Outstanding Employees Honored for November Achievements

The Bill Howe Family of Companies was recently named as San Diego’s Best Plumber and San Diego’s Best Heating & Air Conditioning Company. We were very excited to learn of the honor by Union Tribune Readers, and know that it is all due to the amazing team we have.

We believe in recognizing our outstanding team members as much as possible, and so created four awards for achievement that we present each month at our company-wide meeting. The awards are: Above & Beyond, Customer Service, Leading by Example, and Excellence and showcase employees for volunteer work, job perfection, leading the Bill Howe Way, and of course treating customers with our Legendary Service.

We were very excited to recognize nine employees’ achievements from the month of November: Mauricio Cervantes, Mike Lacey, Michael D. Hoover, and: Brian Dorney, Carlos Cruz, Chris Hamm, Daniel Heinz, Jose Gomez, and Yons Juarez.

Mauricio Cervantes is one of our San Diego plumbing Team Leader’s and has been with our company for over 10 years delivering nothing but the best craftsmanship and service. However, we wanted to recognize another aspect of Mauricio’s contribution to our company and community and that his is his giving spirit. Mauricio was presented with our Above & Beyond Award for going the extra mile for his peers and joining in Bill Howe’s volunteer efforts with the American Heart Association and San Diego Food Bank.20161207_071701

For our Excellence Award, there was one clear choice for November, Mike Lacey. A skilled San Diego Journeyman plumbing specialist but also one of the best drain technician’s we have. His recent job on a high-rise building was completed to absolute perfection, on time, within budget, with constant customer communication, clean and restored, earning him this award.


Michael D. Hoover is newer with our company, but an outstanding plumber, which is why we are pleased to present him with the Leading by Example Award for his first full month with our company. From the moment of his hire, Michael has proven to be efficient, skilled, great at customer service, detailed, and stands out as a true leader.

Sometimes, it takes several employees working together to create a seamless and successful job. That is the case with our Customer Service Award Winner(s) for November. We earned our name of San Diego’s Best Heating & Air Conditioning Company when Brian Dorney, Carlos Cruz, Chris Hamm, Daniel Heinz, Jose Gomez, and Yons Juarez worked around the clock to deliver comfort for our customers on a recent job. It was a challenging installation and took all of them working as a team to complete creating another happy customer.

Whatever services you need in San Diego, Plumbing or Heating & Air Conditioning, you know you’re getting the best when you call 1-800-Bill Howe (245-5469).

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 Michelle says about us

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.
