FirstOnSite Restoration has bolstered its Ontario leadership team with a slew of new appointments.
The independent disaster restoration service provider has named four new branch managers as part of the Ontario team: Melissa Lundy, branch manager, in London; David Goetz, branch manager, in Kitchener; Matt Brooks, acting branch manager, in North Bay; and Kim Dickson, acting branch manager, in Mississauga and Scarborough.
“FirstOnSite’s Ontario region has worked hard to build a great foundation supported by a team of professionals dedicated to providing the very best restoration service,” said FirstOnSite Restoration Central Region senior vice-president Jason Prescott.
“These four leaders have a vast knowledge of our people and industry. Together, they will play a key role in our success and continued growth, helping us deliver the highest standards of performance,” Prescott prefaced.
Lundy first started as a cleaner with FirstOnSite back in 2006. She was later promoted to project coordinator – her most recent role before her current appointment as branch manager. She has handled a variety of catastrophes throughout her career – even mobilizing to Fort McMurray in 2016.
Goetz has been in the restoration business since 2000, first working for one of the founding companies of FirstOnSite as a general labourer. He was then promoted to project manager in 2011, then left FirstOnSite to become a national quality appraiser for Contractor Connection. In July 2018, he rejoined the company as branch manager.
Brooks’ career goes all the way back to 1996. Since 2006, he has been working as a project manager, later joining FirstOnSite in 2016 as a project manager as well. Brooks has a diploma in civil engineering and architectural drafting.
Dickson has more than 15 years of experience in financial and operational management. She first started with FirstOnSite in 2008, overseeing the financial operations of all four Eastern Ontario District branches. Dickson oversaw operations during the Fort McMurray wildfire, the 2017 Windsor flooding, and GTA ice, water storms and wind storms, a release said.
