Brian Mitchell – CEO/Founder
Brian has been in the construction industry since 2002. While attending school at UC Davis, Brian was eager to learn about business. Brian was awarded a coveted internship working with a large bay area company in which he was responsible for starting up and running a small branch of a painting business. Brian chose to do this in his home town of Albany, CA. For the next two years Brian dedicated countless hours to his pursuit and went on to be one of the company’s top performers. Upon Graduation from Davis, Brian was recognized by a competitor and was actively recruited to run, first a district, and then a division of that company. Brian again set records for both quality and in turn revenue over the next few years. Brian was then promoted to Vice President where he worked for a few years and then decided to start Signature Painting and Construction, Inc. Shortly after Signature was formed, Brian was approached by a prominent Manager/Owner of a number of apartment communities in the North Bay. They solicited his help in painting and performing some smaller construction jobs on some of his properties. Upon completion, Brian decided that he wanted to concentrate his focus on the HOA, Multi-Family, and Commercial sector due to its growth potential. Signature has performed numerous painting, construction, and roofing projects for property manages, building owners, and investors throughout Northern California since then and is a household name in this sector. Brian attributes the success of Signature Painting and Construction to the elite team of industry professionals that they have assembled and their ability to build great relationships with the clients that they service.

Yama Sekander – Project Manager Painting
Yama has been working in the Commercial, HOA, & Multi-Family Painting Industry for over 20 years. He started his career working for one of the largest painting contractors in Northern California. Yama began his career at the bottom, he started as a helper on a crew. It didn’t take long for Yama to be recognized and a true leader and talented painter. He quickly worked his way up to become a foreman within a year and a half, making him the youngest foreman in that company’s history. Yama gradually moved on and gained a lot of experience with two other Bay Area Firms where he helped to develop systems that greatly increased production efficiency. In 2007, Yama was hired onto Signature Painting and Construction as a foreman, but, as we soon learned, Yama’s talents stretched beyond a foreman. Signature was growing quickly with Yama’s leadership in the field and he was quickly promoted to Superintendent and then to the role of Project Manager for the entire Northern California Division. When Yama is not working he enjoys working out, spending time with his children, and coaching the local youth football team in Concord.
