Ausherman Painting’s Newest Owner Zach Ausherman and the Challenges of Second-Generation Business | S2E8 | Pro Painter Podcast

Hosted by Nick May w/ guest Zach Ausherman

This week in the Pro Painter Podcast, Nick chats with Zach Ausherman, the new owner of Ausherman Painting in York, Pennsylvania.

Ausherman Painting was originally owned by Zach’s father. Zach himself got a degree in business and political sciences, and went on his own path. Whenever he wasn’t working in the equipment industry, he worked at Ausherman as a salesman. Eventually his father decided to retire and, after a long and arduous process, Ausherman Painting is now officially under Zach’s ownership and direction.

Zach talks about the many roadblocks of acquiring a business through succession. It’s not just about the paperwork, it’s about being the right person to keep the business on the right track – not to mention enjoying the position. Most importantly, Zach (and Nick) discuss the pros and cons of working with family members. Spoiler alert: family gets along better when they’re not working in the same company.
