Our History

The Kunst name is synonymous with painting in Marin County.

Community

Community is more than just a word at Bob Kunst Painting, Inc. To help their neighbors and customers, Bob Kunst Painting contributes countless hours, labor and financial assistance to a variety of local entities.  John, Mike, and Tom serve on non-profit boards such as The Down Syndrome Association North Bay, Miracle League North Bay, Bombers Baseball, and Una-Vida.  From the beginning, Bob Kunst held himself and other local business leaders to high standards by serving as President of the Marin Builders Association (MBA) and Painting and Decoration Contractors of America (PDCA). Like Bob, Grandson-John Busick is following in his footsteps, serving as President of Marin Builders Association and sits on the National Board for PDCA.

Meet The Team

John Busick

John Busick is the 3rd generation owner of Bob Kunst Painting. His grandfather Bob Kunst (John’s mother’s father) founded the company in 1958. John grew up in the family business, painting during the summer months while finishing college. In 2008, he joined the family business full-time.

Today, John oversees all facets of the company and is thrilled to be able to offer real, growing, career oriented-opportunities to his BKP team. John also loves being involved in the community where he donates his time and resources as a Down Syndrome Association North Bay Board Member, a Miracle League North Bay Founder, and gives back to the painting industry through the PDCA National organization. 

When he is away from the office, John spends time with his family, coaches his kid’s sports teams, enjoys many outdoor activities and competes in ultra marathon races. Like his father (Mike) and grandfather (Bob), John has a passion for people, and intends to continue the legacy of service, integrity, and value for decades to come.
