General Manager Ed Drejman has been with Pump Express since day-one, providing the experience and expertise that make us a leading pump distributor and a destination service center in the Northeast. A veteran technician and diagnostician with expert certification from the Goulds, Armstrong and New England Water Works organizations, Ed runs our Field Operations and Pump Repair Facility like well-oiled machines. If his good looks seem familiar, it’s because he’s pictured here with son Eddie, below.

Sales Manager Fred “Rain Man” Hettinger brings an encyclopedic knowledge of pump manufacturers, specs and applications to the task of delivering successful pump solutions to thousands of customers each year. Fred’s an all-around problem solver but difficult wastewater applications are his specialty. When he’s not at home explaining the fine points of hydronics to his two-year-old son and baby daughter, Fred can usually be found behind a wall of computer screens with a phone at each ear.

Application Engineer Dan Szegda joined the Pump Express team after five years as an outside sales rep/commercial specialist for a major pump manufacturer. He specializes in the HVAC sector and has certification in both basic and advanced manufacturer tier programs. Dan holds a B.A. from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and is happy to be working with pumps because he loves water -- particularly when it’s near a beach.

With more than 20 years experience in the wholesale plumbing business Parts Specialist David Perillo brings expert knowledge of residential hydronics and sewage/wastewater systems to Pump Express. Dave acquired his first-rate customer service skills while working as assistant manager at one of New Jersey’s largest plumbing supply houses and his penchant for being polite as troop leader to several waves of cub scouts.

HVAC,waste water and booster system pump sizing are a few of the things Pump System Specialist Eddie Drejman III excels at. He’s also a whiz at wrangling pump replacement parts, sizing motors, troubleshooting and—though you’d never know it from his perpetual buzz cut—he’s pretty handy with a hockey stick.

In addition to tax law, Regi is fluent in Malayalam, the language of his native Kerala, India, where he developed the seven-meter throwing arm he maintains by playing team handball. During the rare weekend when he isn’t driving his daughters to synchronized swimming competitions, he competes in tournaments.
