Blackmon Mooring & BMS CAT are proud to announce and welcome Mike Brighton as Vice President of Hospitality Services. Mike will be responsible for the oversight and growth of the hospitality disaster recovery sector.
“Mike’s operational experience and knowledge of the industry is an incredible asset, that will only further our company’s reach in the hospitality vertical,” said Karee Huggins, Vice President of Sales at Blackmon Mooring & BMS CAT. “He knows first-hand what our customers need and expect, but more importantly he knows how to exceed those expectations.”

Started in 1948 as a furniture and dye shop, Blackmon Mooring has grown to become a leader in each service area it practices – from fire and water restoration to storm damage recovery. The earliest founders of Blackmon Mooring built their business on reliability, quality and superior customer service. In 1981, the company expanded its reach globally with the addition of the BMS CAT division and since then, it has responded to some of the world’s most devastating disasters. Today, the company follows the same principles it was founded upon, and always remembers that the customer is the cornerstone of the business. www.bmscat.com
