- Griffin Brothers Companies, Viva Electric
Jimmy Giler, co-owner and founder of Viva Electric, had been working with his father-in-law as a local electrician and eventually became interested in more than just working with his hands. In 2017, Jimmy and his wife Maegan decided it was time for them to go out on their own and open what would soon be Charlotte’s top-rated electrical company, Viva Electric.
In April of 2018, Jimmy hired his first employees and things were going great. One day, Meagan called Jimmy and said a guy googled Viva Electric and had questions about a job he had previously done for another company. This guy was Austin Helms, owner and founder of Ease Plumbing and Air.
Over lunch, Austin and Jimmy talked about business and the ZoomUp Investments group. They discussed how Griffin Brother Companies created ZoomUp investments to share their knowledge and passion for entrepreneurship with like-minded business owners while providing them with additional resources, technologies and capabilities to grow local family businesses into long lasting legacies.
From there, the relationship blossomed. After discussing the opportunity with Maegan, Jimmy met Mike for lunch at Taco Mac. Mike told him, “You guys are gonna get where you wanna get, and you will be successful. But I will get you there faster.”
It was then that Jimmy and Maegan decided to partner with Griffin Brothers Companies, and ever since then they have seen tremendous growth.
Since its inception in 2017, Viva Electric has implemented new field management technology to improve the customer experience and reporting aspects. WIth a commitment to creating a long-lasting legacy and putting the needs of the customer first, it’s no wonder that Viva Electric is Charlotte’s top-rated electrical company.
Viva Electric’s services now reach out to the Lake Norman area, and with the Neighborhood Market Leader program, they’re expected to continue expanding and lighting up the lives of everyone around them.
