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 David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

I have been using Bill Howe since the late 1980’s, their service has always been excellent, plumbing, heating and restoration. I am most impressed by the integrity of their employees, not only do they know their work/skill, they do not waste time, they are so efficient, they are so helpful and they are a true “service”!

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

Restoration & Flood

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.
