Generally we support our employees to give of their time to charitable causes, but especially to WICC. On Side staff have held positions on the WICC Board from Chair and Director roles, to volunteers on event day. We also helped originate and run the golf fundraiser for over 10 years that now proudly sports WICC’s name. Giving back and fighting alongside the insurance industry for such an important cause is what keeps us returning as a National Sponsors” stated Craig Hogarth, President and owner of On Side Restoration. This past year On Side also stepped up by entering a team in the Toronto Relay For Life (RFL) event that took place at Downsview Park in June. The On Side Allies comprised of 20 individuals made up of both On Side employees and family members. The company hopes to have even larger team turn out in 2018 and their fingers are also crossed for good weather. Marketing and Communications Manager for On Side and Communications Director for WICC Ontario Chapter’s Board of Directors, Sonia Manson stated, “It was definitely a wet relay this past summer but our spirits for the event were not dampened in the least. If anything our group was excited to share with other staff what took place and what they’re looking forward to next year. The new event format is much more family friendly with a 6pm-12am run time.” Ms. Manson, RFL Team Captain continued, “Although we raised additional funds for the Canadian Cancer Society, even more importantly we helped to raise awareness for cancer. As I get older I see more of my friends and family members being negatively impacted by this intrusive disease. It is not affecting ‘them’, an unknown individual that we’re not aware of or close to. It is affecting ‘us’ and we need to help each another. With enough focus, energy and resources, finding a cure for cancer in our lifetime is a possibility. To this end, I’m grateful to have the opportunity to take action through WICC.” As per the standard National Sponsor commitment, On Side pays $15,000 per year, for a total of $45,000 over a three year period. This is On Side’s second term committing as WICC National Sponsors. About WICC (Women in Insurance Cancer Crusade).

On Side Restoration announces new Markham branch manager and project manager appointments

Toronto, ON – On Side Restoration is pleased to announce the following positive staff changes within their GTA Branch located in Markham: Kate Sully, branch manager and Jeremy Burwash, project manager. Jay Kielt, regional manager Eastern Canada, revealed that “Kate Sully has been diligently learning the ins and outs of our industry with On Side over the past five years.

Sully graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University with great distinction, a dual bachelor’s degree in hand, as well as a full University of Ottawa scholarship for linguistics. She holds current IICRC certifications with extensive training and experience executing and leading structural drying and hazardous material remediation projects involving asbestos, mould, lead and clandestine labs. “I’m excited to formally step into my new role at On Side. Our team has repeatedly achieved top KPI rankings as measured by our customer and insurance client surveys, as well as our own internal reports. On Side’s corporate mandate is to provide ‘best in class’ customer service and communication and our Markham team more than steps up to the plate to deliver against these deliverables.” She adds, “I feel lucky to be able to lead such a talented team… and our group continues to grow as testimony to the health of our business.” Just last month the Toronto-based branch beat out all other twenty On Side branches receiving the company’s coveted ‘2017 Top Performer / Customer Service Score’ Award. Another recent On Side appointment includes new project manager, Jeremy Burwarsh who comes to the company with over seven years of project management experience. His versatile construction skill set was developed via his hands-on roles completing roofing, concrete projects, siding and interior finishing. With IICRC WRT and ASD certifications, and his ‘can-do’ attitude, On Side is delighted to bring Mr. Burwash into the fold of our high-achieving, Toronto emergency restoration team.
