The Expert: Brittney Hensley
Owner, AR Restoration
AR Restoration was founded because of a need expressed by restoration industry owners looking for help in recovering their AR when their staff was maxed and not able to make a difference. Brittney began independently helping one company manage its AR, which then led to other companies inquiring about the same services. From that point, AR Restoration was born and has continued to grow and help many other restoration companies to recover their AR and enjoy the hands-free approach to account management.
