WASHINGTON, May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- EasyPaint, an on-demand platform that connects users with professional painting services, today announced that Kelly Kambs, has been hired as Chief Revenue Officer to lead all revenue-generating processes, including sales and marketing, new market expansion, and strategic partnerships. She will split her time between EasyPaint's Los Angeles and San Francisco offices.
Ms. Kambs most recently served as Senior VP of Behr in Santa Ana, Calif., one of the largest suppliers of high-quality paints, primers and stain product for consumers, architects and design professionals.
EasyPaint, a Washington DC-based startup, has gained momentum and several high-profile projects after launching in the DC-area less than 18 months ago. The company continues to see major growth each month, leading to this expansion of the leadership team.
Ms. Kambs brings more than 20 years of building products experience to the position, with a proven track record of generating solid revenue and margin growth. She has held leadership positions at PPG, United States Gypsum, Johns Manville, and Comex, and will parlay her in-depth industry experience to expand EasyPaint's share of the $50B U.S. painting service market. "I've been watching EasyPaint and admiring its growth for some time, and am truly impressed with the leadership as well as the technology. EasyPaint is changing the process in which paint is purchased and applied in a very short timeframe," says Kambs.
Relentless focus on providing the best service to its customers has led to the company's success to date. "To build a company that can help customers in the best possible way, you need to have the best possible people involved," says Marty Cornish, CEO of EasyPaint. "Kelly is one of those people who you just know is a standout performer from the first minute you talk with her."
Cornish and EasyPaint COO Denis Abrams, former Benjamin Moore CEO, have seen demand require the company to grow and refine its business at a fast pace. "Every company I've been involved with has been an exciting challenge for me during its growth, but with EasyPaint things tend to happen a bit more rapidly," Abrams says. "I'm especially happy to add a talented leader to our team like Kelly, who has not only the experience to navigate the fast-paced journey, but also the determination and drive to help make this company successful long term."
The addition of Kambs to the leadership team bolsters EasyPaint's diverse industry experience, which includes advisors Scott Abbott, former CEO of Five Star Painting, and Aaron Lee, former CTO of The Home Depot. EasyPaint and its supporters remain focused on achieving its mission – to provide customers with the world's most trusted and convenient painting experience available. The company will be entering Los Angeles in June 2016, as well as two yet-to-be-announced markets later this year.
