My name is Henry J. Braverman and I am the proud owner of Waterville Supply. I wasn’t always a business owner, but I have spent the last 6 years of my 47 years in the building materials industry doing what I love best…. working together with an amazing group of people in order to serve our clientele with excellence. As one might imagine, after 47 years in the business, I have experienced many different facets of our industry. From sourcing products harvested locally and internationally, to selling products across the full spectrum of customers ranging from retail, wholesale, as well as to some of the largest National Accounts in the U.S. I was also fortunate enough to manage several distribution centers for a Fortune 100 building materials company before taking on the role of V.P. of Operations at a grand and glorious 90 year old Massachusetts based wholesale company. So, this long and winding road brings me here to Waterville Supply with one goal in mind….to bring to you, our most valued customer…. people, products and performance you can always count on!
Owner & AP
Pam Braverman, alumna of LR McCoy, with decades of experience as a buyer of Western Products and Surplus. Mother of daughter Lauren and cute mascot, Olive. Pam is considered to be the titular head of Waterville Supply. She is the soul and the spirit of our beloved company and demonstrates her care and concern for all on a daily basis.

VP Operations & Sales
She started her career in the flooring industry (25 years ago) at LR McCoy. She first started with McCoy in the IT Department and then, because of her strong attention to detail, and tremendous communication skills, Beth was asked if she would possibly consider sales. She absolutely hit the ground running and 6 years later with Waterville Beth handles all aspects of sales and marketing, admin functions and freight. She also is the conduit for current trends & information to the entire sales team. Beth graduated from Boston College and is married to Jim (on call staff photographer) and has a son Andrew who loves cars and technology. Beth is also an avid follower of all the Boston Sports teams!
Territory Sales Manager
Korey is another ex-alum of LR McCoy. She spent much of her 30 years in an administrative capacity, then moved on to purchasing and sales. Over the past 6 years at Waterville Supply she became mostly involved with buying and selling White Cedar Fence and components, Treated Posts, West VA Split rail and Spruce products. If you’ve never had the experience of speaking with Korey, trust me, it is truly a memorable occasion. She really is the Queen of Fence.
Lisa worked for LR McCoy for 16 years in various administrative functions. She then worked for a Health Insurance company for 5 years. In February 2017, Lisa came to Waterville Supply in an Accounting and Administration function under the tutelage of her mom Gail, who had an eye towards retirement. Lisa has been married to her husband Jim for 22 years and has one daughter Emeline.
Sales & Administration
Up until 2012 Faith spent the first forty years of her working career at one company, LR McCoy, lived in the same house, and married to the same person. She sticks with things that work, and after a brief hiatus, she is back with some of her previous workmates from LR McCoy and now at Waterville Supply. She primarily works with the flooring department but also helps keep the office paperwork flowing smoothly & efficiently. Faith also buys and sells nursery type products. In her spare time, Faith loves to bake and spend time on her small family farm.
Territory Sales Manager
Dan started his career in the floor covering industry in 1995 while attending Hudson Valley Community College in upstate New York. He found himself installing, delivering, as well as sanding and finishing floors. After college, he transitioned into retail sales. From there he took his skills on the road as a salesman with a large Canadian distributor which eventually lead to managing the warehouse and sales staff. Through a mutual friend in the industry, Dan found the perfect fit at Waterville Supply in 2016. He brought with him his strong work ethic, integrity and commanding knowledge of hard surfaces. He quickly became a team leader, leading by example with his unwavering support for both vendors and customers which he believes is the key to long-term and sustained success. On his off days, Dan enjoys his family, his projects around the house, and the great outdoors.
Territory Sales Manager
After attending high school I struck out to make a career in the construction field. I worked as a carpenter and as a mason before I found the flooring industry. At the age of 24 I passed and received the state required Florida Tile and Marble Contractor License to start my own installation business. After 18 years of the installation I opened Quality Flooring retail store, selling not only tile and marble, but engineered wood, laminates as well as cabinets. After only five years and due to unforeseen circumstances I had to close the store. This in turn led me to a relationship with Henry Braverman and the Waterville team, and at that point was graciously offered a territory sales representative job which I welcomed and accepted. I have been with Waterville Supply since August of 2018 and feel this is the best career path for me.
