Brett Trout was born and raised in Elkhart. He is a proud graduate of Concord High School. Following high school, Brett earned his Bachelor’s degree in Business Marketing from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University in Bloomington.
After graduating from Indiana, Brett returned to Elkhart to begin his career in sales with Bristolpipe Corp. In 2012, he joined forces with his long-time friend and colleague Steve Boyer, to form Midwest Utility Sales & Marketing. They’ve been peddling pipes, fittings, and a multitude of other products servicing the municipal water and sewer industry throughout the Midwestern United States ever since. He couldn’t ask for a better business partner.
Brett has three amazing children: Olivia (18) who is following in her father’s footsteps and currently attending her first year at Indiana University in Bloomington. Sophia (16) is in her sophomore year at Concord High School, and Garrett (15), is a freshman at Concord as well.
Brett’s dancing career took off at age 10, when he entered himself into a break dancing competition, complete with windmills, jackhammers, head and backspins. He later sharpened his dancing talents in college, performing the lead role two years in a row for IU Sing. Brett will fall back on those experiences in an attempt to deliver a mind-blowing experience for everyone to see!
