At re:fab, we work with the goal of “Everyday Until It’s Finished” as our internal motto.

Leadership

David Moura

CEO

Driven by a fierce entrepreneurial spirit and the belief that a trusted, true-to-its-roots family business could deliver industry leading contracting services, Dave has grown re:fab, from a local painting company to a New England one-stop-shop painting and renovation enterprise, over the last 30+ years. Under his leadership, the re:fab team has won numerous awards for outstanding overall client service as well as outstanding service for commercial clients with multiple locations.

Dave is also the President of our sister brand, re:fab Living, and has been a Licensed Broker in the Real Estate business for over 20 years.

Constantly elevating his team, giving back to the community and finding unique solutions to industry challenges keep Dave busy – along with his five children, wife, Cheryl and several dogs and horses.

Paul Gray

Estimating & Project Management

Paul Gray got his start in the painting industry 36 years ago as a painter for a Westerly RI-based contractor. A year later, he started painting for College Pro. Paul went into painting because he needed a job and wanted to learn a skill. After 36 years, we think it’s safe to say he learned how to paint!

Over the last three decades, Paul has been in many positions within the painting industry, from painter, foreman, franchise manager, franchise owner, sales and operations manager, estimator, and everything in-between. Being in several departments within painting industry, Paul has gained the knowledge and the know-how when it comes to all things paint.

Paul has also worked for many painting contractors, from local contractors in Connecticut, to national ones all over New England. Paul has earned many awards from previous companies, including Northeast Commercial Sales Associate of the year, twice.

Paul’s 36+ years of experience is a true advantage for our already well-seasoned team and for our clients. Paul brings not only a different set of eyes to every project, but he brings the experience to show his know-how to the rest of the team, whether they have been in the industry for 1 or 30 years.

Some fun facts about Paul are:
- He loves to run road races, play golf and play disc golf with his girlfriend, Tracey. He also likes to attend sporting events and travel with his *limited funds*.
- The most important thing he has learned in the last five years is that small minute changes on a day-to-day basis, lead] to huge changes over a long period of time.
- Some TV shows that he is ashamed to admit he loves is World Wresting Entertainment Raw and Smackdown
- The best place he has traveled to is the Bahamas. Why? Because "it's the BAHAMAS!!"

Wayne St. Cyr

Estimating & Project Management

With over 30 years of business development experience working in various industries, Wayne’s personable approach to working closely with various groups of people, makes him an invaluable member of our team.

Mark McLinden

Estimating & Project Management

Mark started in the building materials and services in the late 70's focusing on residential paint and electrical material sales. Branching out into hard surfaces of tile, laminates, and stone, he sold to residential clients and builders, then moving into commercial tooling sales and services.

In the Mid 90's, Mark became an architectural specifications salesperson, calling on New England architects and interior designers, working to find the right performance materials for commercial and residential projects with various hard surface materials. Working with both nationally recognized brands, he fought to keep and improve market share, while also building brand awareness of other, lesser-known brands, building "Brand Champions" and increasing sales.

In the last 2 years, Mark learned a new appreciation of commercial project estimation, the challenges and the steps required to bring a bid to clients requesting pricing.

Throughout his growth, some important tenants are ingrained in him:
- Listen, clarify, and listen again.
- It's not the sale, it's the relationship you want.
- Do what you say when you said you were going to do it.
- If you can't get it done in time, communicate.
- Show up.
- Find the clients problems, help them see it and feel the pain, get them to ask you to solve it, not sell them on a solution first.
- Show appreciation.
You are part of a team; the team wins because it takes a team to win.
