About Our Founders

Sean Tobin

corkBorn and raised in County Cork, Ireland, Sean completed his secondary school education in 2000. Two days later he started his apprenticeship with Ahern Electric, where he became a qualified journeyman in just four years. He spent six years working for Ahern, and gained experience working in hospitals, schools, and industrial sites such as Pfizer Ireland and Johnson & Johnson.

After a family holiday in 2004, to visit his sister, who had moved to Vancouver 10 years prior, Sean knew he wanted to live in Canada. In 2006 he immigrated, deciding to settle in beautiful North Vancouver. Shortly after arriving he found a job with MDE Electrical, working in new high-rise developments and doing electrical maintenance at Vancouver General hospital. In order to broaden his electrical experience, Sean took an opportunity to work for Fowlstone Electric, where he gained experience working on high-end custom homes in the British Properties, Point Grey, and Bowen Island.

In his spare time, Sean enjoys taking advantage of what B.C. has to offer. You can often find him downhill mountain biking in Whistler, snowboarding on Cypress Mountain, or challenging “Natures Staircase” on the Grouse Grind. He resides in North Vancouver with his beautiful fiancé Tracey, their dogs Keely and Moose, and cat Day-Z.
