A Family Business

After completing an assignment in the Peace Corps, John Neill started his career teaching English as a second language. He intended to make it his life’s work, completing his doctoral work minus the thesis.

He started his painting business to supplement the needs of his growing family of four. As he began, he set his intention to become the best painting company in the Philadelphia area, known for superb craftsmanship and preparation in interior and exterior painting.

As the company grew, he added specialty finishes and a full carpentry division, while continuing to use highest quality paints and cutting-edge design consultations.

Currently, John Neill Painting & Decorating is in its fourth decade and employs multi-generational painters who are considered the best in the business.

John shares the leadership of the company with his daughter Suhaiba Neill, his son, David Neill and Patrick Cummins.
