Meet Your Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Binghamton

  • Tom & Jamie Markham


    Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Binghamton has been a locally owned Plumbing and Drain Cleaning company located in the Broome County area for over 30 years. Originally franchised by Tom and Jamie’s father Earl Markham and his business partner at the time Rick Holden. After a few years in business Earl bought out Rick and ran the company up until the end of 2019 when he passed the franchise onto his sons Tom and Jamie.

    Throughout High School and College Tom and Jamie worked for Earl’s vaunted “Lawn Crew” over summers and during school breaks. Doing basic lawn maintenance and manual labor at the shop and various properties while being available to be spare labor for the senior techs on large job sites and dig jobs. Many of our technicians came up through the lawn crew as well which helped Earl establish that they had a good work ethic and didn’t mind the smell of sewer too much. All these techs ended up being long term employee’s and many are still with us today.

    Tom graduated with a Business Degree from SUNY Broome and decided to join the family business in 2011. He worked under Earl as a service tech and completed his Master Plumbing License in 2017 making him the youngest Master Plumber in Broome County at the time. Having worked in the business for 8+ years in the field and slowly taking on more and more responsibility throughout those years made it a seamless transition to running the company and managing the different aspects that came with the being an Owner of the Company.

    Jamie graduated from SUNY Binghamton in 2011 with a degree in Financial Economics. He then worked for 7+ years for a local food distribution company Maines Paper and Food in a management role dealing with supply chain and systems operations. In 2017 he came back to the family business as an office manager. Jamie also helps in the field if needed, overseeing specialized drain cleaning equipment and excavations jobsites.
