Darren Hudema has been named Senior Account Manager for Dri-Eaz Products. Darren’s duties will include key account and restoration distribution management.  

“I’m glad to be coming back to a company with such a great reputation in the industry,” said Darren, “I look forward to helping Legend Brands implement its goals to diversify and strengthen its position in the market.”

A native of Vancouver, Canada, Darren has been involved in restoration and cleaning for more than twenty years. He started as a carpet tech and quickly moved on to establish his own cleaning and restoration company. Darren came to Dri-Eaz in 2000 in a dual role as a sales account manager and as an instructor in the company’s busy restoration training program.

Beginning in 2007, Darren established Darren S Hudema Training & Consulting Services, an education and consulting company specializing in restoration claims consulting and in training programs for certifying indoor air quality professionals through the IICRC. During this period he consulted on numerous losses, including a number of large losses related to Hurricane Ike in 2008. He also continued to work for Dri-Eaz Education as a contract instructor.

“Darren has established a strong track record both in sales and in restoration expertise,” said Steve Fane, Sales Manager at Dri-Eaz.

Darren has a WLS designation from the ASCR and is also a Certified IICRC Master Textile Cleaner, Master Fire and Smoke Restorer, Master Water Restorer, and an approved IICRC instructor. In the course of his career he has published numerous articles in trade journals and has trained more than 4,500 water damage restoration professionals.

Darren will be based in Tennessee at the Dri-Eaz facilities in Nashville.
