On Side Restoration Announces New London Branch Manager, Derek Van Geffen

LONDON, Ontario – On Side Restoration Services Ltd. is pleased to announce that Derek Van Geffen has joined On Side as Branch Manager for the London, Ontario branch.

Mr. Van Geffen, a London Ontario native, shared that “Having forged new ground on the claims side, managed large property loss projects, and having led business development initiatives, stepping into this key role for On Side London now is a logical next step.”

“We’re very happy to have Mr. Van Geffen join us. His depth of expertise and knack for business development are great assets that complement our already strong and growing team. And the timing couldn’t be better, as we continue to ramp up our coverage throughout Ontario,” shared Jay Kielt, Regional Manager Ontario and Atlantic.

Mr. Van Geffen’s background also includes experience gained during the 2016 Fort Mac CAT, where he spearheaded a claims support program for a team of appraisers and clients. Van Geffen proudly holds the following training certifications: OCT, AMRT, FSRT, WRT, ASD, WHIMIS, Asbestos Worker and Supervisor, with Xactimate certifications, Levels 2 & 3, already underway. Long-time industry colleagues can also attest that he plays golf with almost the same intensity as he works in the field.
