Frank graduated from LaSalle University in 1975 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration. He began his career as a project manager for a large contractor on the West Coast. He left the construction industry to become Operations Manager for a sporting goods manufacturer. After a brief tenure there, he became a partner in a retail seafood business, which brought him back home to the Philadelphia region. In 1989, he partnered with his brother Jim and entered the masonry restoration industry, creating Jamison Contractors, Inc. After a 14-year stint of continued growth and stability, he sold the business. After a brief time away from the industry, he joined with his brother and sister to form a new company – Jamison Masonry Restoration. In 2014, Jamison merged with Mara Restoration, and Frank has maintained a key role in the management and administration of the business.
Patty began her career in the masonry restoration industry as an office administrator for a family-run business, Jamison Contractors, in 1992. Her responsibilities were numerous, including office management, sales coordination, client development & relationship management, human resources, benefit administration and more. In August 2008, Patty formed MARA Restoration, Inc., focused on developing strong relations within the government and general contracting sectors, and with private clients in the Philadelphia area. To aid in this process and provide a valuable added benefit to clientele, Mara Restoration has been certified as a Pennsylvania WBE since August 2010, as well as New Jersey and Delaware since 2011.
Jim is a consultant with Mara Restoration, rounding out and strengthening the existing team with over forty-five years of hands on experience in the masonry restoration industry. After years of owning and operating the family business Jim retired, however, he soon became restless and began work as a consultant. His direct field experience and expert technical knowledge enables him to oversee all consultation, troubleshooting, and on-site quality control field supervision. Jim’s dedication and superior masonry skills are a major contributing factor for his continued business success and his participation in continuing education programs insure his ability to stay on the leading edge of masonry restoration technology.
