Beginning his career in 1994, as a paint delivery driver, just out of college, Jeff has held nearly every operational position that can be held in a career in the paint industry. His experience riding the growth of Color Wheel Paint through the first 12 years of his career and then holding various national positions following the Color Wheel acquisition by Comex in 2006, gave Jeff a unique opportunity to learn the Florida market in deth alongside a national perspective and even international experience with Comex.
Jeff's understanding of moving a gallon of paint from raw material to finished project allows him to appreciate and continually improve the experience of Florida Paints' customers. Though mainly operating behind the scenes, Jeff relishes the opportunity to build the Florida Paints' team and receive feedback from current as well as prospective customers.
Jeff has been married for 23 years and has two daughters, ages 21 and 19, as well as, a 16 year-old son. His daughters are currently attending the University of Florida, whild is son is a high-school Junior (making his car insurance bill brutal). The family is complete with two cats and a 100 pound yellow lab named Blazer.
Almost no one pronounces his last night correctly, the first time. Often inserting extra T's or K's ( think Wayne Gretzky). Jeff's father, having been a career college professor, always introduced himself saying: "Dr. Grasty, rhymes with nastly." People never mispronounced it after that!
