Meet Nathan Kuennen, one of Price Electric’s People You Can Rely On. Nathan is a Price Electric large project foreman and has been with Price Electric for fifteen years. One of his proudest moments came during the aftermath of the derecho storm that damaged Cedar Rapids when an employee from Weitz Construction told him, “Thank you for what you and your company are doing for us.” Nathan identifies and lives all of the Price Electric Core Values so much that he couldn’t pick just one favorite. The Price Electric Core Values are to Pursue Lasting Relationships, Rely on Us, Innovative Thinking, Create Opportunities for Success and Employees Work Hard and Play Hard.
