Founder & CEO
Barry Snyder, our CEO, and founder started Optimum Water Solutions with a mission to promote healthy living through clean, pure water while providing the highest level of customer service. And that remains our purpose today. Everything we do at Optimum Water Solutions is about helping our customers.
Drinking water, also known as potable water, is water that is safe to drink or to use for food preparation. The amount of drinking water required to maintain good health varies, and depends on physical activity level, health-related issues, and environmental conditions.
Barry’s origin story is like a lot of entrepreneurs, after 24 years with the family business, started by his grandfather, the company Jones and Brown was the largest independent wholesale distributor of building products in the Northeast.
Ready for a new challenge and to escape the cold in Pittsburgh, Barry moved to Florida to pursue the business of point-of-use drinking water. He saw early on that, compared to bottled water, this was the best solution for business-to-business drinking water needs. So he founded Optimum Water Solutions in 2014 and in 2017, Barry was thrilled to have his son, Zachery Snyder, join the team full-time—thus continuing a tradition of Snyder men working together.
