Board of Advisors, Director, Shareholder
Toby Thomas is a 3rd generation native to Arizona, growing up in Northwest Phoenix. Toby has been around the electrical trade his whole life and comes from a family of skilled and respected electricians. Toby's electrical experience, hard work, and determination, combined with his ability to build strong business relationships, have led Austin Electric to become Arizona's premier electrical contractor. Mr. Thomas and his partner Tonn Investments sold the Austin Companies in September 2019 to Synergos, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Asahi Kasei Homes, Japan's largest homebuilder and a major division of Asahi Kasei (AHKSY).
Toby's focus as President of Austin Electric Services is continuing to develop relationships with construction partners and homeowners by providing the highest quality work at fair pricing. Toby has assembled a very qualified team around Austin Electric, who always put customer satisfaction at the top of their list. Toby and his team's ability to adapt to market changes and implement new and innovative business procedures have allowed Austin Electric Services to remain a leading trade partner in the Arizona market. Away from Austin Electric, Toby and his family are very active in giving back to local charitable organizations. Toby enjoys spending his time golfing, skiing, and raising four active boys with his wife, Jennifer.
