Bensenville, IL (Grassroot Newswire) - DKI Services Corporation, the parent company of Disaster Kleenup International, Inc., North America's largest property damage restoration organization, today announced that it has strengthened its corporate team with the appointment of Ken Larsen as a Business Development Director. Larsen will be responsible for working across the DKI organization to develop new programs that benefit DKI's members, clients and corporate staff.

Prior to joining DKI, Larsen was a Large Loss Drying Coordinator with BMS Catastrophe where he prepared and monitored disaster preparedness plans and procedures, as well as evaluated and managed drying techniques on large projects. He also spent several years with DriEaz Products as an educator, teaching many IICRC-approved curricula such as the ASD and WRT courses, as well as several state-approved continuing education classes for adjusters. Earlier in his career Larsen spent 16 years as the owner of CR Restorations, Ltd in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Larsen has developed an impressive set of credentials in the restoration industry over many years. A prolific writer and speaker in trade publications and at industry conferences, Larsen was awarded ASCR's Golden Quill Award in 2004. Larsen has served on the boards of several industry organizations, including the Property Claims Forum of California, the ASCR's MHSI Council, ASCR's Allied Associations Committee, and the Carpet Cleaners Institute of the Northwest, the latter of which he served as president in 1997. He holds 16 different IICRC certifications, and holds the two highest designations awarded by ASCR - Certified Restorer and Water Loss Specialist.

"We are delighted to add an individual with Ken's level of industry experience and relationships to our organization," said Dale Sailer, president of DKI. "We will seek to build on his unique perspective which will add strategic value to the DKI membership and our many clients."

Larsen will be based in Dallas, TX.
