Ed Fennel — “Your Reputation Grows”

by Emily Blackburn

President of Mid-Atlantic Waterproofing, Ed Fennel has been part of this perennial Top 500 leading firm since the 1980s. While recounting his humble farm beginnings, Mr. Fennel explained the work ethics required to succeed in any industry, but especially the home improvement industry. Mr. Fennel spoke to our Top 500 audience in 2017, and told the story of how much he struggled early in his career, and the people and tips that helped him succeed.

Reputation and work ethic have shaped every aspect of Mr. Fennel’s business. “People don’t work for me, they work with me.” He speaks critically of managers who do not participate in the hard work their employees are putting in.
