Kevin Nolan

President

Contact: kevin@nolanpainting.com
Kevin Nolan started painting homes between classes at Villanova University. By the time he graduated in 1981, Nolan Painting had become a thriving Main Line business.

Still guiding and growing the business after more than 37 years, Kevin credits his success to loyal customers and employees including his first hire, brother-in-law Jack McLaughlin, who is still with the company as a Senior Crew Leader. Family ties and trust are very important to Kevin. And over the years, several other members of Kevin’s immediate and extended family have lent their talents and skills as Nolan Painting employees. Kevin’s two sons and two daughters all work for Nolan Painting.

Marathon Runner with a Quest

When he’s not running Nolan Painting, Kevin is often just running. Most days, he can be spotted racing around the Main Line with his friends in the Bryn Mawr Running Club. Kevin has run the Boston Marathon several times, and has completed running a marathon in all 50 states, ending with Newport, Rhode Island in October 2016!

Fast-Paced Community Service

Giving back to the community is very important to Kevin. Nolan Painting sponsors more than 75 runs a year, raising considerable money for charities. As Race Director of the Haverford Twilight Run, the Main Line Run, and the Reindeer Romp, Kevin helps annually raise $100,000 for the causes these three races support.

In addition, Nolan Painting donates tens of thousands of dollars in sponsorship to community events each year. Click here to read more about Nolan Painting’s commitment to the community. Kevin’s company never turns down a reasonable request.

Chief Financial Officer

Contact: steve@nolanpainting.com
Like many of his colleagues at Nolan Painting, Steve Nafranowicz started on the first rung and worked his way up.

When he began working at Nolan Painting as a Trainee in the summer of 1992, he knew nothing about painting. After learning the ropes for a few years as a Painter, Steve became a Crew Leader, taking pride and satisfaction in working on projects from start to finish, and transforming interiors and exteriors that were in bad shape into assets homeowners would enjoy and be proud of.

He then added working on the Advisory Board and Chairing the Training Committee to his duties.

Steve made his next big career move in 2000 when Kevin Nolan asked him to become an Estimator. About four years later he earned his current position, CFO, though he still has a hand in all aspects of the business.

Originally from Minneapolis, Steve is a husband, father of two sons and a Vikings fan. In his spare time, he enjoys fishing, golfing and hiking with his wife Diane and Brittany Spaniel Roscoe. A cyclist, Steve has participated in the City to Shore MS 150.
