Welcome new member Zach Hulm
Adrienne McCoy introduced him on June 15. His co-sponsor is Michael Wehrenberg.
Zach was born and raised in Lebanon. He joined the Air Force Reserves after high school and was stationed at Whiteman AFB near Knob Noster, where he served as an A-10 hydraulics mechanic. While in the Reserves, he attended University of Missouri - Columbia, where he earned a degree in business marketing and psychology.
Zach felt a desire for a greater challenge to serve his country and was selected for the Marine Corps Officer Candidate Program. After completing that program, he was stationed in Camp Lejeune, N.C., and served as the 2nd Marine Logistics Group budget officer, managing operations and maintenance funding.
Zach voluntarily took a deployment to Afghanistan in 2011. He was the fiscal officer in charge of the stability operations section in Helmand Province, managing humanitarian and construction projects. He earned the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Action for his actions.
After returning home, he was assigned to Bloomington, Ind., as the Marine Corps officer selection officer. He was responsible for recruiting, screening and preparing college students and graduates for the rigors of Marine Corps Office Candidate School.
Zach still serves as a captain in the Marine Corps Reserves. He returned to Missouri in 2014 and purchased CertaPro Painters. He believes it provides the right professional environment and culture for focusing on taking pride in your work and giving back to your community. His goal is to create an extraordinarily positive experience for every employee and customer.
