“We don’t just…” is a phrase that PuroClean of Clackamas and Hillsboro use when explaining all the services we offer. “We don’t just” do emergency restoration. “We don’t just” help […]
Family bonds have always been important at PuroClean. Five years ago when Ben Doebler met Brian Tucker at a Starbucks in August 2015 with regards to hiring him, he had no idea that in this time they would not only have built a great friendship, but a great company together as well.
Ben, independent owner and operator of both PuroClean’s of Clackamas and Hillsboro, puts family first. After relocating his family from Tennessee and opening up the Hillsboro location in Jan 2015, he knew he had his work cut out for him. He had owned several successful business’ prior. As an entrepreneurial type, he knew what he wanted. To be able to build a great brand with great, consistent people that were like family.
As the Portland Metro Area market showed Ben that PuroClean, and how he was working his business was necessary need, he hired Brian to help out on a part time basis.
Brian proved to be an incredible worker. He came with a ton of experience, a General Contractor’s license and strong work ethic. His ability to put customers at ease during their most stressful moments, along with his integrity, struck a chord with Ben. Brian, who already had a full-time job on top of working at PuroClean, was quickly hired on full time.
The need for even more technicians began to grow and Brian stepped up to be the teacher, guide, coach which ultimately lead to his role as Operations Manager. Always willing to help, along with his ‘can do’ attitude, he is the backbone of structure and expectation for the technicians. As well as being respected by his peers, he never asks anyone to do what he would not do himself.
Along with his unfailing professionalism, he is a man with a great sense of humor, a jokester, who is almost always smiling and willing to take 5 minutes out for a chat. He has passed those traits on to two wonderful technicians that work with PuroClean, Brian Jr, and Carter, who happen to be his sons.
As PuroClean growth was gaining momentum, Brian Jr joined the team in early 2016. Ben had no doubts that Brian Jr. would be a great addition to the PuroClean family. A very hard worker himself, he also has the gift of being able to put customers at ease and work well with everyone. He moved up quickly, as well, and is currently our Mitigation Manager.
Carter came to PuroClean in 2018 and has been a great technician who is a steady and very consistent hard worker. He is the quiet one of the three, has a great sense of humor, and willing to step up to get the job done right.
The Tuckers are a welcome trio that PuroClean very lucky to have. The Father/Sons dynamic puts people at ease when they are working together in the field. Though they don’t advertise they are family on the job, they are able to anticipate each-others moves. While doing an amazing job of separating work life from home, they work cooperatively to ensure a job well done.
As the business continues to grow, the longevity of all of the employees speaks for how great of an environment it is at PuroClean of Hillsboro and Clackamas. Ben set it up well when he wanted to make sure everyone feels like family. Family bonds are important. Here is to another 5 years with Brian, who is far more appreciated than he cares to admit.
