It is with great honor and gratitude that I am able to hold this leadership position and to continue this legacy and further expand on the solid foundation and structure that was built by my father.

Hi, I’m Grant Umeda, project manager at JD Painting & Decorating, Inc. in Oahu. I’ve been working in the painting industry for 22 years starting as a painter’s helper back in 1995 and advancing through the ranks of apprentice, journeyman, and foreman. Transitioning from the field to management was an interesting change and it offered me a chance to learn more about estimation, time and employee management, and interacting with clientele. Over the years, I have overseen a variety of projects which include architectural painting, high-performance coatings, deck coatings, waterproofing, and other specialty coatings. I enjoy new challenges and have a sense of fulfillment when I can come up with solutions to our client’s problems. During my off-time, I enjoy spending time with my loving wife and two sons, working on my truck, and if time permits, going to the beach.
Hello, my name is Sheldon Ibara and I am the Business Development Manager for JD Painting. I started my career in the painting industry in 1998, the majority of which I worked in sales and marketing for a global paint manufacturing company. As a BDM, my primary responsibility is to develop new relationships with people, while promoting JD Painting’s core philosophy on every project to Finish Well. My personal goal for every client is to become their Trusted Advisor; being someone that they can count on to understand their business portfolio and to provide whatever support I can to help facilitate their painting needs. On my days off, I enjoy going hiking, swimming and playing family board games with my wife and son.
Business Development Manager
Aloha, my name is Wayne Miyasato, estimator for JD Painting in our Honolulu office. I started with the company in June of 2001. My career in painting started back in 1976 when a friend asked me to work for him because he was starting a painting company. I started as apprentice, became a journeyman painter and eventually estimator. I have done a little of almost everything in the trade from working on repaints, new residential work, commercial projects, tenant improvement as a painter and now estimating them. With my experience in almost all types of painting I do a lot of budget pricing for projects also. Seeing a project from drawing board to reality is something that really excites me and motivates me to look forward the next project, big or small. When you can see the completion of someone else’s dream or vision be turned into reality, it’s awesome feeling to be part of it. When I’m not a work, I’m usually helping out at church, setting up for Sunday services and attending bible studies at least once a week.

When I joined JD Painting, I was deeply impressed with the quality and professionalism of the field and how everyone on the Company supports each other to get the job done in a timely and professional manner without cutting corners.
Everybody is part of a team and will do whatever it takes for the common goal.
When not working, I spend time with my wife traveling, going to events, golfing and washing clothes.
