Michael Hosto, President of 1-800-BOARDUP, Inc., a nationwide network of professional emergency responders committed to serving the needs of disaster victims, public safety professionals and the insurance claims community.
Michael Hosto created the 1-800-BOARDUP Mission Statement in 2011. Our mission at 1-800-BOARDUP is to assist those organizations who share our commitment to help victims of disaster. Although we are a for-profit company, our true success is measured in our ability to effectively serve those in need and will never be measured by dollars & cents alone. We are committed to a higher purpose and a road less traveled. We make business decisions based upon our unwavering commitment to our core principles and values; those principles and values are not influenced by profit. Because we view working relationships as commitments, we are selective about who we choose to work with and we place the highest value upon opportunities to work with those who share our values and our commitment to doing what is right in all circumstances. I am excited and honored to have the opportunity to lead a national team of disaster recovery professionals that assist victims of disaster through the difficult recovery process.
I began my career in the late 1980's with Paul Davis Restoration as a Project Estimator and later a Business Manager. I left Paul Davis Restoration to become an independent restorer and later a large loss claims adjuster. After returning to the restoration industry in 1999 I discovered an opportunity to help both disaster victims, and the public safety officials & disaster restoration contractors that serve their needs.
Together with a team of committed and capable professionals we have built a national organization of disaster recovery professionals that serve this unique market niche. Today we have 108 locations that serve the needs of local public safety officials, claims professionals and fire victims across the USA. We are leaders in our market niche. We continue to seek out forward thinking leaders in the public safety, claims and disaster recovery communities who have similar values and seek to have a profound impact on the industry.
