Dave Young – painting since 1970
Dave Young | Owner
A Torontonian, born and bred, Dave Young has called south Etobicoke home for most of his adult life. After graduating from Ryerson University with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, Dave had a successful 25-year career in aircraft manufacturing and airline support - as an engineer, a project chief and in a number of customer services management roles. In addition, Dave has an MBA from the Edinburgh Business School. Working in aviation all those years reinforced within Dave the importance of timeliness, communications, and quality – all cornerstones of Five Star Painting.
“Owning a Five Star Painting franchise gives me the opportunity to channel that passion and use the skills I developed while working in aviation to deliver painting services with a focus on the customer experience and quality,” said Dave.
In addition to his formal education and corporate world experience, Dave is no stranger to getting his hands dirty. Growing up in a family of do-it-yourselfers, carpentry, plumbing, drywall, and especially painting are all jobs that Dave can take on with confidence.
When he’s not ensuring that Five Star Painting customers are getting top quality painting services, Dave and his family enjoy outdoor activities and the many amenities that Etobicoke and the GTA have to offer.
