John Williams – CertaPro Painters® of Columbus, Ohio

Franchise Owner Name: Paul Darche

john williamsJohn Williams first started working for CertaPro Painters® of Columbus twenty years ago, at the age of 18. In 2012, John’s life took a pivotal turn as he served time in prison for drug-related issues. After serving his time, John decided to commit to his sobriety and become the best version of himself, including his career as a painter.

Since this commitment, he has worked diligently to evolve himself. John has come to understand that no one is more responsible for the quality of his work than he is. CertaPro Painters® of Columbus now relies on John heavily–he has produced some of our most important work and a few of our largest projects. He has shaped himself into the example that CertaPro® is looking for out of their crews all over the country. He said of himself recently, “Seeing people happy with my work, and seeing what I have accomplished, gives me more of a high than the drugs ever did.”

John Williams is the epitome of CertaPro Painters® core values, including the focus on continuous improvement. John has noted that having good people surrounding him, and knowing those people believe in him, helped him stay on track at work and in life.

John has now been sober for over 5 years.

Jonathan and his crew members Misael Martinez and Sergio Martinez are incredibly hard-working. They completed 41 jobs in just nine months last year. We trust this team to handle some of our most complicated projects. A few of their recent jobs have included a cathedral-style church interior, and the interior of a large retail store. Jonathan is a very adept painter and is always eager to expand his skill set. Whether it’s learning how to operate boom and scissor lifts, figuring out how to interpret elevations, learning how to operate a floor grinder, or applying new types of epoxy paint, Jonathan always rises to the challenge. Despite challenges such as overnight, out of town, or weekend projects, Jonathan ensures that customers are always updated throughout the process and that they’re given a final “pride walk” once the project is complete to showcase the final product and explain the work that’s been done.

He is not only a skilled painter, but an excellent communicator and team player. When sales or production staff have a problem pricing a complicated project, they ask Jonathan.
