Dani NicholsTo start the year off on a high note, NAPCO has named Dani Nichols as our new President. Nichols has been with the company for more than twenty years, most recently in the capacity of Vice President. Late last year, we unveiled our new branding and complete e-commerce website overhaul, and Nichols’ appointment only adds to the exciting developments taking place here at NAPCO.

Nichols’ leadership at NAPCO has been essential over the years, as she expertly managed a wide host of projects and departments. Nichols attributes her success at NAPCO to Steve Coven, NAPCO’s owner and former President. She stated, “I owe my career at NAPCO to Steve Coven, NAPCO’s visionary who saw potential in me that I didn’t even see in myself.” Coven will remain the company’s CEO and plans to dedicate his expertise and passion to innovating new refinishing technologies for the company.

“I am so proud of Dani and how far she has come,” commented Coven. “There is no one I would trust more to take over the role of President. With Dani managing the operations side of business, I can get back to doing what I love most; creating new refinishing products to help further the industry and our clients.”

On her new appointment, Nichols said, “I am so grateful for the whole team here, because without them I would not be NAPCO’s President. They really are NAPCO. I am honored to be able to coach and mentor this team.” She is eager and enthusiastic to implement her ideas and expertise as our President, and remains dedicated to her team.

“I’ve made a lot of mistakes along the way and learned a lot, and I’ve come to realize that the whole team at NAPCO, and the work they do, are my proudest accomplishments,” expressed Nichols. “Helping others discover their best possible selves is the reason I show up every day. This purpose is my north star.”
