RR0712_RIA_img1_F.jpgThe Restoration Industry Association (RIA) presented its highest individual industry honor, the Martin L. King Award, to Ashley Easterby of Network Restorers at its recent 69th Annual Convention and Industry Expo in Orlando, FL, according to a press release.

Among his achievements, Easterby was able to create a strong network because he convinced restorers in the Australian market that they would receive mutual benefit by working together, and he convinced insurance carriers to give the group a chance. Easterby also established a cutting-edge, Internet-based job management system that rivals any in existence, expanded the group’s service offerings to include a TPA that administers multiple-area restoration claims for carriers, and he established a training academy to make the best minds in the global restoration industry available to his network.

Given annually, the Martin L. King Award recognizes an individual’s exceptional service and dedication to the restoration industry.

“To have been selected for the Martin L. King award from among the many highly deserving individuals is truly an honor,” said Easterby.
