Jerry Burns, CEO, has successfully owned and operated disaster-recovery businesses for more than 41 years. In 1970 Jerry relocated from Michigan and bought a cleaning franchise. For five years straight his franchise became the number one dealer in sales and service throughout the U.S. and abroad.
In 1981 Jerry started a restoration business in Florida called Burns Services which specialized in Commercial and Residential Insurance Repair. Burns Services was positioned as one of the largest restoration companies in the southeast United States when Jerry sold it in 2003.
In 2003, Burns Services merged with three other disaster restoration companies to form InStar Services Group. Jerry was appointed Chief Operating Officer and was the largest individual shareholder.
In 2006 InStar Services Group was sold. Jerry left InStar and started BRC Restoration Specialists, Inc. Now with offices in Tampa, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Myers and Jacksonville as well as its corporate headquarters in Safety Harbor, BRC Experts are capable of responding immediately throughout Florida, but can be dispatched anywhere within the state for disaster response.
