"We all support each other. It’s always hard to see employees retire and leave the company, but they will always be members of the Boak family.” - Sam Boak
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (PRWEB) October 27, 2020
Boak & Sons, Inc. is a residential and commercial exterior contracting company based in Youngstown, Ohio. Sam Boak, president and founder of the company, started it back in 1974 with his father. Since then, he’s had many employees who have worked for him for decades at a time. Two of those employees, Regina Fisher and Sam Febo, have announced their retirement this year.
Sam Febo worked for 10 years in the Commercial Roofing Department at Boak & Sons, Inc. He was a member of the Union Local #71 and specialized in installation and repairs of flat roofing materials.
“Sam was an incredible team member,” said Chris White, vice president of operations at Boak & Sons, Inc. “We’re so happy that he’s able to finally relax and enjoy his retirement with his family, but he will be greatly missed. We wish him the absolute best.”
Regina Fisher is also retiring this year after spending several years as their Insulation Department Administrator. Fisher retired the first time from Boak & Sons in the early 2000’s, but Sam Boak missed her so much that he convinced her to come back in 2013. This year, Fisher decided to retire for good.
“Reggie was one of the hardest spots to fill here at Boak & Sons,” said Sam Boak. “So hard in fact that we begged her to come back! We can’t thank her enough for all she’s done for the company. We’re proud of her accomplishments and hope she spends every day of retirement doing what she loves most, which is spending time with her family.”
Boak & Sons has over 165 employees, and many of them have been working in the field or the office for multiple years; some even decades. Sam Boak says the secret to a career at Boak & Sons is being treated like family.
“We treat our employees as our own family here,” said Sam Boak. “That’s the reason people stay. They are appreciated, valued, respected and loved. We all support each other. It’s always hard to see employees retire and leave the company, but they will always be members of the Boak family.”
