The Painter’s Weekly team is led by a passionate group that has been battle-tested on the painting and small business landscape. No arm-chair quarterbacks here. Measurable results and profitability growth for our members is what motivates our team.
Brandon Lewis, B.S., M.B.A.
Director of the Marketing Department
Brandon Lewis started and grew his painting business to over $1 Million in sales and 20 employees during the worst recession since the Great Depression. He went on to sell his business for a significant profit in a still struggling economy.
Lewis applies the marketing knowledge he has gained as a political consultant to U.S. Senate, U.S. Congress, State/Local Officials, and Caucuses to the painting industry, specifically as it relates to marketing of repaint services.
With a Bachelor of Science in Marketing, Magna Cum Laude, and a Masters in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing, Brandon Lewis has the academic credentials to back up his real world experience.
An author and speaker – consummate reader of business books and a confessed audiobook addict – Brandon has a wealth of knowledge on marketing, advertising, operations, sales, and entrepreneurial leadership subject matter in the painting field.
Over 15 years of intense study pertaining to small business marketing gives him a unique insight into what works and what doesn’t when theory meets cold-hard reality for painters.
