Our Story 1

How We Became The Best Local Painting Company

Our Family, Our story

Our story begins not long ago. The smell of fresh paint always sends me back 35 years to my mother’s hometown of Foxrock, a suburb of Dublin, Ireland where I would share ham sandwiches and laughs with my father and his painting crew, admiring another job well done.

At 8 years old, my brush skills and work ethic had already earned me a spot among the men, and taught me what it takes to be a successful professional: be a stickler for detail; do what you say and say what you do; and strive for lasting relationships grounded in mutual trust and respect.

Had I not been given the chance of a lifetime to journey from my native Ireland to study at Boston College, I may never have known another life. But I got the chance, took it, and soon established myself as a go-to professional in the client-centric world of financial services. Had you asked my career goals several years ago, I’d have said to continue to rise in this chosen field. But as I stepped into to my father’s painting company van my last visit home, the smells triggered dormant feelings deep within. I reflected upon what I truly want to achieve in life, and the seed of returning to my roots took hold.

I started Foxrock Painting to bring forward the Haughton family tradition of exacting craftsmanship and tireless service to a world where low expectations have, unfortunately, become too common. I hope you will allow us to earn the trust and respect that I’ve always held as non-negotiable.
