Our Work Team

BRIAN JACOBSON – President and CEO

As the leader of The Plumbing Guys, Brian strives to ensure the company is operating efficiently and its resources are employed to the fullest capacity. After earning his bachelor’s degree in history at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, Brian began a career in the insurance field. He soon realized he was a man of action and desired to work with his hands out in the field. He began his plumbing career as a Roto Rooter drain cleaning technician. Thus began the birth of a plumbing superhero.

Brian also made stops at several plumbing shops as he worked his way to becoming a Master Plumber and graduating at the head of his class. His strong desire to learn the business aspects of plumbing combined with superior knowledge of the profession gave Brian the inspiration to start his own plumbing company.

Brian is thrilled to have the support of his wife and two boys. In his spare time you’ll find him with a rod and reel in hand or riding his mountain bike on the trails.

Credentials and Certifications: Backflow preventers certification, pex and gastite piping certifications.

ANDREW STURGES – (The Flusher), Cofounder

A native of Kansas, Andy moved to the great state of Minnesota when he was 15. After beginning his professional career as a cook, he soon found his calling as a plumber. Prior to partnering with Brian to form The Plumbing Guys, Andy worked as a service plumber in the Twin Cities for 14 years. In his many years of experience, Andy has mastered the art of solving problems and having fun while doing it. That quality shows through in Andy’s work as he takes great pride in providing friendly, quality service at a reasonable price.

Andy’s biggest accomplishment wasn’t pulling a six-foot root out of a customer’s sewer, but being a single father. When he’s not working at plumbing Andy is usually working a fishing hole, shooting pool or enjoying his family. As Andy would say, “If it isn’t fun it shouldn’t be done!”
