Bud was in the field for 16 years, from apprenticeship, to journeyman, to Foreman and has been in the office estimating, project managing, and helping with human resources for 14 years.

When asked what was his favorite part of the job, he said "I enjoy the ever-changing job sites, meeting new people, and increasing my social network. I enjoy working here at WILLCO because of the environment we work in and the team atmosphere approach to pleasing the customer." Bud was the Area Director for OR, SWWA, EWA, Idaho & UTAH and also the President of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades District Council 5. As a well-rounded painting professional, Bud has seen it all and still loves providing customers with the best bid for the job.

When Bud isn't in the office or at the job site, he shops antique and second hand stores. He enjoys playing golf and hunting and fishing when the seasons allow for it. More often than not he can be found on a local hiking trail with his eight year old chocolate labor spending time with his four grandkids

Bud works diligently to provide the best comprehensive bid and experience for WILLCO's customers. WILLCO is proud to have Bud on its team. He embodies the WILLCO way with a positive attitude and always focusing on a quality result. For all your paint and home improvement needs:
