Steve Elis

Steve has almost 40 years of experience in the plumbing industry, working for a plumbing distributor, a manufacturer, and finally as a Principal for Southwest Sales. Steve founded Southwest Sales in 2000 and quickly expanded the agency to cover all of Texas except El Paso. His experience and success in both distributor and builder account management are evident in the identity and strengths of Southwest Sales. Since forming the agency, he has personally been recognized as the Principal of the Year, MVP of the Year, and New Construction Salesman of the year by Delta Faucet Company. At the same time, under Steve’s leadership, Southwest Sales has been recognized with Agency of the Year awards from several of our largest manufacturers. Most recently, Steve has transitioned Southwest Sales into an Employee Owned Company (ESOP) to ensure a viable succession plan that will benefit the employees and the manufacturers that we represent.
