Meet Our Team
Ottawa's Premier Pool Services Company
HB Pools is a leader among premier pool companies in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario. Why can we say this with such confidence? What’s the secret to our success?
Stepping Out From Behind The Company Logo
At HB Pools, we are more than a company. We are a group of people on a mission in pursuit of our passion for being the very best at what we do. In short, we love everything about the pool business, and having the opportunity to share that passion with you through great service and support is our NUMBER ONE goal.
Take a few moments to get to know us, and I promise you will like us and will want to give us a try.
Frederick “Fred” Seguin
My name is Frederic Seguin, although I also go by the nickname, Fred.
Every morning I wake up and look forward to starting another day at HB Pools. My brother Jeremie (you can read about him in his bio) and our great team of pool technicians see me as being the serious one. Looking at my picture I do not see myself as serious – do you? Okay, maybe a little.
I am actually a fun guy who loves his wife and two beautiful children. I enjoy a nice BBQ with friends and family and playing hockey and darts. I have a great deal to be thankful for, especially the fact that I have a passion for my work and that I have the greatest business partner in the world.
If I were asked to describe myself – and I presume you are asking, I would have to say that I love finding solutions to challenges and bringing new and innovative ideas to the table. By the way, my creative spirit is the perfect balance to my brother Fred’s feet on the ground, “I’ll see it when I believe it approach” to business (but you can read about him in his bio).
Two years after Fred started in the pool business, I joined the same company. I was 18 years old, and over the past eleven years, I have done everything from installations to liner repair and pool programming (which is cool because this enables our clients to control their pools with their phones). I guess what I am saying is that I have learned basically everything there is to know about in-ground residential pools. “Buoyed” by our shared passion for the business, Fred and I started our own company in 2013. Our goal was to offer clients the best service in the Capital Region. Since then our innovations in customer care has included the implementation of our online dispatch capability that enables us to communicate with our fleet of pool technicians in real time, and the launch of our video reporting technology that allows clients to see what we do when we are on-site, even when they are not at home.
There are of course other great pool innovations that I am working on in my quest to help every pool owner spend more of their time enjoying their pool as opposed to working on it. Let’s get together over coffee, and I would be happy to tell you more.
Meet “Your” HB Team!
