John DePaola, Chairman & CEO
In the early 1990s, John DePaola had a decade of experience in product development at Long Fence®. It was time for a new challenge.
His new task: expanding the brand. His new product initiative? Marketing, selling, installing and servicing replacement windows.
It was a success. Under John’s leadership, Long Fence and Home® branched off of Long Fence. The company became a household name across the Mid-Atlantic for nearly every home improvement product in (and on) a home.
Today, John oversees Long Roofing® and Long Fence and Home as Chief Executive Officer.
John holds a Bachelor of Science in Engineering science from Loyola University Maryland. He also holds a Master of Business Administration from the University of Baltimore.
He enjoys exercise, an occasional round of golf and cars.
John loves spending time with his wife of over 32 years, Jill Long DePaola, and their family.
John, Jill, daughter Katie, and John Jr. are co-founders of Bo’s Effort. This advocacy organization is dedicated to increasing mental health education and guidance. Bo’s Effort honors their late son and brother, Robert W. “Bo” DePaola.
