owners, along with their staff, received the Paul Davis Restoration GEM Award for superior work along with altruism and compassion shown in the north Florida and north central Florida franchise office territory during the Paul Davis Restoration annual convention in Palm Beach, Fla. The local office received the honor with more than 400 of their peers in attendance at the annual corporate awards banquet.

The GEM Award is not necessarily presented each year; however it is only presented to a Paul Davis office owner who exhibits exemplary achievements and heads up a team of professionals who participate in ongoing service performed in the community. The award is voted on by Paul Davis Restoration corporate leaders and franchise owners for exceptional customer service and demonstrating care about those who live in the communities served.

“The award brings value to all of us and sets an outstanding example to those in the Paul Davis Restoration network and to those who live and work in the territory. The honor also helps to improve our brand in the marketplace through good work and true leadership,” said Marguerite Mumford. The Mumfords opened their business in Jacksonville in 1995, and purchased an existing office in Gainesville, Fla., in April 2010.

The office team was also honored for being instrumental in starting what is now known as the Paul Davis Restoring America program. Based on the success of the first project in 2000, Restoring America is now a year-round initiative with office owners, staff, and volunteers who donate their time and skills to help recipients in need.

Since the office first opened, Marguerite and Mike Mumford, along with their staff and local subcontractors and vendors, have volunteered to help those in need. They have donated time, labor and materials through a multitude of community service projects and giving back to the community. In 2010, the office along with hundreds of volunteers completed a variety of community service projects for a diverse group of individuals.
