In 1976, Jim Millner knew early on that he wanted to work in the painting industry. In high school he worked for his uncle’s painting company and then started his early career as a painter at a hospital. In 1996 he meet Einar Skretting, then owner of Squarehead and started subcontracting for him doing wallpaper installation and painting. The following February, at the request of Einar, he put his company on hold and went to work for Squarehead as a superintendant and by 2001 became vice president. At that time his job included project management, estimating and overseeing the daily operations. Through the years he learned many skills such as drywall finishing, residential and commercial wallcovering, tile work, and carpentry. In 2004, Einar noticed the value and potential Jim brought to the table and offered him the opportunity to purchase Squarehead which he accepted. To better improve his company he brought his wife Michele Millner aboard in 2006 as Vice President and co-owner. Michele quickly made improvements to the human resource side of the business. This allowed Jim to do what he does best and that is to oversee the painting and wallpaper projects with his project manager and foremen. Even today you may find Jim out in the field painting or doing whatever is necessary to get the job done. This is a career that Jim truly loves and enjoys and looks forward to many more years at Squarehead before passing the “brush” to the next generation.
