Team

We go the extra mile to make you visible to your customers.

John McManus, President

John McManus, President, founded and built BRANDVIZION, formerly Signs Plus, on the basis of forming partnerships with customers to solve their communications problems and deliver customer satisfaction in a friendly, yet efficient way. 

Customers appreciate that John goes the extra mile to solve their problems and give a solution. Ongoing investments in next-generation technology enable BRANDVIZION to deliver excellent products at affordable prices while meeting John’s and his customers’ sustainability goals. The technology enables customers to produce more creative communications on LEED-compliant, recyclable materials. The technology cuts production times significantly and decreases waste.

A native Washingtonian, John resides in Arlington, Virginia. Before Brandvizion, John demonstrated his commitment to customer satisfaction, winning Time Magazine’s Quality Dealer Award in management for Koons Automotive Companies. 

You can find John outdoors year-round. He is an avid trail runner, golfer, and skier.

Giving back to the community is important to John. BRANDVIZION is a long-time supporter of Habitat for Humanity, Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure, and Team River Runner, healing support to our wounded warriors.

 

Don Padgett

Don Padgett, Account Executive, joined BRANDVIZION in 2006. Customers enjoy Don’s sense of humor and trust his material choices and engineering solutions. In fact, the entire team relies on Don to find creative design, production, and installation solutions to customers’ most demanding logistical challenges. Don is BRANDVIZION’s ADA and Wayfinding signs specialist.

As a former sales manager for Brown Automotive Group, Don distinguished himself with many top performer sales and service awards such as Isuzu’s Diamond Level Award, the highest dealer award for sales and service.

Beginning his career as a commercial truck driver hauling race cars to tracks all across the country, Don learned the value of on-time delivery. With a full complement of tools back at the shop, team members counted on Don to make parts and use his creativity to improve existing designs. Don brings his get-it-done attitude and think-outside-the-box mentality to BRANDVIZION customers. 

Don lives in Centreville, Virginia with his wife and daughter.
