Greetings. I’m Dave Forman, the Owner of CertaPro Painters of Fairfax, Prince William, and Northern Virginia. We are a professional residential and commercial painting company based in northern Virginia. It’s our pleasure to deliver an extraordinary experience for you.
I’m a graduate of both Florida State University where I hold a BS in Biology and Florida Institute of Technology where I hold MS degrees in both Operations Research and Engineering Management. After my career as an Army officer with much relocation, my wife, Lynn, and I decided to settle down and call Virginia home. We have three children, two of whom were born in Virginia and all three of whom are graduates of Virginia Tech University. As a permanent member of the local community since 1998, I’ve been active with youth development to include coaching lacrosse at the local high schools and founding a not-for-profit youth lacrosse club. My family and I are proud Virginians.
Tangible results; that’s what I’ve always gravitated toward. I’ve always sought out endeavors with outcomes best measured in real accomplishment and transformational “Before and After” images. Whether in the defense of our Country; on the sports field; or simply building a boardwalk or deck, I’ve always enjoyed working with people and solving problems that lead to real results. And, in the process, I enjoy having a hand in solutions that make others happy. For me, results that lead someone to smile with happiness or emote a heartfelt “thank you” have always been the most rewarding.
I started our CertaPro Painting business in 2010 with the goal of delivering extraordinary experiences for our customers. It was an easy decision to make because our CertaPro business is a natural extension of who I am and what I love. Every day we get to brighten lives by transforming homes and commercial structures. And how we do that also matters. CertaPro stands for the values in which I believe: “Do what you say you will do, Be responsible, Treat people with respect, Build long-lasting relationships, Continuously improve, and Take pride in your work.” I love to see the color our team of professionals brings to other’s lives through the tangible results we deliver daily.
I’m Dan James, Operations Manager at CertaPro Painters of Fairfax and Prince William. I grew up in Delaware where I became an avid fan of Philadelphia’s sports teams. After graduating from the University of Delaware in 2007 with a BA in History and Spanish, I moved with my wife to Manassas, Virginia.
I was a High School Spanish teacher in Manassas for 3 years where I learned a lot about management. I have found that if you can manage a classroom of high schoolers you can manage anything. From there I took a position as a regional Resolution Specialist with an online school provider. In this role, I resolved customer concern escalations, customer service issues, and managed call center teams and teams of specialists at remote and local sites. Through my past experiences, I learned that both a positive work environment and an ability to demonstration confidence in your team can pay dividends toward the end result, no matter what the task.
My wife Heather and I live in Manassas with our three girls. She has been an integral part of Manassas City Schools for over 10 years. First as a classroom teacher, then a Reading Specialist and now in the Central Office. We both feel a strong sense of community and are grateful to have positions that allow us to affect change within it. We enjoy spending time with our family and watching our girls grow and learn to be strong members of the community in which we live.
I joined the CertaPro team in 2018, the day before my 34th birthday. As the Operations Manager, my goal is to ensure that our painters and craftsman are the best in the industry and to ensure that we deliver the best experience and service for all our customers. Once you have entrusted CertaPro Painters with your home or business, I will work with you and our teams to ensure that your project is completed smoothly and professionally. We strive to always deliver the results and experience that we promised.

I initially came to the east coast for a position as an Event Services Manager at a Forbes 5 star hotel in Washington, D.C. This is where I learned what 5 star and luxury customer service really means and how to make my clients visions come to life.
I have now moved to the Fredericksburg, Virginia area with my boyfriend Mike and my sweet puppy Tinley. When we have some down time, we spend our time outside letting Tinley run around or visiting family that lives on Lake Anna and going out on the boat! The rest of my family, and my other two sweet puppies (Missy & Puka) live in Nebraska, Kentucky, Florida, and Illinois and we try to get together as often as possible because family is the most important thing to us and we are very close.
