Personnel

This makes up the core of PVE’s essential work force:

Mark Clough entered the electrical industry at an entry level position in 1971 working after school as a young high school student and found a true interest in the electrical industry. He eventually joined the local IBEW apprenticeship program in 1980, excelling and graduating from the program with honors. He then went to work immediately as a foreman electrician and continued in that capacity until joining Pajaro Valley Electric (PVE) in 1989. His intention of purchasing the business from Ray and Carl Sahlberg, second generation proprietors of PVE, was completed in 1990.

Paul Lauesen entered the construction industry in 1970 as a laborer for a local construction company. He worked summers until he completed the construction technology program at the local junior college after which he worked full time as a construction laborer. At 24, he joined a local electrical retailer/contractor and began his career in the electrical industry. With a desire to learn, he soon became knowledgeable of the materials and mechanics involved in putting a successful project together. Later he and Mark worked for the same company and developed a respect for one another and their work ethic. Mark asked Paul to come and work with him at PVE in 1990.

Fay Hilt began her employment with PVE in 1998, and has been involved in some form of the construction industry since 1981. Fay is the backbone of our office.

We have had to deal with many differing methodologies and invoicing systems over the years, requiring flexibility and compromise in order to provide our customer with the final product that meets their needs. Fay has always been able to meet  those needs in a friendly and professional manner.
 
Randy Dike is the first employee to join PVE in the recent era (1993). Randy has traveled with us from Ukiah to the oilfields of Bakersfield. His mechanical aptitudes defy description. He is truly a magician when it come to modifying existing electrical apparatus. Randy excels in working with difficult environments, where harsh conditions challenge an electrical systems' day to day operation.

Juan Rodriguez joined PVE in 1995 and has been a key element in our work force ever since. His expertise ranges from fine custom home modifications to complex control issues. Juan has demonstrated an extremely productive nature with a keen sense of customer needs and time frames. Juan has exceptional skills with everything from layout to implementation of complex projects and has the ability to integrate conflicting systems so they work as one.

John Barber was brought onboard in 2004. With 22 years experience in the electrical industry, John is one of the most through individuals you will ever meet. He leaves no detail to chance, questions every aspect of every action and as a result has achieved an excellent record for timely completion and flawless operation of some very complex electrical schemes.

John Radich began working with PVE in the 3rd quarter of 2007, a Watsonville native with 22 years of experience in the trade. He is quick with a smile and always known to have a positive “let’s get it done” attitude. John has experience in all facets of the electrical industry from residential to industrial applications.
