Brothers Services Company CEO John Martindale has been honored in Baltimore SmartCEO’s “Leaders We Admire” issue for his ambition in growing Brothers Services Company into one of the leading home improvement companies in the region.

The article, published in the May 2012 issue of SmartCEO magazine, chronicles Martindale’s history starting a small roofing company in the 1980s, through his graduation from Loyola’s Sellinger School of Business, and culminating in the company’s diversification into other home improvement services including siding, windows, doors, gutters and kitchen and bath remodeling.

The SmartCEO story explains the core of John Martindale and Brothers Services Company’s business philosophy:

To be great at what they do, employees at Brothers Services adhere to a set of guiding principles that Martindale says are based, in part, on his faith in God. The Brothers Way, as the company calls it, stipulates that its workers must “Treat each customer like family and their property like your own,” and to “Do what you say you are going to do.”
