22 years ago Gerard Farrell discovered his passion for the electrical trade. No surprise considering the family business in Dublin, Ireland.
Gerard Farrell has been working in the electrical trade for over 22 years. He first started his apprenticeship in Dublin Ireland in 1998 learning his trade from his two Uncles in a family-owned business, Alpine Electrical Engineering LLC where he built and installed custom switchgear and electrical control panels. He graduated from Kevin St technical institute and revived his national craft certificate as a qualified electrician in 2003. He was promoted to foreman in 2003 at the age of 21. In 2004 Gerard emigrated to the United States and began to work for All-Star Electrical, where he first met his now business partner, Philip Brady. In 2006 Gerard was promoted to a foreman position where he ran commercial & residential projects of all sizes. In 2009 Gerard moved to Eco Electrical where he quickly became the director of field operations. This position included being in full control of a minimum of 10 projects at a time and organizing manpower, materials, schedule & attending all weekly meetings, and always made sure all projects were done in a timely & quality assured manner. DOB inspections were always attended and passed for every project. In 2018 Gerard became a licensed NYC master electrician and partnered up with Andrew Horan & Philip Brady and started up Alba Electric. In the short time they have been in business they have been extremely successful. The company now employs over 30 men and has built up a large contact list with many different clienteles. We foresee the future to be very bright and to keep growing with every passing month.
