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 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.

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!

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.
