  2. Develops new accounts.

  4. Performs minor board ups and physically help crews on emergencies as needed.
  5. Responsible to qualify call in work from various sources.

Protocol with Dispatch

  1. Responds to pages from dispatch immediately.
  2. Forms a quick assessment of the situation to determine if it is a viable lead.
  3. After being paged with a loss, does one of the following and immediately informs dispatch:
  1. Immediately goes to the site (95% of the time). Dispatch will continue to work the loss and collect more data and update PC accordingly.
  2. If the situation warrants it, follows up at a later time (i.e. fatality)
  3. Notifies another PC to help with the loss (very large loss, multiple large losses hit or loss is in an area near another PC).
  4. Determines it is not a good loss to run on and document why not.

Protocol at new loss:

  1. Provides a confirmation of address and quick assessment of loss to Dispatch once at loss.
  2. Establishes communication with responsible individuals at loss, ie: owners, management, fire dept. personnel etc.
  3. Uses the S.O.C. method to determine how to handle the loss:

(S)ize:  Size of the loss dictates how to handle each loss and amount of effort and attention required.  (i.e. a 500K commercial loss will take a great deal of attention vs. a 15K detached residential garage fire).

(O)wners:  The type of property owners also dictates how to handle each loss and the amount of attention required.

(C)arrier:  The insurance carrier is a key factor in determining loss.   Some losses may be underinsured, total losses or uninsured, which changes the dynamics of each loss and how it is to be handled.

  1.  Updates dispatch as loss develops and notify Dispatch when leaving the scene to update the status of the loss.

If the loss is signed:  

  1. Gets all proper paperwork signed and call for crews if needed to assist with emergency.

Jessica Locke

Regional Manager of Business Development for the Pacific Northwest

Regional Manager of Business Development for HARBRO’s Pacific Northwest division, Jessica Locke is responsible for growing HARBRO’s Greater Seattle Area branch office and assisting with the growth of the Portland, OR, branch office. She is an expert in positioning her team for growth by gathering and interpreting information, identifying improvement opportunities, and establishing policies and processes that drive efficiency and quality. She has 20 years’ experience in the service and construction industries combined.

From an early age, Jessica was self-driven and began building her career well before she knew what her career would be. In high school, she began working in the service industry and subsequently thrived in jobs that allowed her to serve and build genuine relationships with others. She entered sales after college in 2003 and in 2007 joined Pipeline Plumbing & Consulting (Bellevue) in an administrative role that quickly saw her ascend to Vice President of Sales in the short span of 3 years. This was a key opportunity for her because she was entrusted with growing the company while the owner transitioned into retirement. She was able to build significant relationships with clients that included property managers and homeowner associations. Her impressive accomplishment drew HARBRO’s attention and Jessica was likewise drawn by HARBRO’s client-centered values—professionalism, knowledge, honesty, reliability—the same that had made her own career successful, and in 2014 she joined HARBRO as an Account Manager in Seattle. Three short years later, Jessica’s leadership and relational skills, and notable extensive experience in a short timeframe, propelled her to her current position leading HARBRO’s Pacific Northwest division. It is clear from her rapid success that Jessica has an exceptional ability to quickly absorb new information and adapt to situations, a talent that serves her clients well in an industry in which fast, prudent decisions are requisite.

Jessica lives in the Greater Seattle Area with her husband and their 2-year-old son. She and her family love to snow ski and do all things outdoors, including little Wyatt, who is quite the sportsman already.

Jessica can be reached directly at (425) 656-0500

Kathy Lawler

Director of Business Development | Southern California

Kathy Lawler is the Director of Business Development for HARBRO’s Southern California operations. She oversees all account managers and steers marketing efforts for HARBRO’s offices in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Bernardino / Riverside, San Diego, and Santa Clarita.

Kathy got her start in the restoration industry in 1995 when she agreed to fill for an office manager who was absent on maternity leave at a well-known restoration firm. She was a natural fit for the position and, when it unexpectedly became permanent, Kathy began an enduring career. She joined HARBRO in 2007 as a Senior Account Manager and for the next 10 years worked alongside the HARBRO staff and in the many office locations that she now leads, gleaning detailed knowledge of HARBRO’s day-to-day operations and seeing the company’s vision and mission in action. Her experience, good judgment, and innate business acumen secured the trust of clients and confidence of her team, and clearly merited a promotion to her current position, Director of Business Development for Southern California, which she assumed in 2016.

After 25 years in the restoration industry and many more ahead of her at HARBRO, Kathy is clear about the reason for her longevity: the restoration world is an unassuming, yet indispensable, industry that is fluid, challenging, and complex on a daily basis. A key driver of business at HARBRO, she believes, is that every day ends with a sense of impactful accomplishment that someone at HARBRO has helped another person through a traumatic disaster—the type of work product that inspires a life work, not just a career.

Out of the office, Kathy adores making memories with her three sons and four grandkids, and also playing a little golf now and then. She is a member of many industry professional groups, particularly BOMA.

Jorge Reza

Branch Manager | San Diego Office

Growing up the second youngest and the 9th of 10 kids, Jorge “George” Reza was used to competing and working hard for whatever he got in life. Nothing was handed to him on a silver platter.

His father was a hard worker, and so was his mother, who he says had the “toughest career” as a housewife and mother of 8 boys and 2 girls. Young Jorge learned what work was, and saw the benefits of working hard.

“I received an AA Degree in college, but couldn’t decide where to go educationally from there, I just wanted to work,” Jorge says. So he worked his way up the ranks to management in a grocery store, moonlighting to earn his Contractor’s License and eventually run his own construction business specializing in kitchen and bath remodels. He never advertised once. All his work came by referral—which is how he came to HARBRO, he was referred by a HARBRO manager who was impressed with Jorge’s work ethic.

Jorge joined HARBRO in 2001 at the Riverside office as a Project Manager and four years later was promoted to a Senior Project Manager, then in 2009 he was promoted to his current position as Branch Manager of the San Diego office. Born and raised in Orange County, CA, moving a few miles down south was a natural fit. Jorge and his wife of 25 years have two boys in High School, and Jorge enjoys watching the two boys excel in baseball and water polo at their high school. Among his certificates, Jorge is certified in Mold & Water by IICRC.

Jorge says he enjoys being able to provide honest and important information and guidance to Har-Bro clients when they’re in a time of need and uncertainty. His main hobbies are water sports and remodeling his house.

As the Branch Manager of the Riverside/San Bernardino Counties, David is driven to create a culture and vision that will have the thumbprints of each of his team members, all of whom he expects to rise together and succeed together.
