About Southern Painting

, Southern Painting Founder

Hi! I’m Mark Collins, the Founder of the Southern Painting Family. Welcome to our website!mark_collins

I graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1980 and entered the real estate and building business. My wife, Vicki, and I are the proud parents of two daughters and we have lived in the Austin area for over 10 years.

I founded Southern Painting in 1989, in Plano, Texas, after seeing the need for a professional painting company in the area. I wanted to provide homeowners with a full-service interior and exterior painting experience, using upper-tier materials and workmanship at a fair price. Using this time-tested systems approach, Southern Painting has grown to include 27 offices throughout the United States.

Total customer satisfaction has always been Southern Painting’s primary objective, hence our motto “Lots of Satisfied Customers!”. My goal -- and that of everyone in the Southern Painting Family -- is that you have such a pleasant painting experience with us that you will be proud to brag about it, and us, to your friends and neighbors.

So, give us the opportunity to discuss your painting needs and we look forward to working with you in the near future.

Sincerely,
Mark

Plano, Texas

North Dallas/Richardson
Steve MacMeekenSteve MacMeeken
I have been involved with Southern Painting since 1993 in the Dallas area and became an owner in 2000. My background of 25 years in residential home construction and remodeling created the perfect match for the job. Through the years, Southern Painting has been much more than a job - it's been a great career choice. It has created an opportunity to build a future not only for myself but one that allowed my brother, Dave, to become a part of my team and a top producer as well.  My eldest son, Corey, joined our Southern Painting team in 2012 as an Operations Manager. Southern Painting presents a franchise model perfect for fostering a family-oriented business with an equal chance to form lifelong friendships with everyone working with you as you grow your business.
