Our Team

 

BryanBryan Mills, Owner

Bryan’s career in the pool industry began 23 years ago working summers at one of the largest swimming pool service companies in central Massachusetts while attending the University of Michigan.  After his graduation from U of M, Bryan returned to the pool business for “one more summer”.  That summer lead to a job as the year-round service manager.  After several years commuting to Mass from RI, he took the plunge in 2004 and started Atlantis Pool Service.  Since that time, Atlantis has grown from a fledgling 2-man partnership to the current 15 person service operation.  Beyond Atlantis, Bryan has taught the National Swimming Pool Foundation’s CPO course as well as the Association of Pool and Spa Professional’s PPSO course.  For 7 years, Bryan spent the off-season as the CPI Instructor for the SR Smith Corporation of Canby, Oregon. This involved traveling around the country, training other pool professionals on issues relating to diving board and slide safety and conducting seminars at a variety of trade shows.  Outside of the pool business, Bryan enjoys time with his wife and son, bee keeping, brewing beer, and snowboarding.

Weston Ruthven, Owner

Hailing from upstate New York, Weston graduated from Clarkson University with a degree in Civil Engineering.  After 8 years spent working as a licensed Civil Engineer on many commercial and institutional projects around New England, Weston was lured to pool service by the prospect of getting out from behind the desk and working outdoors on a daily basis.  He combines an extensive knowledge of construction practices with a hands-on understanding of trades from plumbing and electrical to masonry and hydraulics. In his free time, Weston enjoys time with his wife, working on custom carpentry projects, raising chickens, brewing beer, snowboarding, and perfecting his culinary skills.

Laura, Office Manager

Laura is now in her fifth year at Atlantis Pool Service.  With previous experience in medical billing, she smoothly transitioned from generating invoices for pharmaceuticals to pool chemicals. Laura is known for her calm demeanor and the clear messages she leaves for customers on their voicemail (a skill that is more rare than you’d think!).  She enjoys running and live music and has recently taken up quilting.

Joe moved to Rhode Island and started with Atlantis in the spring of 2016 and quickly set himself apart with his dependability and attention to detail. Joe spends his free time playing guitar in a local band and searching high and low for Rhode Island’s best Mai Tai.
