Bill Howe Promotes Five San Diego Plumbers to Team Leaders

Well-known San Diego plumbing company created five new positions in the plumbing division in 2014

May 28, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Family of Companies has become one of the largest family-owned and operated companies offering San Diego expert services in plumbing, heating & air conditioning and restoration & flood remediation. Part of the success of the well-established company has been the caliber of employee, owner, Bill Howe hires in San Diego. Plumbers, heating & air conditioning technicians and restoration specialists must all complete extensive training and continue to educate themselves on their trade. To ensure training is a high priority, the Bill Howe Family of Companies will pay for all employees that wish to join the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling-Contractors two year HVAC school or four year Journeyman program.

Five veteran plumbing professionals in the San Diego company were recently promoted to Team Leaders. The Team Leader position is a new creation in 2014 meant to assist the growing company in day-to-day operations creating a clear flow of communication and efficiency within the plumbing division.  “Although we remain a small family-owned business in how we care for our customers, we are growing and wanted to ensure that we continue that same level of care within the company,” said Amber Baynard, Human Resources Manager for the Bill Howe Family of Companies. Each Team Leader has approximately 15 employees on their team and are directly responsible for helping them to meet the expectations of the company’s policies and standards such as arrival times, truck maintenance, appearance, training and education, and company morale.

They also help to bridge communication gaps between technician and dispatcher to create a cohesive team unit, which ultimately benefits the customer and eliminates errors. The five Team Leaders, Brain Rice, Edgar Godinez, Jorge Kahle, Nate Thorsen and Luis Mascareno, have been with Bill Howe for between 5 and 12 years as premiere San Diego plumbers, and earned this position through rigorous training, a grueling interview process that had over 20 applicants, and a dedication to making a better Bill Howe Family of Companies.

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.
