We’re proud to share that Michael Parkes, COO, has been promoted to President and Chief Operating Officer of O’Connell Electric Company.

Last year Michael took on his current position as COO and was instrumental in leading O’Connell Electric through a comprehensive succession plan while ensuring the company maintained a steady course of success and continued growth.

In his new role, Michael will be tasked with more corporate responsibilities that lie outside of typical operations and project management, including continuing to develop our corporate strategy, goals, and culture. These are all important objectives that our entire leadership team is actively involved with as well.

We are confident Michael will continue to lead O’Connell Electric along a path of success and sustainable growth long into the future.

Congratulations, Michael!
