Meet Our Owners & Understand Our Mission
Owners Dara White and Colby Geiser founded ColbyCo Painting in 2017. They felt the area needed a team of painting experts who could consistently deliver high-quality applications and a client experience unlike any other team of residential or commercial painting contractors. At ColbyCo Painting, the services we offer are provided with the professional attitude of getting the job done right the first time, every time! Whether your project is big or small, we stand behind our brand promise: “Every Detail Matters.”
Colby Geiser served as Director of Sales and Production for World Painting Company, a national leader in the painting industry, from 2003 to 2015. Here he handled the bidding, client management, quality control, scheduling/production and design aspects for $6-7 million worth of projects on an annual basis. However, his role at World Painting did not always allow him to be part of each project from start to finish.
Colby’s passion is “on the projects.” After he left World Painting, Colby teamed up with Dara White to create ColbyCo Painting with a world-class focus on quality workmanship and the client experience for residents of central Illinois.
Dara White grew up working in her family’s contracting firm which provided building, remodeling and painting services in Bloomington, Illinois, and southern Florida.
Since a very young age, Dara enjoyed being involved with projects and learning the trades. By the time Dara completed high school, she had already acquired investment real estate. She then went on to work for a franchise development company, where she gained a tremendous amount of knowledge working with hundreds of businesses in many different industries all over the world.
Dara enjoys managing the administrative components of ColbyCo Painting while also working on-site with custom design-build cabinetry and closet projects.
