I had the opportunity to sit down with Don Johanson, the CEO and founder of Johanson Painting and Handyman Services in Mount Prospect Illinois. Not only has his company won the prestigious Best Picks Award eight years in a row with over 35 years of experience, Don is a true champion of small business with a unique and spectacular philosophy.  He’s also an expert in commercial and residential painting and all the integral trades that coincide with painting projects, creating a seamless experience with his clients.

As long standing members of the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America who provide us up-to-date standards in paint application, techniques, and materials, Don’s team has the most informed and skilled painters in the marketplace working in the field.

When I asked Don, who is he… Here is what he said, “Who I am… Straightforward, no BS kind a guy… likes to be positive and around and serve like-minded people with a constant strive to make things simpler and more enjoyable. No stress! Life is here to enjoy not struggle through!… Business culture… High level of communication via electronics so questions can be answered almost immediate and issues get resolved before they become problems… Business philosophy… Make the reason people buy from us is to make their life easier.
