Bill Howe Named Most Admired CEO of 2011 by San Diego Business Journal

December 28, 2011, San Diego, Calif. – On Thursday, December 8th the San Diego Business Journal honored Bill Howe of the Bill Howe Family of Companies with the 2011 Most Admired CEO in the large, family-owned business category.

The criteria for the award nomination was based on several key points including the CEO’s contribution to the company’s financial success; what the CEO has done to create and maintain a positive work environment and employee satisfaction; and the CEO’s community involvement and philanthropic contributions. Seventy-five finalists were honored at the event, given plaques for their commitment to their business, trade and communities. The winners were selected in the following categories: Nonprofit Organization, Business Nonprofit Organization, Education, Public Company, Privately Held Company, and Family-Owned Business.

Over the past 30 years, Bill Howe has continued to uphold the commitment he made to his employees, to the community, and to the plumbing trade. Most notably, Bill Howe has been very active in helping young adults who are looking to enter the plumbing industry as he is an active sponsor of two organizations that provide both in-class and on-the-job training: San Diego Job Corps and the Andrew Chapman Mentorship Program.

Bill Howe’s commitment to the company’s growth and his employees has contributed to the company’s low turnover rate and has won him and the company awards such as the San Diego Business Journal’s 2010 and 2011 Best Places to Work Finalist Award and the Better Business Bureau’s 2011 Torch Finalist Award. Additionally, Bill Howe’s commitment to his trade is proven not only in his active involvement with the San Diego Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, Contractors Association (PHCC), but also with the recent recognition by the National PHCC when they, along with Delta Faucet Co., awarded Bill Howe with the 2011 National Contractor of the Year Award.

“There are a lot of great, remarkable CEOs throughout the San Diego community. It’s truly an honor to receive this award,” said Bill Howe CEO of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “I’m only as great as the people around me. I might have won the Most Admired CEO Award, but it’s my employees and everyone I’m surrounded by everyday who I admire.”

In its fifth year of honoring CEOs of businesses throughout San Diego County, the Most Admired CEO Awards ceremony took place at the Paradise Point Resort in Mission Bay.

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.
