First Onsite Property Restoration, one of North America’s largest disaster recovery and restoration providers for commercial enterprises, has promoted Tom Ihm to Regional Director of Sales for the Mid-Atlantic Region.

Tom has been in the restoration industry for over 22 years and has a strong understanding of both day-to-day operations as well as client engagement. He was the first salesperson that A-1 Flood Tech hired back in 2001 and he led their sales team from then, until the acquisition of Flood Tech by First Onsite in 2021. 

Once the company established itself in the DC, VA, MD restoration market, Tom was able to focus on sales and client relationships. He grew the team to four account managers by the time of the acquisition. 

“I am excited about the continued success of First Onsite and the opportunity to share my knowledge of the industry to help mentor and grow the team,” said Tom Ihm, First Onsite Property Restoration.

“Building relationships with clients is an exciting part of the job, but training and coaching the team on building those relationships is the most rewarding part of being a leader.”

Tom was able to take A-1 Flood Tech into becoming the premier restoration company in the market.  Holding WRT and ASD certification he was able to communicate the value of professional property restoration for his clients in Property Management, Multi-family, Government, Hospitality and Large General Contractors.   

“We’re very excited about Tom taking the role of Regional Director of Sales for the Mid-Atlantic Region. We know that his leadership in sales will take us to the next level,” said Vince Catania, Regional Vice President, First Onsite.

Tom and his wife live in Haymarket, VA with their 2 children and dog.
