Seth Anderson  
CEO, Weifield Electrical Contracting 
Centennial 

Seth Anderson started Weifield in 2002 with three other owners during a downturned economy — in the basement of a partner’s home. Today Weifield is the third-largest of the top 11 electrical contractors in the region, with annual revenues exceeding $158 million — and climbing. 

Karla Nugent, Weifield’s chief business development officer, credits the 48-year-old Anderson with keeping the company, now 580 employees strong, on the cutting edge of the industry. 

“We were one of the first to utilize LiveCount estimating systems, Trimble robotic stations, and other technologies – which really unified our workflow, from preconstruction to operations to prefabrication,” she says. “We were also the first to invest in our own virtual modeling company, which does work for ourselves and other companies. He really pushed to make Weifield more innovative – and others followed.” 

The company’s innovative thinking is also apparent in its formation of the Weifield Council, a cross-functional group that advances Weifield’s corporate initiatives and resolves issues – as well as Weifield’s Up-and-Coming Leaders (WULF) group, which grows promising young apprentices into leaders in the field.
