BOSTON (December 13, 2018) — Disaster restoration expert, Jake Hart, has been named the General Manager of SERVPRO of Boston. His experience in all areas of disaster relief will help ensure residents and business owners along the city’s historic harbor can continue to rely on their local SERVPRO for immediate, high quality services.
