Coburn’s Advances Leadership in Sales and Service, Promoting Kevin King and Darin Coker

(BEAUMONT, TEXAS) — Coburn Supply Company proudly announces the promotion of long-time employee, Kevin J. King, to the role of Director of Sales. King began his work in the Coburn’s waterworks division in 1994 and has since worked his way up the ranks to Division Manager in 2010 and now, Director of Sales.

In this new role, King will continue to grow partnerships in the marketplace, cultivate a strong workforce, and work with buyers and division managers to drive new ideas forward to continue to grow Coburn's legacy. “I’ve been in this industry since 1983 and enjoy helping people solve problems,” says King. “As we celebrate 90 years of customer service in 2024, I look forward to working together for a common goal, applying my industry knowledge, and continuing to serve and help more people.”

Patrick Maloney, Coburn’s president, echoes Kevin’s sentiments. “We are happy to have such a tenured employee step into this role. His industry knowledge will help us grow our business segments,” he says. “We look forward to his fresh ideas on how Coburn’s can become more efficient with our internal processes, as well as continuing to deliver the high levels of service our customers demand.”

King will continue to work in Denham Springs, La., as his successor Darin Coker is promoted to Waterworks Division Manager. Coker has worked for Coburn’s for five years and has built strong working relationships with co-workers and vendors, many of whom he now calls friends. “I look forward to working directly with our Waterworks team to better understand their roles, navigate market challenges, and explore growth opportunities together,” notes Coker. His past experiences working with premium brands and utility technology service companies makes him an asset to the Waterworks division as he continues to build strategic partnerships with key vendors to strengthen the Coburn’s brand. He continues, “It’s my long-term vision to continue to grow the Waterworks division through the advancement of products and services for our customers, allowing technology to improve the customer experience and bring our level of service to an all-time high.”

These leadership changes will not only allow for the professional development and personal growth of both of these valued employees but will also help to see that Coburn’s continues to excel as the right choice for its customers as it has been since 1934.

After 50 Years of Service Trey Berlin Retires from Coburn Supply Company
(BEAUMONT, TX – April 14, 2022) 

On April 1, 2022, Senior Vice President - General Manager Trey Berlin, credited with growing Coburn’s Gulf Coast footprint, retired after 50 years of service to the company.

In 1972, while Trey was still studying at Louisiana State University, he started work at Coburn’s Baton Rouge North Street location and later assumed the role of manager. At that same time, the still-young Trey was entrusted with overseeing the construction of the Airline branch, the first from-the-ground-up branch in Coburn’s history.

Executive Vice President Michael Maloney says, “To say that Trey has been hugely instrumental in developing the Baton Rouge footprint is an understatement. The success of our Airline branch is largely due to Trey’s vision. It’s why we asked him to expand further by overseeing the creation of several new branches, including those in the New Orleans market.”

Trey was a founding member of Coburn’s Vendor Committee, the forerunner to the current general manager system. He will continue to serve on the company’s board of directors.

Coburn’s will miss Trey’s expertise, but most of all, his generous spirit. Colleagues describe him as a selfless friend to all in need, which was particularly evident after the 2016 flood when he worked to provide housing and other provisions to people affected by the disaster. Still others describe him as a mentor, willing to share his time and wisdom with those who asked for his guidance.
After so many years of service, Trey intends to to enjoy his retirement fishing and spending time with his wife Tanna, children and grandchildren.

(BEAUMONT, TX – December 31, 2021) - In October, Coburn’s honored General Manager Bill Geyser who retired after 46 years of service with the company.

Bill’s colleagues say that he always shows his fellow employees love, commitment, and dedication. It’s especially touching to me that so many use the word ‘mentor’ to describe him. After 46 years, it’s hard to say goodbye, but we are grateful for all his service to Coburn’s.” He will enjoy his free time with his wife. Susan, his family and grandchildren.
