Three Generations of Experience. Exceptional Knowledge, Skill and Talent..
Robert has worked for the company for over 50 years and has unsurpassed experience and knowledge with custom, specialized plumbing systems. Trained by his father, Val, Robert grew up helping out around the shop and developing his trade. As a young man, he earned a business degree and after the passing of his father, he took over the management of the company with his mother and brothers. His significant contributions include leading the first and second expansions of the business; expanding residential service to include remodels and new construction and later applying the business’ remodel experience to new commercial construction and remodels. To Robert, the name Betti has always meant un-compromised quality and he continues to demand only the best from the company’s employees.
Tom has dedicated over 50 years of service to Val Betti Plumbing and is responsible for all of the business operations of the company. Like his brother, Tom was trained as a young man in residential plumbing by his father and later earned a degree in accounting. Over time, Tom’s focus shifted from the field to the internal management of the company to compliment Robert’s focus of managing site work. Tom is extremely knowledgeable in estimating residential and commercial projects and because of his extensive experience, he can easily anticipate problems and offer customers solutions. His contributions to the company are countless and we are constantly amazed to see how he continues to manage inventory, scheduling, payroll and all other critical administrative tasks needed to keep the business going during what he refers to as his “spare” office time (that’s the time he refers to when he isn’t bidding our next job).
Valentino, named after his grandfather and founder of Val Betti Plumbing, has worked for the company since his teenage years. His father, Robert, wanted to instill a strong work ethic in his sons beginning at an early age and Val continued working for the company through college while obtaining his bachelor’s degree. He has over 25 years of experience in residential and commercial plumbing with the company and has worked side by side with his father on many of the company’s most specialized commercial jobs. He now runs his own crew and is a a skilled foreman, field equipment operator and mechanic. Val also has extensive residential remodel experience and is currently managing the expansion of the residential service business to the Walnut Creek area.
Brad has worked for Val Betti Plumbing for over 25 years and may have been destined to become part of the Val Betti family (he eventually married the boss’ daughter). Like Val, he started working for the company as a teenager and continued to take on more and more responsibility. Because of his superior mechanical abilities and because problem solving has become second nature, Brad makes every custom job he manages look easy. He is a design build specialist for many of our custom restaurant construction projects and is a skilled, hands-on foreman who has run jobs for 15 years. Brad is also a skilled field mechanic and equipment operator and has extensive residential service and remodel experience in addition to his commercial knowledge.
Vincente has worked for the company for over 20 years and was also trained by his father, Robert, at an early age in the family’s plumbing trade. He continued to work for the business while obtaining his business degree and later applied his business background to the office where he has assisted Tom with managing the day-to-day priorities of the company. In addition to his business knowledge, Vince also has extensive field experience ranging from being a foreman on commercial plumbing projects to the lead plumber on residential remodels. His versatile background and experience are true assets to the team and company.

Aaron has over 25 years of residential construction experience and may have also been destined to work for Val Betti Plumbing (he married another boss’ daughter). He joined the company over 5 years ago and currently leads many of our customers’ bathroom remodel projects. His prior experience in bathroom remodels and cultured granite installations has made him a perfect fit for the company.
