Our Team

Steven Claypool, CIC
Managing Partner
General Manager & CEO

I started my career in the green industry in 1991 as an irrigation installer while in high school and over the summers. During my tenure I worked as a service technician, service department manager and eventually worked my way to sales and operations manager within green industry construction. Seeking change and a family friendly career I moved to the distribution side of the green industry. While working within distribution I worked as a branch manager, started a new division as division manager and finished as regional business development manager. All along the way I created very strong industry connections and learned the remaining parts of the green industry. I look forward to leading Pro Tech, delivering superior products for our customers and continuing to build our brand!

Ray DeMarco
Sales & Estimating

My career started in the Hudson Valley region of New York State. While there I learned our trade, having started on the installation side, but quickly finding my calling in sales and estimating. I joined the Pro Tech team in early the 2000’s where I started as an estimator and now oversee sales and estimating. Working with clients and forging relationships is a great part of what I do and I enjoy it immensely. I can’t wait to see how we can help you and I can guide you through the process.

Dave Miller
Operations Manager

Having started my career at Pro Tech and born and bred in the Capital Region I have a strong connection both the irrigation industry and home. I started at Pro Tech at the young age of 19, and like everyone who starts in irrigation, I started with a shovel and rolling pipe. Since then I have honed my craft and become an industry leader working both sides of installation and service. I enjoy working with my team and delivering an exceptional product for my customers, I look forward to working for you next!

As a long time employee and now partner, I eat and sleep Pro Tech. I started at the bottom and take pride in having worked all the way where I am now. Working both sides of our business, service and installation, I bring all of my experience to the table for you. I enjoy seeing a project completed and take pride in the finished result…lets see what we can do for you!
