Prior to purchasing my first CertaPro Painters franchise in 2016, I spent 30+ years selling high tech software solutions into the oil and gas industry. What attracted me to join the CertaPro Painters system was having the ability to take an already proven system with the support of a large organization and run my own local small business where we deliver a highly needed service to our customers in an industry where professionalism is not always a given.
Even more important being a CertaPro owner allows me to time to spend with my family and to give back to the community. My family consists of wife Kim, daughter Parker and our rescue dog Lucy Ricardo McGillicutty Goings. The two organizations that I volunteer for are Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Autism Awareness, in fact every residential painting project I donate part of the proceeds to one of the organizations in the home owners name.
