Brian Sandy - President & CEO
Brian K Sandy, the owner of BK Plumbing, was raised by his grandparents on a farm in Kentucky. It was there that he developed his strong work ethic. His grandparents also taught him the importance of living by the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
Brian is a Licensed Master Plumber in Kentucky, where he began his plumbing career over 21 years ago, starting in residential work, and then specializing in commercial plumbing as well. He is also a State Licensed Plumbing Contractor in Tennessee, as well as a Licensed Septic Tank Installer. Plumbing comes naturally to Brian because of his love of building and fixing things with his hands. He derives his greatest satisfaction from building a solid business on the quality of the work of his professionally-trained team, and taking care of the customers first. When not working, Brian enjoys camping and spending time with family. In 2004, Brian launched his own company, founded on those values he learned growing up, “to treat others the way you want to be treated.” Stepping back and examining a ‘job well done’ brings him his greatest satisfaction at work. His belief is that plumbing is an art form and he often states that "The first 4 words in the definition of plumbing are 'the art of installing'."
