Meet the Team

Meet Your Estimator Brandon King!

Brandon King was born and raised in Manchester, New Hampshire. He worked as a technician for another company, and quickly advanced to Operations Manager. During that time he oversaw a crew of more than 20 technicians and assistant technicians. Brandon managed both commercial and residential projects while ensuring a smooth customer service experience.

Now Brandon works here, at Peniel Environmental, where he is our Director of Mitigation.

"One of my proudest moments working for Peniel would be when I was responding to an elderly woman's water damaged home. When I arrived, she was in tears that her home had so much damage. Over the course of three days, our team turned those tears into a smile. We took great care to preserve as much of the home as possible; she was pleased with the care we provided. Helping people each day makes me proud of what I do!"

One of Brandon's most embarrassing times at Peniel would be when he was excited about winning a difficult job....

“I came downstairs to make a copy and since I was excited about winning the job, I jumped on the last step and smacked my head on the door frame causing me to fall to the ground”

Working at Peniel has been great, lots of learning, fun, and excitement. I've learned 3 valuable lessons here 1. Don't let your failures define you. 2. If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door! And 3. Never stop learning!

When Brandon is not in the office or the field, he's usually enjoying his family. He is an avid hockey player, and you may also find him on the golf course.

Francis now works in a management position at Peniel Environmental where he specializes in Mitigation including overseeing water and fire projects and on-site training and development of the field crews whether it be smaller residential projects to large loss commercial businesses.
