Jim Bodle (President and Owner)
Jim has had a 24-year career in the process and sanitary industries in the Northeast. Jim spent the past 14 years with the F.W. Webb Company after partnering with them in late 1999 to begin a start-up distribution business in the Biotech and Pharmaceutical marketplace. As the BioPharm division grew and prospered, in 2005 Jim assumed the additional responsibility for the Webb Pump Division. He then accepted the added responsibility of running the Webb Piping Products Division. Jim ran all three businesses concurrently (representing approximately $14mm in sales and 22 employees) until April of 2011 when he was promoted to Vice President of Industrial Sales for the overall organization. As Vice President, Jim held responsibility for the Industrial Sales efforts of F.W. Webb which represented approximately $200MM in sales of Pipe, Valves, and Fittings (PVF), Controls, Instrumentation, BioPharm, and Pumps. Jim was also intimately involved in several acquisitions throughout his tenure.
Ted Haley (Vice President of Sales)
Ted is widely-respected as a leading technical sales expert in the New England Market and is a highly-coveted resource for his client base. He has more than 15 years of experience in the sanitary segment and more than 27 years selling technically oriented products at the end-user and OEM levels. Ted and Jim previously worked together at Webb for 14 years, during which time they built the organization from $1MM in sales to just under $6MM; Ted managed the majority of high-volume client relationships during that time.
His ability to build strong, long-lasting client relationships at all levels of an organization is unparalleled and he will be an instrumental part of the future growth of Acuity.
Joan Ivers joined the Acuity team in 2017 and manages our books on a daily basis and interacts with our CPA firm as required.
Carol Grenon (Inside Sales and Customer Support)
Carol joined Acuity as an Inside Salesperson in December of 2017 after working in Sales Operations for a well-respected Marketing and Brand Management company. In that role, she handled customer inquiries and coordinated details around marketing campaigns to insure the organization met their timelines. At Acuity, we pride ourselves on meeting our delivery commitments every time, and her experience and focus on customer service is a critical part of helping us do so. She’s always got a positive, “can-do” attitude that rubs off on everyone around her.

Jessica Weimar is Acuity’s Operations and Inside Sales Manager, joining us in 2018 after working for most of her career in technically-oriented fields. She was part of the team that took a new invention of thermally-conductive plastics and built the company, Cool Polymers, into a global leader in the manufacture of plastic heat-sinks for LED lighting. Cool Polymers was eventually sold to Celanese Corporation and she took the role of Global Product Specialist to help introduce the products throughout the Celanese global sales organization. After her contract expired, Jess was searching for another technically-oriented industry, so she joined an OEM system-builder in the Life Sciences industry prior to joining Acuity.
We are eager to leverage Jess’ start-up history and technical ability to help us offer our customers a new level of customer experience!
