Eric Derus

Project Manager

Eric joined the Roell Painting team in 2022 after 13 years at Sherwin Williams. Having spent the last 6 years of his tenure there as a store manager, Eric brings a wealth of coating knowledge to his role as an account executive. Eric consistently oversaw double digit growth at each of the stores and among the company leaders in the acquisition of new contractor accounts.

A graduate of St. Michael-Albertville High School Eric ran cross country/track, and wrestled which bodes well for the endurance required to be a painting contractor in the summer months of Minnesota.  When Eric isn’t extolling the virtues of waterborne alkyds or talking clients through the finer points of their painting project, he willingly engages in the misery of Minnesota sports fandom – most notably the Vikings, Timberwolves, and Gophers. Upon discovery of his passion for these teams, we could draw no other conclusion that after perennial disappointment, Eric is undoubtedly an eternal optimist – another rare quality within the contractor ranks!
