|About||The local handyman provides some easy home maintenance tips to eliminate problems and prevent serious damage|
Tom Mills and his wife, Laurie have always dreamed of owning a business where they provide a needed service that offers great value to the customer and requires a high level of integrity and customer service. The dream became reality when Tom and Laurie Mills purchased their HandyPro Handyman Service franchise in Columbus, Ohio in November, 2010.
Tom Mills has a degree in engineering and a heart for helping people. His corporate career consisted of 25 years with a major electronics company where he progressed to the position of operations manager. Then Tom spent 11 years in the pharmaceutical industry where he retired as a director.
Laurie Mills has a professional background that covers many areas of experience including in-home care, managing a warehouse/distribution center and running the front desk of a medical center.
Tom enjoys doing his own home repairs and making improvements to his home and the homes of others who need the help. Laurie helps him keep busy with her honey-do-list which never seems to shrink! Though Tom tries to encourage her to watch the History channel, she always ends up flipping to HGTV and other DIY shows.
Giving back to the community is important to Tom Mills who has travelled to Costa Rica 3 times and Zambia once during the last 10 years to help with building projects supported by his church and through World Hope International. With their experience in management and their desire to help others, the HandyPro opportunity is a business that provides the means to do both successfully.
Tom and Laurie Mills believe one’s most important personal qualities are honesty and integrity. The HandyPro business is based on the same beliefs so it is a great fit for them.
