)-- Five Star Painting is excited to announce its expansion into Columbus, Ohio with a new franchisee, Ross Gill. He will work closely with Tom Hodgson, the Chief Operating Officer of Five Star’s East Coast operations.

Graduating from the Western Reserve Academy in Hudson, Ohio, and later from Ashland University with a degree in Business Administration, Ross has a great deal of experience to lend.
