Amber Baynard Named Finalist: Business Woman of the Year
Bill Howe Plumbing Human Resource Manager Named Finalist in Business Woman of the Year Award
Award-winning San Diego plumbing company proud to recognize another woman leader from Bill Howe
October 4, 2017 San Diego, Calif. – The Bill Howe Family of Companies began as a small San Diego plumbing company serving the coastal communities. Bill Howe was the sole technician, but quickly realized the need for an honest plumber and fair prices in San Diego. He began growing his company, and after 37 years has divisions in heating & Air, epoxy drain rehabilitation, and restoration & flood. The company has over 175 employees and has been named the best plumber, best HVAC company, and best contractor.
Amber Baynard recently celebrated her 20-year anniversary with the Bill Howe Family of Companies’. She began at 18 as part-time summer help but quickly became indispensable to the company. In the last 20 years, she has worked her way as a customer service representative, dispatcher, lead dispatcher, operations manager, and moved into Human Resources as the manager in 2013. She was also the first dispatcher for the San Diego heating division when it opened in 2007. Amber is well loved by all of the employees.
In 2012, Amber was the recipient of the YWCA Tribute to Women in Industry Mentor Award at the TWIN Awards Ceremony. Amber also successfully transitioned from the Vice President of the San Diego Plumbing-Heating-Cooling-Contractor’s Association (PHCC-SD) to the President of the chapter. During her Vice Presidency and the first three months of her role as president, Amber has increased membership by five percent and assisted with the transition of the PHCC-SD Academy Board of Directors and leaders.
“Amber has been integral to the growth of the Bill Howe Family of Companies,” said Tina Howe, Vice President. “We are proud to recognize her achievements and celebrate her leadership.”
The San Diego Business Journal’s Business Woman of the Year is in its 24th year and has been rebranded form Women Who Mean Business. The ceremony will take place on November 15, 2017 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront. Other Bill Howe women leaders honored as recipients of the award include Tina Howe, Jessica Kalloch, and Jaime Stolis.
