In 2018, Price Electric expanded to Central Iowa and set up shop with a new office in Des Moines. Since then, we’ve expanded our team with a Branch Manager – Jason Murray. Jason has been a friendly face for many members of the Price Electric team, and we’re excited to have him on board.
Des Moines is home to Price Electric’s newest location – what attracted you to Price Electric?
I have been dealing with Price Electric on the vendor side, since 2014. I always enjoyed working with the company, and I respected the way they operated. I also saw a strong company culture and knew it was one I wanted to someday be part of. So when they started in Des Moines, I continued to work with them, and when approached about the position, I knew it would be a great fit.
As Branch Manager, what does your day to day entail?
This is a tough one. Every day is a little different but usually consists of many of the same things. There are always the personnel issues to deal with via Bamboo, unloading, and sorting deliveries that come in, handling building-related issues, and reaching out to contacts and potential customers. I also try to visit the job sites and talk with our team. I want to be a resource for them and make sure they have what they need to do the job to our standards and to do it efficiently.
What part of your job do you enjoy the most?
I really enjoy interacting with our team, learning about them, and learning about what drives them to do their very best every day. The part I didn’t realize I would get to do as often is visiting job sites and seeing the team in their element and producing. I enjoy seeing people who are skilled and passionate about doing what they love.
What is your greatest challenge?
Overall it is building our brand to potential employees and potential customers in Central Iowa. I think we do that by each person doing their personal best every day and always striving to do our personal best. If each of us continues to do that, success will follow.
What would you like the Des Moines area to know about Price Electric?
Price Electric is here, and we’re focused on being in Des Moines for a long time. We will accomplish that by building lasting relationships, being trusted to get the job done, and doing so with some of the most innovative ideas in the industry.
