Jeremy Blum, President of Fairfield Pool in Fairfield, Connecticut, began his career within the financial industry across a rather large body of water known as the Atlantic Ocean. Over the years, his career took him from London to Luxemburg to Switzerland, and eventually to the United States. In 1978, he arrived in New York City. Feeling as if his background in European currencies might have a limited shelf life due to the changing markets, Blum put his proverbial Plan B into action.
Initially, Blum considered opening a vineyard, but after doing his due diligence, he decided it was best to move in another direction. A lover of the outdoor life, he was soon drawn to the exciting world of backyard pool installations. After responding to an advertisement in the Wall Street Journal at the end of 1999, Blum’s career gained considerable velocity after he closed on a deal to purchase a long-standing pool company with roots that go back to 1965. Although that particular company specialized in vinyl liner pools, Blum later transitioned to fiberglass pools. Through a series of fortunate events, Blum ultimately connected with representatives from Leisure Pools. In 2015, Fairfield Pool, which has installed 3,000+ pools throughout Connecticut since the company was originally founded, became a dealer for Leisure Pools. Fast forward to 2022, and Fairfield Pool successfully completed many fiberglass swimming pool installations by the end of that year.
Serving an affluent demographic in Connecticut just outside of New York City, Fairfield Pool also owns a distribution center that sits on a five-acre lot from which pools are delivered to most of Connecticut. This provides ease of access to inventory that serves to enhance Fairfield Pool’s already efficient installation process.
