Jeremiah Owen Raises the Bar for Customer Service in Home Improvement

CEO of the Year finalist makes Vivax Pros a great place to work


Published:

In 13 years, Jeremiah Owen has built the state’s largest privately owned residential painting company with 130 employees, offices in Denver, Colorado Springs, Grand Junction and Loveland/Fort Collins and a trunkload of awards — including ones for growing like crazy and being a great place to work.

When he started Vivax in 2004, he had only one goal in mind: to raise the bar for customer service in the home improvement industry.

“Jeremiah has successfully built a company that goes above and beyond the call of duty for every single customer,” Vivax Pros Recruiting Chair Marni Caicedo says. “He built his company upon his own core values: integrity, intense work ethic, moral values, friendship, accountability, respect, striving for perfection, enthusiasm, personal and professional growth, service, community — all of these are our Vivax core values and principles that all employees proudly embody every single day. All of which were dreamt up, worked toward and achieved by Jeremiah.”

The company has created its own "Rocky Mountain Tree Festival" dedicated to planting thousands of trees along the Big Thompson River, one of the many ways Owen has found to give back.
