St. John’s, NL – On Side Restoration is pleased to announce that effective October 1, 2014, Lance Buffitt, current Branch Manager, Grande Prairie, AB will be relocating to become On Side’s new St. John’s Branch Manager.

Starting with On Side as a construction supervisor in 2011, Lance has made significant contributions to the company. With ambitions to advance his career, he moved up quickly to become a Project Manager and then in 2013 was promoted to Branch Manager. Lance’s experience runs deep given that he ran his own company for ten years working effectively with local adjusters and brokers.

Over the past few years Lance has played a vital role in developing the Asbestos Remediation Division at the Grande Prairie branch. This development has led to On Side becoming one of the strongest remediation companies in Northern Alberta, including multiple abatements for Alberta Health Services. Lance continues to handle many large loss claims, that span commercial, residential, fire and water losses..

“I look forward to the opportunity to help grow On Side’s market share and reputation on the East Coast. We are constantly striving for growth while always keeping our customer’s needs at the forefront”, said Buffitt.

Jeff Hall, On Side Restoration Regional Manager Ontario and Atlantic Canada, welcomes Buffitt to his new position, “We look forward to having Lance at the helm in our newest location. With his skillset we are confident that Lance will be successful in nurturing On Side’s guiding principles and suport our service-first mentality.”
