Mark Weiner has joined re:fab’s Business Development team. Mark has been in the painting industry for 42 years. Working for Sherwin-Williams for 40 years, Mark not only knows how to sell paint, but what it’s made up of and how to apply it.
During his time at Sherwin-Williams, he was an assistant manager, commerical sales rep, and specification consultant. He then went on to open his painting consultant firm for 2 years. Mark’s 42 years of experience pairs well with re:fab’s 31 years.
Before working in the paint industry, Mark worked with his dad at his real estate company. Instead of further pursuing a career in property management, Mark chose to start his career with Sherwin-Willams. We like to say he made the right choice! Over his 40 years at Sherwin-Williams, Mark won many awards including, Architectural Account Executive of the Year for Sherwin-Williams, The American’s Group. He also worked on over 5,000 projects. One of his most memorable projects was working with a team that painted the Providence Place Mall. He has also made many connections within several industries.
His specialty in the painting industry is architectural and industrial resinous floors, paints, fire proofing, sealants and marine coatings. Within his short time with re:fab, Mark has already hit the ground running and is coordinating in-house trainings for fire proofing and marine coatings. We cannot wait to offer more services to our current and future clients!
Mark believes the best way to reach a client is face-to-face or virtual. This includes spending time with them and networking through activities such as golfing.
After Mark’s first week, we asked him: why should someone choose to work with re:fab? He gave us these five reasons:
“Family and team approach.
Structure from the sales process to each business unit, follows each product to finish.
re:fab values each client.
I have found that every person within the organization is willing to help each other grow. It’s a win for them and for re:fab.
re:fab invests in training all employees on products, the latest social media, and technology.”
Mark’s favorite paint color is blue. When not working, his favorite things to do are golf, study architecture, travel, indulge in fine dining, watch college basketball, baseball and football, and go on beach vacations.
We are so excited to have Mark join our team and can’t wait to see what he can do to help re:fab and our clients. Thank you, Mark, for joining our team.
