We are a family owned and operated painting company located in Naperville and have been servicing the Naperville and surrounding area for 35 years. Because we are family owned and operated, you will always be in contact with a family member from the start to the finish of the project. You can rest assured that all key decision makers involved in your project are family members. Please allow us to introduce you to our family:
John Wright, President – John started painting in his early 20’s and then shortly thereafter started his own painting business, which now has been in existence for 35 years. Through the years, John has constantly kept up with the current technology and what is considered to be the best materials used in the industry. John has then, over the years, modified which materials he specs out for his projects so that he utilizes only the most current products that will have superior performance. That kind of knowledge only comes from decades of experience in the painting industry. Not only is John the President of the business, but he currently is on many of the projects doing the actual painting. His knowledge of applications and coatings is the result of 35 years of experience.
Kathy Wright, V.P. Sales and Marketing – Kathy joined the business 14 years ago, after working many years in the corporate world. Kathy formerly sold on-site job training programs to the DuPage area businesses while employed with a local community college. Kathy has a wealth of managerial experience working in sales, customer service, human resources, and training. With 30+ years of customer-focused business experience, Kathy will be sure to take care of all your concerns and needs. Kathy holds a B.A. degree from North Central College, Naperville. Kathy and John are married and have 2 children.
Kathy received The Business Ledger’s 2010 Influential Women in Business Award in November of 2010, as 1 of 22 recipients, who were recognized as outstanding executives who have excelled in business, civic and personal arenas. The ceremony was held at Danada House in Wheaton. The program is in its 18th year and is in partnership with the National Association of Women Business Owners, Chicago Area Chapter. As quoted in the December 13th issue of the Ledger, Kathy stated: “I will cherish this award. I was just so honored and so humbled to be in the group of women that was in the award ceremony. It is just a great feeling.”
Dan Wright, Painting Contractor – Dan, who is John’s brother, has been painting for the business for 32 years. Dan trained initially under John’s expertis, and relies on his many years of experience so that he performs at the highest level of workmanship. For an exterior proposal, Dan, an experienced craftsman, will come to your home for a free assessment. Then, based on his expert judgement of the condition of your home, he will provide you with a detailed formal proposal. Only by having someone personally come to your residence and inspect the condition of your home can you ensure you will receive an honest, true assessment. Dan and his wife also reside in Naperville.
Chris Wright, Painting Contractor – Washington Division: John and Kathy’s son, Chris, has been painting for the company for 10 years and heads up the new Washington State Division. Chris joined the company full time, after graduating from Naperville Central High School. He worked for Paint Right Painting, Inc. while in school and learned the trade directly from president John Wright. Chris carries on the tradition of the company having a Family Member always on the job doing the painting and/or supervising the project. Chris, of course, works in all aspects of the painting, including carpentry, from Interior to Exterior, for both Commercial and Residential projects. Know that you will be in good care when Chris is in charge of your project. The Paint Right Painting Washington State Division serves the areas of Seattle/Tacoma/Olympia and in the counties of Pierce, Thurston, Mason, and Kitsap.
Liz Wright, Social Media Representative – Liz Wright, Social Media Representative, is the daughter of John and Kathy Wright. Liz manages the social media accounts of the business’s Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, as well as managing the Paint Right Painting, Inc. blog. She started to manage Paint Right’s social media presence about a year ago, while also pursuing an Associate’s Degree in General Studies. While also working part-time at a local library, she plans to pursue a Certificate in Library Science and continue to work with Paint-Right Painting part-time. Liz grew up in a household of a Family Owned and Operated business and it shows in her dedication for the social media part of the business. She brings a young, fresh perspective which will keep the business up to date in the digital world that is so important in this day and age.
In addition to the above staff, we have additional employees with our company. We only hire employees- not sub-contractors. With Kathy’s Human Resource background, she screens, interviews, and checks all references on all staff to ensure that they meet our high business standards. These staff members are not just “college painters” who learn the job as they go…but they are experienced, qualified tradesmen who have a minimum of: a) 2 years for Apprentice grade and b) 10 years’ experience for Journeymen grade, in this business. As these craftsmen join our family, they also adhere to the strict standards of business set by the President and enacted by all of the members of the family business.
