Meet the team
Founder & CEO
TJ Foltz is not what you might call a stereotypical CEO. He wears blue jeans almost every day of his life. In an overseas trip, during his time as a youth pastor, TJ was overwhelmed by seeing children being forced to drink unclean drinking water for lack of better resources.
TJ never looked back and has made getting people clean drinking water his life's work. One of his favorite parts of his job is when it requires him to go to one of the growing list of areas now drinking clean water because of the hard work of the Humankind team.
TJ's wife is Meg. His dog is Abbie. His sons are Jackson and Elijah. And his dog is Abbie. Wait, we said that already.
Born and raised in Lancaster County, PA, Ethan applies the lessons and skills he learned from his family’s food and beverage business to Humankind. At HK, he exemplifies a “whatever it takes” attitude to accomplish the day’s work, whether it’s loading trucks and vans for delivery or cold calling some of the nation’s biggest retailers. He’s here because he wants to make a difference and he believes YOU do too!
He’s committed to seeing Humankind, and all the folks who support it, bring an end to the world’s water crisis.
In July 2016, Ethan and his wife, Kristen joined the HK team! They have four beautiful children.
