My name is Gary Mercer, and I own CertaPro Painters® of Peachtree City and Coweta. Since graduating high school in Fayette County in 1981, I have been doing business in the area, working in various managerial roles. I managed Miles Ace Hardware for 18 years before founding Walker Construction Products. After ten years, I sold that business but remained on board as President for three more years. In 2011, I left to start my CertaPro Painters® franchise and have been proudly serving the Fayette and Coweta residents and business owners ever since.
Seeing the joy a painting project can bring to a family is so important to me because family plays a huge role in my life. I have been married to my wife, Debra, for over 30 years. She is a retired Fayette County Educator and now works alongside me at CertaPro Painters® in an administrative role. We have two children — one is enrolled at Mercer University, working to receive her medical degree, and the other graduated from Kennesaw State University with a Construction Management Degree.
In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, cycling, playing with my grand dog, and being with my family.
