As President and one of the owners of Huston Electric, I have experienced many changes in the last 26 years. Our 4th generation family owned business has grown from an electrical contractor to a company with four divisions specializing in electrical contracting, back-up power, signage and telecommunications.  As a graduate of Purdue University, I have utilized my education in Electrical Engineering Technology to manage countless projects in Tippecanoe and surrounding counties.  I enjoy hunting, fishing & spending time with my wife of 26 years Jennifer, my sons Matt and  Mark and my daughter Megan.  I am a long standing member of the John Purdue Club and enjoy Tailgating the home Purdue games and entertaining our customers, vendors and employees.

We have many opportunities in our communities and we succeed on the verses of hard work from our staff and workforce. On a personal level, I enjoy fishing, golf, basketball, and wood working.
