Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - During a meeting of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) Board of Governors on Friday, September 29, Kirk Davis, longtime President of Bob Davis Electric Co., in Shreveport, Louisiana, was elected to serve a second consecutive term as the 36th President of NECA. He will begin serving his next two-year term, commencing January 1, 2024.
Hailing from a family of electrical contractors, Davis graduated from Louisiana State University in 1975. After graduation, he entered the JATC apprenticeship and successfully completed the program in 1979. Davis worked as a journeyman for several years until assuming a management role in 1984. Upon his father’s retirement in 1990, Davis assumed the role of President of Bob Davis Electric Company Inc., a role he held until April 2019, when the duties were passed to his son Todd. Davis has served as NECA’s District 3 Vice President for the last four years.
“I am extremely honored to be given the opportunity to continue serving the electrical construction community as NECA's President. The trust and satisfaction that my peers have in me to continue representing this association, means the world to me,” Davis said. “We all share a progressive, innovative vision for our industry and I am dedicated to propelling not just our trade, but all trades forward. At the beginning of my first term, I said my goal was to understand the needs and goals of every contractor in our membership, regardless of size, location, or type of work. I'd like to think I've made headway in achieving that goal. I will be able to use the relationships I've built and strengthened over my last two years as NECA President to hit the ground running in 2024."
In his opening remarks, Davis discussed what NECA has done to prepare itself for the new electrical revolution which continues to unfold. He touched on NECA prioritizing several key aspects of this revolution, from system integration to sustainability, infrastructure to SMART energy solutions, EV, the GRID, and beyond.
