Recently, we rearranged the duties of a few people and promoted a few of our employees, inspiring several to reach into a new area or learn a new skill.
Villanueva, who works on both interior and exterior jobs, enjoys detail painting work the most. The thorough training he’s received also supports the company’s attention to detail.
10-year veteran painter and foreman, Luis Alas particularly enjoys interior cabinet painting projects and other challenging but rewarding painting work.
15-year veteran painter and foreman, Gary Benton, prefers to manage exterior painting projects. He’s overcome just about every exterior painting challenge.
Fine Paints of Europe (FPE) expert, Kenny Ebright, recently celebrated 25 years with Holtz. It takes a lot of patience to work with FPE. Kenny helps train new employees.
Painting estimator and 10-year H. J. Holtz & Son veteran, Travis Gibson, was inspired by friends to join the company, but the family atmosphere is why he’s still here.
Women are at the center of H.J. Holtz and Son Painting & Wallpapering, and have been so for decades. Today, they are working at every level of operations.
Jack Faya and Jose Perez celebrate long tenures at H. J. Holtz & Son. Jose moved from California and Jack from Togo after fleeing civil war.
Painting foreman Robert Ferrell enjoys doing the kind of brush work that makes most people cringe: edges and windows.
“I’m a trim man, really,” he says. “I just love it.”
This month, Ferrell celebrates his 20th anniversary as an employee of H.J. Holtz & Son. He was hired by company president Rick Holtz, who refers to Ferrell as “family.”
