I grabbed my first brush when I was only 8 years old. My grandfather hired me most summers to paint parts of his house. He taught me how to run a business and how to paint.

It wasn’t until I was 18 years old that I began an interest in running a painting company as my calling. I enrolled in painting, equipment, and product courses.

In the summer of 2002 I received more instruction on painting and business leadership. I also began to take on more projects. In 2009 I was hired by Certapro Painters as a crew foreman, and I worked as a subcontractor  for our competitors such as Remdal painting and Restoration and Prostar Painting. My team and I completed many residential and commercial projects and took pride in a perfect customer experience record for them and our own. Later that year I decided to part ways and focus in my company.

It was in 2009 that Michael decided to open up Primus … a company that would build trust through integrity and commitment to get the painting job done right. In 2011 Primus Pro Painters became registered with the Better Business Bureau and has consistently received “A+” ratings. Primus Pro Painters doesn’t receive any complaints or poor reviews and has been nominated for a number of BBB awards.

When asked what made him start his own company, Michael replied, “I worked for other companies and it was frustrating for me to work for an employer that was fine with skipping critical steps and rolling over the customer. I couldn’t stand the idea of having a customer pay for sub-par work so I ended up putting my own money and time to make it right! I love to involve the customer through the entire process of the job and I also like to see the happy faces when they see the end result.”
