Pete started Sanders Plumbing Company in 1989 and was one of the youngest plumbers to ever receive a Masters license in Knoxville! When he was just 23, he already held his Journeyman licenses in both Ohio and Tennessee.
Pete has been married to his high school sweetheart, Vickie, for over 37 years. Together they own Sanders Plumbing Company and have two adult children that work in the business.
Pete has served as President and other roles in several local business networking organizations, and Sanders Plumbing Company has sponsored various schools/agencies/events that benefit local children and adults with special needs.
In 2017, Pete was nominated and elected by popular vote to the Executive Advisory Board of Success Group International, a business development firm. After being an active member for years, he stepped up to serve on the Board for four years, coaching and mentoring members as well as other business owners in our local community.
He was also flown around the country and featured as a guest speaker at large conventions, teaching members how to build and maintain a long-term, successful business from the ground up.
Today, Pete holds his Masters license in Knoxville and many surrounding cities/counties. He also holds a CMC-A State Mechanic License, which allows Sanders Plumbing Company to legally take on larger and more extensive jobs than the average LLP plumber.
Pete has been certified with Rinnai, Navien, Wirsbo, Trac Pipe, in Backflow repairs, and many other arenas of plumbing in his dedication to continued education. He applies his knowledge and experience to each employee on our team, making sure each person has the most up-to-date and top of the line training as we move forward.
Pete enjoys live music, playing drums, going to car shows with his son, making his office staff groan with his dad jokes, ice cold brews on the beach, and cruising in his ’72 Nova. You may have seen him driving around town with his wife Vickie after shining the seats up a little… just enough to make her slide closer to him when they take on big curves.
