James Bowen is a Texan. He was born here and moved back to settle down and establish his career. When James didn’t live in Texas, he was being raised in Georgia, where he was introduced to the electrical contractor field. In 2001 James’ career was born when he accepted a position with an electrical contracting company in Atlanta.
After eight years of honing his skills, he made the move to San Antonio. It was around that time that James realized he wanted to turn his job into a career. He obtained his Journeyman license in 2010 to learn more about the field that held his heart. Two years later, James obtained his Master Electrician license and soon after purchased Afton Electic.
James is a down-to-earth guy and believes in the power of truth
. Never one to mislead or exaggerate, these principals shine through in his work and company. Most of his new business today is through word-of-mouth and HomeAdvisor online reviews
. Afton Electric’s customers are so happy with his work and work ethic, it’s no wonder they become customers for life. In fact, James’ very first customer has become a friend and attended his son’s first birthday party.
Outside of work, James loves to spend time with his wife and two-year-old son. His hobbies are mountain biking, bass fishing, and deer hunting. As most Texans will agree, he loves Mexican food and Johnny Cash. Give him the opportunity to vacation and he’ll head back to Helen, Georgia.
James has led Afton Electric to become known for being a reliable and responsive company. His ratings are spectacular, and he may see his vision for the company come to fruition sooner than later. James doesn’t want a huge company, but he envisions four trucks with four crews. Any bigger and he feels like the company may lose touch with the principles and customer service it was founded upon.
Hire Afton Electric once and you’ll never look for another electrical company
. You may even want to pencil in his son’s next birthday on your calendar.
