Evan Ellithorpe – President

evanEvan’s painting career started in high school where he enrolled in a vocational program in 1972. He graduated in 1974 and immediately joined the painters union where he was a member until 1984 and started The Young Professionals.

Evan felt that the caliber of work he was requested to perform by his employers was not all that it could be, and decided, with the support of his wife, to start The Young Professionals, Inc.

Evan Ellithorpe has lived in San Jose, California, his entire life. He is raising his 3 children just 3 blocks away from his childhood home. He has been married to Kristine Ellithorpe for over 29 years. His children are now attending the same schools that he attended as a child.
