Amanda Ullrich selected for her outstanding leadership and commitment within her profession

I’m pleased to welcome Amanda into this exceptional group of professional women. Her outstanding work as Owner of Smith Painting Services Inc. and her continued pursuit of professional excellence illustrates her commitment to her field.

The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Amanda Ullrich as a 2015-2016 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in home improvement. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting more than 700,000 members and over 200 operating Local Chapters.

“I’m pleased to welcome Amanda into this exceptional group of professional women,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “Her outstanding work as Owner of Smith Painting Services Inc. and her continued pursuit of professional excellence illustrates her commitment to her chosen field.”

Ms. Ullrich became involved in commercial and residential painting in order to challenge herself. Now, despite working in a predominantly male industry, she is owner of her own union painting business, Smith Painting Services Inc. In addition to her career in painting, Ms. Ullrich obtained a Master of Science in Immunobiology from Loyola University Medical Center.

Ms. Ullrich has owned Smith Painting Services Inc. for a little over two years, and manages many of the integral parts of the business on her own. “As owner, I make all financial decisions, and am responsible for hiring, job placement, invoicing, payroll, contract negotiations and some estimating,” she says. Managing these tasks is no easy job, and she accredits much of her success to her strong organizational skills and her proficiency in systems such as Excel and Word.

Pride in her employees and a strong focus on professionalism are exceptionally important to Ms. Ullrich. Even though she finds the most challenging part of her career to be balancing employee satisfaction and efficiency, the bountiful positive feedback she receives is her motivation to keep improving.

With Smith Painting Services Inc. already covering a wide range of customer needs from commercial to residential, in the future Ms. Ullrich plans to continue to expand her customer base to include more industrial sites.

Awards & Accomplishments: Master of Science, Loyola University Medical Center
