The Team

“We are only as good as those we surround ourselves with,” said Mark as he proudly referred to two key team members that he feels will be instrumental in the growth of Paul Davis of Central San Diego County.

James Lindsey (Mitigation Manager)
James is responsible for the mitigation team and team members in the field, as well as lending his field knowledge and background to assist in estimating. James has worked with Mark for the last 6 years. He brings years of experience in mitigation as well as estimating and will be responsible for demonstrating and reinforcing the “Paul Davis Way” for all current and future technicians.

Cameo Mello (Office Controller/ JCA)
Cameo will wear many hats in the new organization. She will use her administration background to fill the Job Cost Accounting (JCA) role and handle the company’s bookkeeping, vendor relations, and office management. Her marketing experience and construction relationships will aid in her responsibilities to market locally and generate new residential and commercial businesses. Her years of experience in construction project management will help her understand and accelerate the growth of this new Paul Davis office.

Why Paul Davis

“Everyone knows the first year in business is critical. Most companies don’t survive. For those who do, many survive on life support for a few years longer before going under. We could have gone independent or chosen any other national franchise company. However, we felt that the national brand recognition of Paul Davis brought great value to us and our growth. While Paul Davis is not the biggest player, we believe the Paul Davis reputation was superior to all other national franchise companies in our industry. Paul Davis has a great brand and we’re looking forward to helping spread that brand across the west coast.”
