H.J. Holtz & Son President speaks at national convention while the company’s work is featured on the cover of House Beautiful

RICHMOND, VA (September 6, 2016) – Richmond’s leading painting company, H.J Holtz & Son, has had a banner summer. In July the company’s President, Rick Holtz, presented at the National Painting and Decorating Contractors of America (PDCA) Residential Forum held in San Diego. Because he leads a 3rd generation family-owned business that has experienced recent growth in terms of revenue, profits, and reputation, the organizers of the conference were eager to have Rick share his insights with the attendees – painting company business owners and leaders gathered from around the country.

In his-standing-room-only talk, Mr. Holtz broke the reasons for the company’s success into four key principles: 1) get the help from business experts; 2) plan ahead vs. react; 3) align staff around company-wide goals so they can contribute toward progress; 4) create structure that empowers more people to lead efforts within the company. All of this work has translated into growth in revenue and profits, as well as both employee and customer loyalty. In support of an “ownership” mentality, the company also introduced an employee profit-sharing plan.

On the heels of the recognition that Rick received from the PDCA for his business skills, he and his team were excited to learn that their painting skills would receive national attention as well. The September issue of House Beautiful features their work on the cover and throughout an internal photo spread. As they have done on many other projects, the H.J. Holtz & Son team collaborated with renowned Richmond designer Suellen Gregory, who is profiled in the issue.
