Dennis Quebe is 32nd President of National Electrical Contractors Association

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) BETHESDA, Md., Jan. 5 -- The National Electrical Contractors Association issued the following news release: Dennis Quebe (http://www.necanet.org/about/staff-leadership/?fa=quebe) became the 32nd president of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) on Jan. 1, 2012. Quebe is Chairman and CEO of Quebe Holdings (http://chapel.com/) in Dayton, Ohio, and has more than 25 years of industry experience. He served as NECA President-elect in 2011.


Quebe assumes leadership of the association as the entire construction industry hopes to emerge from the economic recession. He has been a vocal advocate for energy-efficient technology and diversified electrical contractor operations that have helped many NECA contractors thrive during the construction downturn. McGraw-Hill Construction's Green Outlook 2011 recently reported that the value of green building starts was up 50 percent from 2008 to 2010 and represents 25 percent of all new construction activity in 2010 (http://construction.com/aboutus/2010/1112pr.asp).

"The right technology makes things possible, but the right people make it happen," Quebe said. "NECA contractors are the right choice for building owners and developers looking to save money on energy costs by upgrading their systems." Quebe speaks from experience: his company added alternative energy (http://chapel.com/market-segments/alternative-energy.html) to its service roster four years ago and today, provides feasibility services and solar farm construction throughout the U.S. and installing fiber optic SCADA systems for wind farms.

Quebe entered the electrical industry as an apprentice for a national contractor, following his four-year term of service in the U.S. Marine Corps. Quebe attended Franklin University majoring in organizational management, with an associate degree in electrical technology. He also graduated from the NECA/IBEW joint apprenticeship training and went on to become a licensed electrical contractor in 30 states.

Quebe has held positions with electrical contracting companies ranging from estimator, project manager, manager of estimating, vice president, president and regional president. He has held these positions with two of the largest privately and publicly held electrical contractors.

Quebe owns Chapel Electric (http://chapel.com/chapel-electric-co-llc.html) (founded in 1946) and Romanoff Electric (http://chapel.com/romanoff-electric-co-llc.html) (founded in 1927) and Chapel-Romanoff Technologies LLC, (CRT) (http://chapel.com/chapel-romanoff-technologies-llc-crt.html). The companies belong to Quebe Holdings, Inc. based in Dayton, Ohio; together, they provide nationwide service in electrical, lighting, power generation systems, structured cabling, security, audio/video and maintenance programs in virtually every sector of the economy. Chapel Electric has a national reputation as a premier healthcare electrical contractor and been recognized for its role in multi-trade prefabrication. Romanoff is based in Toledo, Ohio, and serves commercial and industrial markets, with a primary focus on the automotive industry. Romanoff has been a NECA contractor for over 80 years.

The newest addition to Quebe Holdings is CRT, which provides comprehensive communication, electronic safety and security, monitoring systems and consulting technologies; including IT services such as systems design and custom application development.

Prior to election as President, Quebe held numerous positions with Western Ohio Chapter, NECA (http://www.wocneca.org/), including Governor, President, Vice-President, Secretary, Chairman of the Western Ohio JATC, Health and Welfare Trustee and a member of the Labor-Management Committee.

On the national level, he is past Vice President of District 2, Chairman of the Labor Relations Task Force, and served as chairman of the Manpower Development Committee, Co-Chair of the National Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee and Co-Chairman of the Council on Industrial Relations (CIR) (http://www.thecir.org/). Quebe is also a Governor-Level member of ELECTRI International (http://www.electri.org/)Foundation, member of NECA's Political Leadership Council (http://www.necanet.org/take-action/ecpac/) and a Fellow of The Academy of Electrical Contracting (http://www.necanet.org/about/meet/academy/).

His civic involvement includes serving on the Executive Board of the Miami Valley Council Boy Scouts of America and the Legislative and Regulatory Affairs Committee for the Dayton Chamber of Commerce.

"It's important to have a positive outlook about what our industry can accomplish," Quebe said. "We can't focus on what used to be because the entire industry has changed. And we've changed, too, so we can deliver what our customers demand - namely, real energy solutions that will save them money in utility costs." Dennis Quebe is available as a media source on the electrical construction industry, solar and wind farms, fiber optics, management and labor issues, health care facilities, prefabrication, and information technology.
