Bill Howe Plumbing HR Manager, Amber Baynard, Wins Women in Industry Award

San Diego plumbing company Human Resources Manger wins Mentorship award at YWCA Tribute to Women in Industry

April 30, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – The Bill Howe Family of Companies is an award winning San Diego plumbing, heating & air conditioning and restoration & flood services company. Family-owned and operated since inception in 1980, they have maintained value, ethics and community for their San Diego customers. They have been recognized as the Best San Diego plumber two years in a row from the Union Tribune Reader’s Poll, San Diego’s Healthiest Company by the San Diego Business Journal, Best Places to Work in San Diego, as well as countless individual honors within the company.

Beginning in 1980, the YWCA pioneered programs to recognize outstanding achievements of their female employees leading to the TWIN Awards, Tribute to Women in Industry, a national program. These “inspirational awards spotlight women who are honored by their organizations executives, co-workers and friends.” TWIN is celebrated across the nation honoring women who have made a significant contribution to industry, recognizing women who serve their community, and organizations who perform outreach and humanitarian efforts. The award also serves to raise funds for YWCA programs such as Becky’s House Domestic Violence Programs, the Passages Program and Cortez Hill Family Center.

Amber Baynard began working for Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. in 1997. What began as a summer internship with the small family company turned into a seventeen-year long career with a still-bright future. Amber was honored at the 2014 TWIN award for her role as a mentor within the Bill Howe Family of Companies, a role at which she excels. She seamlessly guides both her female colleagues and her male counterpoints in an industry that has very few women leaders. “I have been lucky to have great mentors of my own in my mother growing up and in business, Tina Howe, to help me be a great leader,” said Amber Baynard, Human Resources Manager, the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “In turn, I get to help the next generation of Howe family, also my cousins, become strong industry women.”

Amber Baynard is the niece of San Diego plumber, Bill Howe. She began answering phones and filing and has since worked in virtually every position within the company, even taking plumbing and heating classes alongside technicians. “Amber has been an integral part of our success over the years,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “Her leadership and mentorship of the next generation of Howe women is inspiring and Bill and I can trust that our legacy will continue.”

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!

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.
