Amber Baynard Named Finalist: Business Woman of the Year

Bill Howe Plumbing Human Resource Manager Named Finalist in Business Woman of the Year Award
Award-winning San Diego plumbing company proud to recognize another woman leader from Bill Howe

October 4, 2017 San Diego, Calif. – The Bill Howe Family of Companies began as a small San Diego plumbing company serving the coastal communities. Bill Howe was the sole technician, but quickly realized the need for an honest plumber and fair prices in San Diego. He began growing his company, and after 37 years has divisions in heating & Air, epoxy drain rehabilitation, and restoration & flood. The company has over 175 employees and has been named the best plumber, best HVAC company, and best contractor.

Amber Baynard recently celebrated her 20-year anniversary with the Bill Howe Family of Companies’. She began at 18 as part-time summer help but quickly became indispensable to the company. In the last 20 years, she has worked her way as a customer service representative, dispatcher, lead dispatcher, operations manager, and moved into Human Resources as the manager in 2013. She was also the first dispatcher for the San Diego heating division when it opened in 2007. Amber is well loved by all of the employees.

In 2012, Amber was the recipient of the YWCA Tribute to Women in Industry Mentor Award at the TWIN Awards Ceremony. Amber also successfully transitioned from the Vice President of the San Diego Plumbing-Heating-Cooling-Contractor’s Association (PHCC-SD) to the President of the chapter. During her Vice Presidency and the first three months of her role as president, Amber has increased membership by five percent and assisted with the transition of the PHCC-SD Academy Board of Directors and leaders.

“Amber has been integral to the growth of the Bill Howe Family of Companies,” said Tina Howe, Vice President. “We are proud to recognize her achievements and celebrate her leadership.”

The San Diego Business Journal’s Business Woman of the Year is in its 24th year and has been rebranded form Women Who Mean Business. The ceremony will take place on November 15, 2017 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront. Other Bill Howe women leaders honored as recipients of the award include Tina Howe, Jessica Kalloch, and Jaime Stolis.

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.
