Paul Porter, CEO of Premier Pools Management Corporation (PPMC) today announced the addition of 47 year industry veteran Vance Gillette to its board of directors. “Vance is a well respected icon in the swimming pool business and we are delighted that he has agreed to serve on our board,” said Porter. “We were looking for an individual who not only possessed keen insight and strong business acumen, but someone who intimately understands the unique culture of Premier Pools and Spas. No one fits that bill like Vance Gillette.”

A long time advocate, friend and mentor to those in the pool industry, Gillette started his career in 1966 selling pool cleaners over the phone. Earlier this month, he retired from Zodiac Pool Systems after 36 years in various capacities, most recently as Vice President of Business Development. "I am truly honored and delighted to serve on Premier Pools & Spas’ board of directors”, said Gillette. “For over 25 years, I have admired Paul Porter's company vision, culture, and his outstanding leadership. He has brought a renewed energy and positive outlook to an industry that got hit pretty hard in the last several years. It has been exciting to see the growth and renewed spirit for an industry that we love.”

Porter added that it would be hard to find someone with a bigger social network in the swimming pool business than Gillette. “Vance stays intimately involved in every aspect of this business and has a great network of builders, manufacturers, distributors and marketing people that he frequently interacts with. No one has their finger on the pulse of this business like Vance.”
