Rudy Burwell, president

A retired U.S. Army Colonel, Rudy Burwell is a visionary leader and entrepreneur who began his civilian career in communications and consulting work. However, he quickly identified new opportunities in the technology, manufacturing and distribution sectors, and chose to pursue his longstanding interest in business. Encompass Supply was born in 2013, after he discovered the need for a reliable, professional and technology-driven supply business that could serve as a valuable partner with contractors.
