Steven Montgomery, the founder of That 1 Painter, discovered a passion for painting at a young age. The son of a professional painter, Steven would often help his dad with painting jobs after school and decided to continue learning long after his father retired from the business. While in college, Steven would borrow his father’s old equipment and help paint homes for his realtor mother, her colleagues, and their clients
In 2011, Steven decided to leave college and his day job to pursue his calling: entrepreneurial business. He created his company, That 1 Painter, which in the early years was him and a couple hired friends painting homes together.
Today, That 1 Painter has grown to 15 crews in Austin, recently launched a second location in San Marcos, and is now expanding nationwide under Steven’s leadership. That 1 Painter exists to help people, through stellar customer service and excellent company culture.
We work hard, we are persistent, and we don’t quit. We work toward more than excellence, we work with a greater good in mind.
As we work hard to succeed and move forward we always are thinking of how can we give back to our community and world. We believe that giving is the greatest blessing and we want to give our customers a great service, our employees a great work-life and the world all the help we can.
That 1 Painter’s Founder, Steven Montgomery, has found an immense sense of purpose through his life in ministry. A Christian who’s served in co-vocational pastoral roles for several years, Steven is especially committed to honoring his grandfather’s legacy, a missionary of 48 years who passed away in 2020.
Having refused many full- and part-time pastoral positions (“I’d rather see the money go elsewhere,” he insists), Steven is currently focused on overseeing missions of his own. Paint It Forward reflects Steven and That 1 Painter’s ultimate goal: To help fellow human beings.
