Our History

Our founder, Mike McGurk, started the business when he was only 17. Between his junior and senior year of high school, Mike began working for a painting company, J. K. Trader Contracting, during the summer of 1983. By the end of the summer, Mike asked his friend and classmate, John Engblom, to partner with him and start their own painting company. John Trader also worked as a partner in the new venture for about 18 months. John Trader went on to become an Anne Arundel County Paramedic. Through the years, Bay Country Painters has become a well-known employer and service provider in the Annapolis, Anne Arundel, and other bay regions of the state.
