Highland Roofing Company, a woman-owned commercial roofing concern based in Raleigh, N.C., recently announced Javier Alvarez was hired as the firm’s new service construction manager overseeing quality control and safety for its service team.
In a news release, the company also noted that Alvarez, who brings more than nine years of experience in both commercial and industrial roofing to the position, will assist in the management of larger roof repair projects, perform crew safety audits and help with the onboarding of new technicians.
“Javier has demonstrated significant quality and safety performance through his leading accomplishments on both our production and service teams,” said Jeanette Omdalen, president and principal of Highland Roofing. “Promoting him to Service Construction Manager will enhance our commitment to providing exceptional and quality service.”
The firm, a HUB-certified contractor, has a second location in the port city of Wilmington, about 130 miles southeast of the Raleigh-Durham metropolitan area. The company’s HUB, or Historically Underutilized Business, certification, is a company-level diversity accreditation issued by a government agency, typically the state, denoting a concern that is principally owned and operated by a minority or marginalized group, like women and people of color.
“Javier has consistently proven that he has strong leadership characteristics that can propel our service department operations to the next level,” DJ Dean, Highland’s service department manager, said.
Alvarez, for his part, expressed enthusiasm for the opportunity, saying, “I am excited to serve in this new capacity and ensure an exceptional experience for our customers.”
