"Painting is the driver for our people business."

Dave Herrala – Owner/President

Born in Seattle, raised in the great Midwest, to now finding the exciting challenge of work, and passion for the outdoors on the Western Slope of Colorado. If you don’t bump into me on the mountain bike trail, or chasing a heard of elk in the fall, or the skin track into the back country in the winter, I will be busy at work leading IPS to success and at home raising my family.

"When you build good relations and do the best you can, you allow success to happen."

Mike Kumpula – Vice President/Estimator

I was born and raised in the Midwest, and moved to the mountains in search of new opportunities and challenges. Now, with Innovative Painting Systems, we are working to grow our relationships and in doing so create opportunities for our employees and our customers. When I am not working I enjoy the numerous outdoor activities this area has to offer both for my myself as well as my wife and kids.

"If you do what you are supposed to do, you stand out."

Dan Kumpula- Operations Manager

Born and raised in the Midwest, growing up in a large family we all had to develop at a young age how to work with others and take care of our own share of the workload. Lead by a Father who worked tirelessly to provide for us we learned by great example. Moving to the Mountains shortly after High School in search of new adventures, challenges and opportunities, I can now say, all have been fulfilled each and every day. I enjoy the pursuit of “Big Game” in the Fall, traveling to visit family and friends, and raising the young family that my Wife and I now have of our own.

"Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts."

Rollin Borawski- Production Manager

I’m from Greeley, CO and graduated from UNC with my business degree. In my free time I love spending time with my wife, camping, hiking, fishing, and hunting. I like working for IPS because of the great people and community we have. I always like a new challenge, so I’ve enjoyed problem solving and building relationships with the people I’ve worked for and with.


"Professional. Trustworthy. Prompt. These are the words we would use to describe Innovative Painting Systems. We have had the pleasure of working on numerous projects with Dave and the team at IPS. Throughout every stage of our projects their attention to detail and willingness to "do what it takes to get the job done" has become expected. It is a joy to work with them. In our business we don't like surprises, and neither do our clients. Simply put, with IPS there are none. It is our pleasure to highly recommend them for your next project."
