Coming from a lineage of entrepreneurial craftsmen, Gerry grew up under the tutelage of a hardworking, business-owning grandfather who passed on to him the mastery of many trades. After getting his contractor’s license in the 1980s, Gerry first pursued residential remodels and commercial tenant improvements as well as building custom and spec homes.
His first-hand experience and wide-reaching command of the trades sets Gerry apart from many of his peers. In the 1990s, he met Advanced Painting Founder Allen Moser. They forged a working relationship that still endures today. Gerry undertook the execution of all of Advanced Painting’s wood repair contracts, eventually supervising the company’s wood and paint projects. Combining their unique strengths enabled Gerry and Allen to grow the company’s foothold and reputation in the marketplace. In 2015, Gerry was elected CEO and President of Advanced Painting & Wood Repair, bringing to the company a fresh energy and a renewed commitment to quality, honesty and reliability.
