Sales & Marketing Manager
As the Marketing Manager, some of Chris’ responsibilities are the planning of events, ensuring that we are consistently building and maintaining relationships throughout the communities we serve and that we are engaged on social media. Chris brings with him over 20 years of sales and marketing experience. He’s very active in the local Chambers of Commerce and other organizations. His favorite thing about working for SERVPRO is most certainly “notworking” (aka networking) which is essentially relationship building. In addition, he is using those connections to help others succeed. He takes great pride in knowing that he’s able to help people going through disasters to get their lives back to normal, or as we like to say… “Like it never even happened”!

Kate started with us back in October 2018 after a 30-year career in Property Management. She has had a fascinating life - putting herself through college working as a bookkeeper and graduating with a double major in Psychology & Sociology, she spent several years working with incarcerated juveniles. Kate is also co-founder of a family support group for individuals with special needs, an organization in which she started after gaining custody of her niece in 1989 with whom she is developmentally delayed. With three children and six grandchildren, her time is mostly spent with family when she isn’t volunteering with Operation Clean Sweep, riding her bike in marathons with partner Eric, or taking her sailboat, Katie-Did, across Buzzards Bay. With so much professional and life experience, she’s been a great addition to our growing team here at SERVPRO, always brightening up our office with her kind and good-natured personality. We’re lucky to have her with us!
