Vice President, Marketing and Operations
With a background in brand development, design, and sales, Sharon Soneff brings a diversity of strengths to Advanced Painting & Wood Repair. As the owner of her own successful art licensing company, Sonnets Studios, Sharon has a strong business sense and passion for serving others with excellence and integrity. Her ties to the paint industry date back more than 30 years to the mid-1980s when she worked as a space planner and design assistant to an interior designer from the American Association of Interior Designers. In addition to selecting textiles and furnishings for their clients, paint specifications were nearly always a part of their largely commercial projects.
Her relationship with paint was forever sealed when she met and fell for a painter/contractor who performed projects for the design firm and its clients. Some years later, after Gerry and Sharon were married, Sharon worked for the Dunn-Edwards Paint Corporation where she worked in sales and gained notice as a talented color consultant. In 1991, she helped pilot the then innovative management services department for Dunn-Edwards, servicing property managers, community managers and their residents with specifications, color consultations and management support. Today Sharon can be found embracing many roles at Advanced but especially those that revolve around client relationships.
