About Tina

Tina came to the U.S. from England when she was 18-years-old and worked hard to establish a career. She has been integral to the company’s growth in an industry that is significantly male-dominated. She recently served as President of the Plumbing Heating Cooling Contractors Association in 2012-2013, where she was instrumental in the establishment of the HVAC Apprenticeship Program and currently serves on the PHCC Academy Board. She continues to be an inspiration to women who are establishing careers in this industry, specifically within our company. Since 1984, Tina has juggled a successful career and a family. She inspires her daughters, two of which are working within leadership roles at the company, as well as her niece who is the Human Resources Manager. As an avid runner Tina has completed running a marathon in each continent, which includes running the Great Wall of China and the Antarctic Ice Marathon. Tina was also a recipient of the San Diego Business Journal’s 2010 & 2013 Women Who Mean Business Honoree Award and the San Diego Business Journal’s 2012 Chief Financial Officer of the Year Finalist Award.

Tina is active in community outreach and charitable efforts. Since 2010, she has partnered the Bill Howe Family of Companies with the American Heart Association with generous annual donations while promoting heart health and healthy living to the San Diego community with the “Howe Healthy is your Heart Drawing Contest.” She is also a sponsor for the “Go Red for Women,” helping to raise awareness of the number one killer in women: heart disease and stroke. She encourages her female staff to get regular checkups and know their numbers. She knows that this is an industry with high stress and understands the importance of balance management, and she ensures that part of her mentorship focuses on reaching their personal and professional goals without forgetting to take care of themselves, especially in such a fast paced, male dominated trade where often, women have to work harder to be taken seriously.

In addition to the large annual donation and heavy involvement in the AHA, Tina is an avid supporter of the extensive list of interests and organizations that the employees and their families are involved with. She has an open door policy and the Bill Howe employees are comfortable approaching Tina for any request. She sponsors little league, Girl Scouts, individual educational opportunities and all manner of fundraising events.

She is also a dedicated community volunteer and spearheads a group of “Bill Howe Volunteers” in donating their time at the San Diego Food Bank. 2015 has seen record numbers attend the monthly night of volunteering through her initiatives. Tina’s generosity of spirit and dedication has spread and inspires employees to continue to “pay-it-forward.”

Tina encompasses all that is inspiring in an individual. She has an unwavering dedication to her family and profession, and does not look to the future for her own gain, rather promotes excellence in the people in her life, including the many young women she mentors professionally and personally. Never one to step into a task half way, she is a doer and continues until she meets or exceeds her goals. She has a generous spirit and tenacious drive that have led to her tremendous success in business, family and personal achievements.

What Joel C says about us

Very Satisfied. Michael is always on time, Michael has been doing all of the plumbing related to our remodel. He always does exactly what he commits to do within the estimated cost. He keeps me informed if any wrinkles pop up, and his plumbing skills are excellent as we have had no problems or issues arise after he has left. Very professional! Highly recommend.

What Rick M says about us

We had other companies come out for estimates on what was considered a major job with jackhammers and replacing cast iron pipes under the house… having been stung before, we wanted another estimate just to make sure we were making an informed decision. The prior estimates went up to $21,000!
Bill Howe sent us an amazing veteran plumber, Dashawn and his co- worker Anthony. Dashawn did a thorough check of the problem, explained what he thought was needed … he did a final check and we were able to see for ourselves what was the problem. He recommended a complete cleaning to de-scale the pipes, and not the major work we dreaded. Thanks to his solid analysis and patience in making sure we saw what he saw, the issue was resolved completely, and saved us thousands of unnecessary work. None of the other estimates included the cleaning; only the major repairs. Thanks to Dashawn’s knowledge, professionalism and honesty, we’re Bill Howe customers.

What Carolyn Housman says about us

This was our second excellent experience with Bill Howe. We had a blocked kitchen sink drain 8/5. I was able to get a same day appointment which is AMAZING. Person on phone was very courteous and set me up right away. Tony arrived at the house (called me 30 minutes out so I was able to be ready). He diagnosed the issue (blocked drain, not the garbage compactor) and was able to snake it and ran the water for 10 minutes to be sure the drains were clear. He cleaned up everything and you would not have known he was even there. Thank-you Tony and Bill Howe, you always know how.

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
