Ortiz’s proficiency in business development, analytics, systems and processes has allowed him to establish and nurture robust relationships with stakeholders and clients, cultivating trust and fostering long-term partnerships for the brand.

“Throughout my career, I've sharpened my skills in business development, enabling me to thrive in diverse and challenging environments,” said Ortiz. “I’m honored to lead the 911 Restoration client services team to continue delivering that level of service that we are known for.”

As director of compliance and training, Jones works to ensure 911 Restoration production and safety practices comply with industry standards and OSHA regulations.
