Associate Member Director
Chris Pfohl is the President of Rome Mechanical, a new-construction plumbing company in Blacksburg. At 12 years old, he began helping his neighbor, the town plumber, after school and evenings and during summers until going to college. He graduated from West Virginia University in 1981 with a degree in Marketing and began his career in sales for American Scientific Products in northern NJ. After spending 22 years in the corporate world and being transferred six times during that period, he decided to stop the merry-go-round and settle in the southwest Virginia. He never imagined that his early experience in plumbing would come full-circle as Chris and his wife Kathy purchased Rome Mechanical from the founder in April of 2004 and moved to Christiansburg in 2005. He has served two years as president of the NRVHBA as well as chairman of the scholarship and awards committee.
