Meet the SBS Team: Hans Gervais

Incident Coordinator Hans Gervais has been with Star Breakdown Service (SBS) for 18 months. Hans was born in Haiti and came to the United States at a young age which is why he can speak Creole, English, and French—”in that order”, he adds. After high school, Hans joined the U.S. Navy, spending 4.5 years as an Aviation Boatswain Equipment Mate. After retiring from the Navy, Hans’ sisters, who worked for a transportation and supply chain products provider, introduced him to the industry. Hans worked at that company for five years prior to joining the SBS team as one of our Incident Coordinators. In his spare time, Hans enjoys watching anime, tv shows, and movies—he particularly enjoys all things Sci-fi, including Star Wars and Star Trek.

We are pleased to have Hans on our team as he not only brings a wealth of experience to our team, but he also has a talent for making the entire team laugh with his outgoing, hilarious, and witty personality! Keep reading to learn more about Hans.
