Vice President Dealer Development
BioNova Natural Pools
Allen has enjoyed a lifetime in and around water, and credits Jacques Cousteau and the National Geographic society for his decision to study Marine Biology & Limnology at Clemson University. After college, Allen began a pool industry career spanning over 40 years in swimming pool construction, renovation, service, retail, and maintenance of all vessel types, residential and commercial. The last 30 years Allen was employed with BioLab in sales, sales management, marketing, and training roles.
Allen was first introduced to BioNova Natural Swimming Pools in 2009 by customers and friends, James and Hae-Sun Robyn (Rin Robyn Pools in NJ… also BioLab dealers) and was provided the opportunity to join the BioNova team in 2018. Timing is everything. With the increasing focus on environmental sustainability and “green lifestyles”, the marketplace is thirsty for a truly natural choice for pool care. BioNova and Natural Swimming Pools (NSPs) provide the perfect platform to blend his love of science and natural systems to the care and operation of swimming pools.
Allen is an Eagle scout, SCUBA certified, and an avid outdoorsman, hiking, camping, fishing, kayaking, and exploring whenever he has the chance. “I’ve been a responsible steward of the environment all of my life, and I am excited to help usher in a new and viable option to those seeking a more environmentally responsible approach to water treatment for their swimming pool.”
Allen and wife Linda live in Georgetown on the South Carolina coast, enjoying one of the most pristine tidal wetlands and freshwater estuaries in the world. “Bringing awareness to Natural Swimming pools, as a viable choice for pool care, is the perfect platform for this next stage in my life.”
