Nathan HarrellGeneral Manager
Jumping into everything from party planning to working closely with our largest customers, this man can – and does – handle it all. With an electrical career spanning close to two decades, he has been involved in a variety of industries and his knowledge in the field is continuously impressive. To understand the man he is, all you need to know is that he began his electrical career in 2004 in New Orleans, LA. In 2005, he was part of the team to help rebuild in the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. From there, he went on to grow his skill set in commercial and industrial electrical services specializing in a variety of industries over the next several years. Nathan joined Lightning Mobile in 2014 and has helped us grow our electrical service and maintenance departments as he intimately understands the electrical needs of businesses to ensure continued optimum performance. In January, Nathan was promoted to the position of General Manager and we are excited to see where he takes us. From electrician to General Manager, he has been an integral part of our growing team. If Nathan isn’t coordinating something for the office, you will find him submersed in nature with his family.
Mark BiresService Manager
When a man like Mark joins your team, it’s impossible not to notice the growth and efficiency that he brings to the table. Mark joined the team in 2018 as a lighting tech on LED upgrades and retrofit projects. He quickly demonstrated his skills in both electrical knowledge and leadership and was promoted to crew lead. After the exceptional completion of many of our largest projects, he was offered the position of Service Manager in January 2020 and has continued to provide optimal service to our customers and our team. This is the culmination of over a decade of electrical experience and we couldn’t be more excited to have Mark on the team. If he’s not on the phone with one of the techs or our customers, you can find Mark knees-deep in a project at home or for his family and friends.
Aaron TateProject Manager
Aaron Tate is a skilled Project Manager with over a decade of experience leading successful, cohesive teams. While he is definitely the company jokester, Aaron is a man who gets things done. He has managed 100+ projects, with some budgeted in the millions. His attention to detail and customer compassion is what sets him apart from the pack. He has been integral in developing our lighting maintenance program at Lightning Mobile Electric and we are so lucky to have him. When he’s not at the office, you can catch him at Jackson Lake wakeboarding and listening to some sweet tunes.
Matt BiresMarketing Director & Assistant Project Manager
As a prior US Airman with a very imaginative mind, Matt brings a new perspective to every project he is a part of. Matt joined the team summer of 2021 as an office intern, after serving a short tour in Anchorage, Alaska as an Avionics Journeyman. His slightly different background in electrical services brings a new approach to the outlook of our industry and gives an interesting glance to the future of how it will grow. Matt thinks above marketing and takes a creative approach to even the most minute of task to make the Lightning Mobile Electric more efficient. Outside of work enduro-riding and motocross are about the only things Matt gets out of the house to do.
Robert Van GorderBusiness Development
Robert Van Gorder is a man who understands the importance of the small stuff while maintaining a big-picture mentality. As our Business Development Manager, Rob is active in the field seeking out companies who require updated electrical systems to maintain the needs of their growing business or want to provide a better, safer environment for both customers and staff. He joined the team with extensive knowledge in sales, operations, and account management from his experience within the oil and gas, healthcare, and travel industries. With a smile and, often a joke, Rob not only leads the development of our portfolio of clients, but he ensures their needs are heard and satisfied. If Rob isn’t by his phone or on the road for Lightning Mobile Electric, he’s hitting the Colorado trails in his beefy, beautiful Jeep Grand Cherokee.
There is no one else in this world quite like Nancy Benton. As the longest-tenured employee and the backbone of Lightning Mobile Electric, Nancy has a hyper-focus when it comes to getting the job done. She understands the nature of running the books and maintaining the flow of business as she came to us after the sale of her own company. Nancy is responsible for ensuring accuracy and timeliness with our transactions, employee payroll and so much more. She is both generous and compassionate and has a beautiful, ample family and two spoiled dogs to prove it. If she isn’t at the office, she is probably working from home, but she should be at a spa!
