Painting Professional: Mark Woodson

Mark Woodson is celebrating his 15th year work anniversary at H.J. Holtz & Son Painting and Wallpapering this month. But for a slight detour, it could be a 20-year anniversary.

Fifteen years ago, Woodson was presented with a job opportunity that appeared to be even better than the position he had at the time. So he left Holtz & Son. Four years later, he was back.
“I thought [the other job] was a better opportunity, but it wasn’t,” he says now. “I knew that I’d left a good company, and I knew what I could come back to: plenty of work, good-hearted people, a good family.”
