President & Senior Estimator

Chris started painting with his brothers Mike and Stan during summer breaks when he was 13 years old. At that time, he earned $20 for often what turned out to be a 12 hour work day. Over the next several years, Chris continued working with his brothers until they left for college. Chris then ran Urban Bros. for several years while attending College of Marin. He eventually took leave from the company and paid his way through San Jose State University, where he received a B.S. in Marketing and graduated with honors. Today, Chris serves as president of Urban Bros. Painting, and is also the senior estimator. Chris lives with his wife and two children in Kentfield. He values spending time with his family, and enjoys cycling and almost any outdoor activity.



CEO & Production Superintendent

Jim began painting with Urban Bros. in the mid 70’s, and has worked with the company continuously since then. He worked to pay his way through College of Marin, and worked through Golden Gate University, where Jim graduated with honors. Jim’s dedication and tough standards have earned him the respect of the crews in the field. In many ways, Jim drives the company at the point where the rubber meets the road: in the field, on site, producing top-quality paint jobs. Jim has been married 25 years, and is the proud father of a eleven year old son and 8 year old daughter. He enjoys gardening and camping with his family.




Estimator & IT Manager

Jeff began his painting career with Urban Bros. in the early 80’s, during high school. Working in the field, on and off for ten years, Jeff developed an acute understanding of the painting trade, and the important management skills associated with overseeing projects. Jeff earned a B.S. in Business at San Diego State University, with an emphasis in Information Systems. After five years of developing small business applications for EDS, a major data processing company, Jeff returned to Urban Bros. Painting in order to better utilize his natural aptitude for customer relations. In addition to his primary duty as a lead estimator, Jeff uses his skills as a systems engineer to automate and organize the company’s offices. Jeff and his wife, Rebecca, have two sons and a daughter. Jeff enjoys tennis, cycling, snowboarding, basketball and other outdoor activities.



Sean began his career with Urban Bros. over seventeen years ago. As a seasoned journeyman painter, his talent and leadership abilities soon earned Sean a position managing small projects. Sean’s knowledge of the industry and his ability to work with customers, soon elevated him to a top foreman’s position, and then onto his latest pursuit as a salesman and estimator. Sean’s nearly 20 years of experience in the trade make him an important part of the Urban Bros. Painting team. In his free time, Sean enjoys a variety of activities including motorcycling, snow boarding, and hiking.
