Jon Ray – Founder

PaintGreen was founded by Jon Ray, who has been painting since 1996. Jon ran a student painting franchise while going to business school at Seattle Pacific University. During this time, he learned that providing quality work and operating in an environment of integrity earned him referrals, was a great way to grow a business, and matched his personal values.

After a few years in Phoenix, AZ, Jon came to San Diego and realized there was an opportunity for an environmentally-friendly painting company. He founded PaintGreen in 2006.

In an industry where unethical behavior is far too common, Jon built PaintGreen in what he likes to call “an environment of integrity.” Customers receive high-quality painting for a fair price. Painters receive fair compensation and respect on the job. Suppliers get honest dealings.

With over 20 years of experience, Bill brings a vast experience and knowledge of painting systems to our PaintGreen team. He creates a strong level of order in our day-to-day activities, and easily earns the respect of those around him.

Always looking for improvement, Bill spends much of his time working with and training our painters and inspiring them to do their best every day.


6Our team members are chosen for their motivation, integrity and painting skills. Our painters are uniformed professionals who show up on time and work hard all day. Our clients agree that our painters are courteous and considerate of their needs (you can confirm on Yelp, Kudzu, and Angie’s List).

We paint around your schedule, taking into account things like pets, children’s nap time, and more. We are careful around flowers and plants, and protect your floors and furniture with drop cloths wherever we are painting.
