Derek Shaw

Leader, mentor, and innovative entrepreneur are just a few of the terms most often used to describe Derek Shaw, co-owner of SERVPRO of West Fort Worth.

With over a decade of experience in both the corporate world and as an entrepreneur, he brings the highest levels of leadership, business development, and entrepreneurial innovation to the organization, which sets him apart from all others. Derek is driven by a strong desire to achieve the highest levels of success in every endeavor he embarks on, then takes that success to the next level through his deeply rooted leadership and mentoring skill sets.

Derek was born and raised in Shreveport, Louisiana, where he grew up in humble beginnings, which were laced with struggles and challenges. Through this, he developed a strong work ethic and an impeccable character, which would serve him well in later years. His competitive nature came to life in his love for baseball, and his early successes earned him a full athletic scholarship to Louisiana Tech University. He graduated from Louisiana Tech with his bachelor's degree in sociology and was drafted by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. 

With a strong vision for success and driven by a deeply rooted entrepreneurial spirit, Derek entered into the corporate world and pursued a career in sales and leadership. He took on numerous roles in the medical sales industry. In each role, he earned high accolades for his expertise and quality results.

He took on that challenge and became a multi-unit area developer for Nekter Juice Bar in the DFW region. Through his highly developed skill sets, Derek gained valuable leadership experience as an executive, scaling the business, managing budgets, along with leading and mentoring staff.

Gabby Shaw

Gabby Shaw brings a sharp customer focus and disciplined work ethic as vice-president and co-owner of SERVPRO West Fort Worth. In her role, Gabrielle is responsible for leading her team of SERVPRO professionals into the future through exceptional customer service and diligent operational excellence. She oversees three locations in the DFW area.

Gabby has earned the IICRC Water Restoration Technician, Applied Structural Drying Certification, and is also a Certified Lead Renovator.

Gabrielle was born and raised in southern Louisiana, where she was exposed to the family construction business, led by her grandfather and father. At a very young age, she earned a strong work ethic through the family business and understood the importance of having a “roll up your sleeves” up attitude. Determined to find her own success, she attended Louisiana Tech University, where she completed her bachelor's degree in marketing. Throughout college, she consistently set the standard for herself very high and was recognized for her achievements.

After completing her degree, she immediately entered Corporate America with a clear determination for success. She has held positions in sales, management, and independent entrepreneurial ventures. At each step along the way, she gained valuable knowledge, expertise and leadership skills, which would serve her well in later years.

Gabrielle has also been inspired to branch out from the corporate world and explore her entrepreneurial interests, sparked from her background with the family construction business. She earned that opportunity through her ownership interests in Nekter Juice Bar in multiple locations around the DFW area. During start-up, Gabrielle gained the experience of overseeing the build-out of the sites and supervising the construction. This experience gave her great insights and expertise as an entrepreneur, which would serve her well as a SERVPRO franchisee.
