Meet The Team
I figured since I was updating some bios and adding another guy, it’s time to update my own. I started KB Electric LLC 14 years ago, and we have come a long way. Over the years, I learned A LOT about…well, people more than anything, and myself. I truly understand now what it means to offer quality service, and honestly, it’s equally as simple as it is hard, if that makes sense. We live in a fast paced day and age and if you are in the service business, you have got to be on your toes, open minded, objective and diligent.
I’m excited to say we have finally found our permanent location in Limerick, PA (about 10 minutes from our Collegeville, PA location). It has always been a dream of mine to have a permanent home base. Over the years while building KB Electric LLC, I have learned that it is most important to first seek the kingdom of God, and then the rest will fall into place. I have chased worldly things for many years. Chasing the “stuff” of the world leads to a dead end, trust me. I plan to grow KB just a little bigger, maybe another technician or two, and really just keep the ball rolling. We have developed an extremely good reputation, and I intend to keep things that way.
Thanks, to all of our clients and my team.
William H. (Master Electrician, Field Supervisor)
William has been a key player at KB Electric LLC from the start. He started his electrical career in high school attending Eastern Vocational Tech in his junior and senior year. After high school, William attended the 3-year apprentice program at Eastern and was the “go-to” guy to (how do I say cheat off of on a test and not sound bad?) ask questions. Will is now a registered Master Electrician. I started Will as a helper and hammered him like a drill sergeant. He picked up on the hands-on pretty quickly, and if you’re a Seinfeld watcher, he’s a “how could anyone not like him“ kind of guy. Clients love him for his personality, work, and pricing (sometimes I still get on him for being a little too favorable with the pricing).
Over the last ten years, William has worked his way up to field supervisor. He’s there for the clients, he’s there for me (the boss), and he’s there for the team. If you are ever looking for a good laugh regardless of electrical work, email me. I’ll shoot you his cell and you’re a phone call away from smiling.
Mike AKA “pretty boy” has more to him then just good looks. Mike has developed into one heck of an installer at KB Electric LLC. He started his electrical career in high school attending eastern vocational tech in his junior and senior year. After high school, Mike attended the 3-year apprentice program at Eastern and recently graduated.
Mike started off as a helper, and like Will too, picked up very quickly on the hands-on. Over the past few years, Mike has earned his way into a van and gained the responsibility of handling projects both large and small from start to finish.
Brian was hired as a helper, AKA a gopher. “Go for some wire nuts in the back of my van.” I felt I had to update his bio, for he has come a decent ways now. I can’t say Brian is the fastest; however, he is clean, on-time, gets done what he needs to get done, and I don’t really hear much else otherwise. I have come to appreciate what he has to offer. He is a solid guy all around. Brian does partake in some antics at the shop. He thinks he is an artist of some sort. Every now and then I have to show him who is boss.
Jacob D. (Journeyman, Field Technician)
Although our Jake is no State Farm rep, he is an exceptional electrician and genuine “Allstar Citizen”. He’s the kind of guy who spends countless hours re-arranging our entire shop during a slow day; maybe he just wanted the hours. Regardless, he takes initiative. Jake is a Marine, “OOH RAH!” as they say. He completed electrical trade school in what some would call the “Dirty Jersey”. Dirty or not, they taught him well. When it comes to the hands-on aspect, Jake is a natural. He must have learned obedience when it comes to following procedures and protocol in the military. Jake could probably teach the other guys a little about that.
Sean B. (Installer)
Meet Sean. Sean has a background in roofing, siding, carpentry, masonry, hardscaping, auto mechanics, cooking, et cetera, making him an exceptional electrician. Construction comes second nature to Sean. As electricians in the residential field, you have to know your way around not just electrical work, but almost all other trades. It’s nice having someone who can offer knowledge in the other departments. His ability to solve problems has made him an asset to our company. Some people have the mind for problem solving like Sean, and some don’t. He is also a man of the Lord, and is always open to share the gospel.
Melanie was a former settlements coordinator at a law firm, inputting important information and all that “fun” stuff. Melanie graduated from West Chester University majoring in marketing. This seemed just what KB Electric LLC was looking for.
Adding Melanie to the team is just plain awesome. Melanie is responsible for invoicing, social media management, SEO, client relations, community outreach, and what ever else that involves paper work or would be considered “office” work.
