About Our Founder

Howard with his wife, Liz, the CEO of Meck Paint since May 1994.

Howard was born in Houston, Texas on January 28, 1958. He graduated from Greenville High School in 1976 and received his Bachelor of Science in Building Construction at Clemson University in 1980. He founded Mecklenburg Paint Company in 1989 and Etheredge Construction from 1999 to 2011. Howard and Liz married on September 10, 1994 and Liz became majority owner of Meck Paint in 2009. On July 29th, 2018, Howard sadly lost his two-year battle with cancer. His clients, his employees, his friends and his family can attest to making incredible memories with him over his 60 short years. Howard had a passion for the outdoors, including fishing, hunting, golfing, hiking, biking, snow skiing and traveling all over. He had the best smile and the most genuine personality. Anyone who knew him, also knew how much he loved his Clemson Tigers! We all miss him dearly but we have vowed to keep his company thriving and growing.

My philosophy has always been to grab the check before
a client has any opportunity to pay!

About Our Crews

Each approved project is assigned a Foreman to lead a crew. Each crew size is determined based on the size of the job and the urgency in which the project must be completed. Crew members are productive and efficient as a team because they understand each other’s styles and skills. Many of our foreman have been a part of our team for 10+ years. We take pride in maintaining a very low turnover rate and highly skilled painters that are trustworthy and knowledgeable of access and floor plans of many commercial and industrial facilities in Charlotte and surrounding areas. Due to the nature of our business, we do not charge any additional fees for after hours or weekend work.
