FOUNDER & FAMILY

BEHIND THE CO.
For me, family is the most important investment. Family keeps you grounded, guides your way, and supports you in ways that no one else can. It’s an honor to be at the helm of the company that holds my family name, and I intend to conduct all of my business in such a way that makes everyone proud.”

THE PAYNE CO. COLLECTION

Giving keeps the Payne legacy alive. We consider the Payne Family Foundation our most important, vital venture because it allows us to serve others and impact the communities we love. Here, we give time as well as money, and we always give from the heart. We’re teaching the next generation about the power and impact of giving, so we can pay it forward for future generations.
WE RISE BY
LIFTING OTHERS.”

“We believe that giving is the Payne name’s true legacy, and we want to help as many people as we can using the resources we’ve been blessed to have. Using your last name for the greater good and impact beyond just your family – that’s a lesson our next generation is learning and will pass on someday too.”
