Welcome to the Executives Association of Long Beach Member Directory

The long standing slogan of the association has been "Business is our Business". The Executives Association of Long Beach (EALB) was founded in 1922. It is an association of Long Beach business executives, each of whom represents his or her respective firm at the management level.

The Long Beach Executives Association is a member of the International Executives Association, a worldwide group of similar associations. It is not a service club, a social group or fraternal order. The EALB is a networking group for business owners and high level executives. It has but one unique objective: to capture the natural bond of common interest which exists between business executives and by regular weekly meetings, develop and enjoy a brand of fellowship conducive to the creation of additional and profitable business for all its members.

It does not require its members to patronize each other, but it does provide opportunities for each member to promote their products or services and it can open doors that otherwise are closed to desired business. Members of the EALB often consider the association as an extension of their own business or profession.

On Monday, October 28th The Executives Association of Long Beach met for their weekly meeting to hear from Diana Bloch of J&D Contractors. 

J&D Contractors has been in business for 40 years. The goal at J&D is to provide prompt quality service that meets and exceeds their customer's expectations. They are committed to providing responsive and personal service to all of their customers. 

J&D was originally started by James Jones in 1980 as Jim’s Plumbing. In 1984 Jim partnered with Robert Mungo and incorporated J&D Plumbing. Jim’s daughter Diana has been involved with the business since she was a teenager and in 2014 took over for her father. Diana has been an execs member since 2013. 

Diana gave us insight into what J&D offers as a plumbing business and what kind of referrals they are looking for. J&D services residential and commercial clients. The services they offer are sewer and drainline location and replacement. Backflow, sump pumps, toilets, showers, and tubs. They also work on faucets, sinks, all water heaters, and even garbage disposals. 

Some of the tools they use are video line inspection to see where the problem is and fix it. Another tool that they use is hydro jetting that allows to push through the toughest clogs while not damaging the structure of the pipes themselves. Hydro jetting can even clear tree roots. 

J&D services 24hrs a day, 7 days a week which is great if you are in a bind. J&D also take all referrals no matter how big or small the job is. If you have any questions or need any plumbing services please call Diana at J&D Contractors today!
