Title: President

How long has your company been a member of the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Regional Chamber?

Since 1991!

What is a typical day like for you?

A typical day for me is full of surprises. I may arrive at work with a specific list of tasks to complete during the day, however, soon after arriving, any number of things can jump in the way and my day is completely re-directed. We are a service-oriented business, so if one of our existing customers, or even a new customer, have an urgent need, we/I take care of them.

That being said, my days are filled with going through the mail, reading/responding to email, executing contracts, going over proposals and working with my team of Estimators/Project Managers to be sure we are quoting projects as accurately as possible and projects are receiving the attention they need, and many other things.

What do you enjoy most about the A2Y Chamber?

Bringing business together for the good of our business and personal communities

What’s your favorite tip for someone in your industry?

The high cost of safety. All aspects of construction have a certain level of danger, however, being an electrical contractor adds another level to deal with and we take this very seriously.

What is a surprising fact about your business?

The danger that it is!
