About this episode’s guest

As the third generation owner of Designer Bath and Salem Plumbing Supply, Jason Sevinor’s entrepreneurial spirit was inherited from his father, Ralph and grandfather, Bill, whose hard work and dedication grew a small plumbing supplier into the successful specialty kitchen, bath and plumbing supply company it is today. With an emphasis on exceptional customer service, Designer Bath embodies the very best of family-owned business practices and continues to thrive under Jason’s current leadership.

Prior to taking over his father Ralph’s title as President in 2008, Jason worked in various roles throughout the company, including showroom and counter sales, operations and warehouse. 

He attended the Olin School of Business at Washington University in St. Louis, where he majored in marketing, human resource management and psychology. Following graduation and prior to joining the family business, he completed a plumbing supplier management-training program in Maryland.

A frequent guest speaker and panelist at design, kitchen/bath and plumbing trade conferences, Jason mentors industry members and advises entrepreneurs on best practices and career development.

Outside of the kitchen and bath world, Jason is an avid runner and donates his time and resources to support the communities of Boston’s North Shore, as well as causes close to him and his family, including the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) and the Northshore Medical Center and its annual Cancer Walk. He resides in Beverly with his wife and two young sons.
