Hunting buddies to business partners...

From humble beginnings as electrician's helpers, David East and Chris Laws shared a common dream of owning their own electrical business. After years of dedication and collaboration within the industry, they turned their vision into reality in 2019, founding Southern Lights Electrical Construction, LLC

The ladies...

Behind every successful team stands a supportive family. David's wife and Chris’ “second wife”, Blair, played an instrumental role in the company's inception, juggling responsibilities at ECU Brody School of Medicine while helping to launch and manage Southern Lights.

In 2021, Blair transitioned full-time to the family business. However, their daughter, Gentry, is the “big boss”.

This is a testament to our outstanding contributions as voted on by the community we serve.
