Father, husband, painting business owner (www.catchlightpainting.com), PCA volunteer Director then Chair – all of these former roles have informed my current position as Executive Director of the PCA, a steward of this venerable and storied association. What resonates most for me about the women and men who make up the membership of our association and industry is the consistent and recurring theme of bootstrapping – business owners who have built reputations and provided careers for employees, achieving success not due to advantages offered by Ivy league educations, MBAs or inherited wealth, but with grit; a dream and a hefty dose of diligence; patiently, often painfully, building a business brick by brick, year by year, weathering all the challenges that entrepreneurship offers. I am proud to have been given this extraordinary opportunity to steer this association, and excited to help direct its energy and focus toward supporting the key elements of business success – professional standards, training and education designed by and for the professional painting contractor.
