About Our Guest

Edward Waller is the VP CRM at CertaPro Painters. He oversees a marketing and a centralized customer service department, which allows him to focus on making and replicating a positive customer experience at all levels of the organization.  

Edward was part of the original equipment at CertaPro.com and has seen growth from 1 to 300+ franchises. He's been involved with all elements of the organization including the marketing of franchises, but his main interest and core skill set keeps him focused on consumer marketing. Edward left CertaPro briefly during the dot.com boom and managed to start a company, which still survives, but enjoys franchising and generating leads at CertaPro so that's where he remains.
