Kerryn Courtis ( Managing Member )
Kerryn rejoined Paragon in 2013 having spent several years in the early 2000’s employed in the company. Her prior experience allowed Kerryn to build a broad knowledge base of all disciplines within Paragon. Her strength sees her managing the financial and admin functions, whilst also getting involved in the operations and customer liason. Having Ralph Philips, the previous owner, as her father, one could say she was brought up in the paint industry and shares the same passion Ralph does. Or though Ralph is now retired he still follows with interest Paragon’s success and is available on a consultancy basis.

Geoff Courtis
Geoff being Kerryn’s husband is very much a silent partner…(He says – “Happy wife happy life”). He does however bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in overall management and operational functions when required. He also has regular involvement with the sales and production teams to ensure our loyal customers are well cared for.
