RICHMOND, VA -- National Restorations, a furniture and cabinet restoration company specializing in assisting its insurance industry clients to quickly, professionally and cost-effectively resolve claims involving damaged furniture and cabinets, is extremely pleased to announce that Fred Molis has joined the company as Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

“We’re thrilled to have Fred join the National Restorations’ team,” says Chris Grandpre, President and CEO of National Restorations. “His rich experience, knowledge and relationships in the insurance industry will help us build our business. Fred has a strong understanding of how to enhance programs and services that assist insurance carriers to resolve claims in a fair, professional and expeditious manner.”

Molis will work to expand National Restorations relationships within the insurance industry. His goal is to develop relationships with additional insurance companies not already served by National Restorations and to develop other strategic collaborative relationships with related insurance industry service providers.

“National Restorations is unique company that is a wonderful asset to the industry,” says Molis. “Insurance companies, because of tight resources, have generally thought to replace whatever is damaged. National Restorations will make them aware that ‘repair before replace’ is a powerful option. It’s a win-win for the insurance companies and their policy holders. The insurance company can better control indemnity expense if they re-train their adjusters to pursue repairing before replacing. And repairing something will reduce the mess and hassle to the homeowner, not to mention we can help them save those family heirlooms that are priceless. I’m excited to help grow National Restorations and bring such a valuable company to the forefront of the insurance industry.”

Molis started his career in the insurance industry as a multi-line insurance claims adjuster in 1971 after graduating from Illinois State University. After a year and a half of claims handling, Fred advanced to a position with IBM working as part of a dedicated insurance team assigned to a top ten insurance carrier for the next twenty years specializing in insurance claims and solutions. Subsequently, Fred served in the position of Vice President for Xactware during its early growth years from 1992 to 1998. Most recently, Fred was Vice President Sales and Marketing at the Independent Testing and Evaluation Laboratory (ITEL).

National Restorations offers full-service furniture and cabinet repair and restoration services to insurance carriers, businesses and homeowners nationwide. The company offers a free, same-day verification of whether the damages can be repaired and restored in a cost-effective fashion. Upon receiving an assignment, all claims are carefully managed throughout the entire claim resolution process, assuring reasonable scope of work based on industry expertise and experience, confirmation of the cost-effectiveness of restoration instead of replacement, rapid turnaround timeframes to minimize disruption to the affected homeowner, and the highest quality craftsmanship backed by a five year local warranty and a national guarantee.
