Marietta native new owner of CertaPro Painters
Marietta native Mike Shipp is the new owner of CertaPro Painters of Marietta.
Prior to the purchase of the business, Shipp spent the past 14 years with Grainger Industrial Supply, where he held managerial positions and lead a sales team in Northwest Georgia.
“At Grainger, I was instrumental in developing strategies and executing plans for some of our largest customers; helping them become more profitable and efficient in the process,” Shipp said. “This created a desire to use the skills and experience I had acquired during my corporate career and operate my own business. In addition, I was attracted to CertaPro Painters because of the business model and the support that each of the franchisees receive. As a husband and father of two young children, CertaPro Painters offers both a business and a culture where I can see myself thriving. This is what I was looking for as the next chapter of my career.”
CertaPro has been consistently ranked No. 1 by Entrepreneur magazine in its category and boasts a customer referral rate that exceeds 95-percent.
