MEET THE LEAKTRONICS TEAM
At LeakTronics, we take pride in offering the industry’s best customer service.
Our customers know us by name and we make every stride to ensure that their needs are being met.
Darren Merlob – Founder and CEO
Darren Merlob is the business founder, owner and inventor of LeakTronics and LeakTronics leak detection equipment. A pioneer in the swimming pool industry with more than 30 years of practical experiences, his frustration with outdated leak detection methods led Darren to develop the Leaktronics Leak Detection Kit for the Swimming Pool industry. Within a year of introducing his innovations to the pool industry, plumbers began inquiring about specialized products for plumbing outside of pools; in homes, municipal water works, industrial uses and more.
In 2010, Leaktronics began intensive research and testing of a new line of Plumbing Specific Products. Through invention and concept modification, Leaktronics developed the Plumber’s Complete Kit. The equipment inside the Plumber’s Kit have since become a key benefit to Plumbing, Irrigation, HVAC and Industrial Contractor Professionals.
Today, Darren’s tools continue to serve people around the world, including the Patented Torque Lock Structural Staple. The Torque Lock Staple and it’s method of application offers the only controlled post tension staple in the marketplace for securing structural cracks and has become the standard for structural crack repair worldwide.
Celia Wisliceny – Office Manager
Office Manager Celia brings more than 20 years experience in customer service. Celia and Darren attended High School together and began working together when they both (separately, and unknowingly) moved to Florida. Celia wears many hats in the company, from handling customer orders to keeping the machine shop stocked and making sure all ringing phones get answered.
Will Reyes – Project Lead
William has been working with LeakTronics for more than 5 years, with both product development, job site training and trade-show exhibitions. Multilingual, William can help navigate phone calls with our Spanish speaking friends and he maintains the shop floor with precise exactitude (is that a word?) If you’re using a Leaktronics tool, it’s had William’s finger prints on it at some point.
Adriel “Nacho” Ortiz – Manufacturing
Nacho brings an authority in manufacturing and testing of everything we develop and manufacture at LeakTronics. He’s the first employee in the door in the morning and he’s usually in the shop trying different solutions to make things work. He assembles our kits, tests our products and makes really good short ribs on the grill.
Joe Dolan – Director of Communications
Joe is our Director of Communications and he’s got a way of getting projects done on time and in budget. It’s one big reason we keep him around. In marketing and delivery, Joe brings decades of experience in highlighting key elements of project development for press, print and online distribution and proudly comes on board at LeakTronics to add his creative experience to what makes LeakTronics the leader in Leak Detection Technology.
Emily Chacon – Marketing Officer
Emily brings her strong marketing education to LeakTronics as our Marketing Officer. Emily played a role in the development of the DIY Girls educational program’s marketing platform and helped lead the program to success before joining LeakTronics. At LeakTronics, Emily works hard to ensure we build relationships with the industry’s best and helps to keep them informed about all that LeakTronics has to offer.
