Owner & CEO
The Basement Doctor
With more than 30 years of experience in the basement waterproofing and foundation repair industry, Ron Greenbaum has helped build and grow the hugely successful brand, The Basement Doctor. In an industry not always known for ethical practices, Ron has established a long-standing reputation for honest, responsible and quality service. Prior to becoming The Basement Doctor, Ron was Vice President of Sales and Marketing for retailer Waterbeds ‘n’ Stuff, and co-owner of a local rock ‘n’ roll production company. He then worked in basement waterproofing for five years before partnering in 1992 with Tom Johnston, the owner of J&D Home Improvement. He served on the ethics committee for the National Association of Waterproofing Contractors for two terms. Then in 1999, Ron introduced the national trademark, “The Basement Doctor.”
He continues to be the face of his company’s brand in major advertising campaigns, and often consults for national trade publications. In 2006, Ron was named one of Columbus C.E.O. magazine’s “15 Business Superstars,” and was also recognized in 2012 in SmartCEO magazine’s 100 Best Run Companies. But it is perhaps his philanthropic contributions to organizations like Special Olympics, Honor Flight and Habitat for Humanity, and to important causes such as animal rescue, that stand out the most.
