P.A. (Brushy) McWilliams, Owner
- Brushy didn't expect to start a painting company, it just sort of happened. His father is a contractor and in Brushy's late high school years he would make a little extra cash by helping his dad on an occasional weekend and during the summer, most often doing the painting work.
It became a more reliable summer job during his college years as his father's business grew. As he neared graduation, Brushy wasn't sure if he'd be able to put his psychology degree to use but he thought he may be able to use some of the skills he learned while achieving his business minor. So he combined his experience and strong skills as a painter with his interest in business and started ColorEdge Painters.
Brushy still spends a lot of time painting and when you call us, you're most likely to talk directly with him. He's laser-focused on remarkable customer service and always looking to add another picture of a great looking project to the Gallery page.
Brushy is a big N.C. State athletics fan, and alum. He also enjoys trail running, fishing and hunting.
Lawrence (LT) Thompson, Field Supervisor
- When Brushy started ColorEdge Painters he knew that as he built his business he'd like to bring his old partner LT on board as his first employee. Of course, he'd have to convince his Dad to let LT make the move. One year after Brushy started the business he brought on LT.
LT has 25 years of home repair, construction work and painting experience. Not only is he the Field Supervisor but he's also the one who will take on most of the non-painting jobs that are part of our projects. He's one of those "MacGyver" types who seems to be able to do almost anything and make it look great.
LT enjoys mentoring younger team members. Outside of work, LT enjoys gardening and discovering new wines to share with his wife.
