Meet the Staff
Although Steve has only been with Anderson Paint since 2010, you may recognize him from his 35 years of helping customers at O’Leary Paint. Working with a large contractor base, Steve assists with commercial epoxy projects, lacquer and industrial coatings. Steve really enjoys connecting with customers throughout the day. He grew up in Ann Arbor and his hobbies include chainsaw carving, music and home improvement projects in his own house. He lives in Ann Arbor with his lovely wife Kathy and their two golden retrievers.
John Rudolph “Rudy”
Service with a smile is what customers have grown accustomed to every day from John while he works to pinpoint the perfect color or product for them. He has enjoyed finding answers to difficult questions and has helped make problems disappear for more than 25 years. John remembers one instance when he supplied paint for a customer who was covering a 150ft. building with the American flag shortly after 9/11.
John met his future wife when he began working at Anderson Paint, and they now have three children, and love spending time as a family. Frequently throughout the summer they go camping throughout the state of Michigan. Both John and Meg are dog lovers and currently have a mountain dog mix named “Boomer” “Bo” “Chocolate”. Each of the children added their two cents for naming the dog.
Phil Lotts is definitely a people person. From trouble shooting and color matching with customers at the beginning of a project, to the reward of a customer returning to say thank you, Phil finds pleasure in every aspect of his work. Once in a while an interesting project will come up, such as matching paint with the fur on a Siamese cat. Phil has enjoyed the ordinary and the extraordinary days in his more than 40 years with Anderson Paint.
Phil is married with four kids and has four grandchildren, who he loves taking care of. Phil has an eye for all types of automobiles and loves auto racing. When the weather is nice you might see him out riding his motorcycle. He is also an avid walker at Hudson Mills park and Briarwood mall. Give him a wave if you see him, but he walks so fast it could just be a blur.
