Local Electrical Company Leader Leverages Technology to Advance Operations

CEO of the Year finalist, Seth Anderson, worked his way up at Weifield Group Contracting for more than 16 years

When he joined Weifield Group Contracting in 2002, Seth Anderson and his business partners were working out of a basement. Sixteen years later, Anderson is leading the third-largest electrical contracting company in the region. In a field that isn't exactly known for innovation, Anderson leverages technology to advance his firm's operations; Weifield, for example, was one of the first to utilize LiveCount estimating systems and Trimble robotics to unify workflow, saving time and money.

"You can't do anything without the right people – or the right relationships." Anderson says. Whether he's engaging vendors and subcontractors or collaborating with one of Weifield's 520 employees, this top-ranking officer always encourages "crucial conversations," he says, adding, " A lot of people avoid conflict, but sometimes you need it to build trusting relationships."

Anderson is thoughtful, too, about moving experienced employees – those aging out of construction – into in-house jobs  – to train the next generation of electricians.

His unique approach to relationships has gained him recognition from a variety of organizations, including the Young Presidents' Organization and the Association of General Contractors, where he serves on the board of directors.
