining the industry more than two decades ago, Weinberg has held positions in nearly every aspect of the industry—a rare achievement in any business. His career has spanned the industry "trifecta," including experience as a decorative showroom owner, independent sales representative, and manufacturer. The annual peer-nominated award recognizes professionals whose outstanding contributions have helped advance the decorative plumbing and hardware industry.
"Steven's invaluable perspective and ability to strategize and build relationships make him one-of-a-kind. He has been an indispensable resource, contributing to virtually every aspect of our business," said Jeff Silverstein, California Faucets president and CEO. "It's no surprise to us that his peers nominated him for this honor."
Perhaps even more valuable than his unique breadth of experience is Weinberg's warm and helpful personality. Leader, sales manager, co-worker, father, friend — these are just some of the titles that demonstrate his loyalty and commitment in every area of life.
"If I had to boil it down to two words, it would be, 'Steven cares,'" said Noah Taft, California Faucets senior vice president of marketing and sales. "If ever there was an opportunity to disprove the awful cliché that 'nice guys finish last' this would be it."
A past DPHA president, Weinberg has been an active member of various committees where he's played an instrumental role in the development of displays and educational materials. He continues to serve DPHA today as a member of the board of directors.
