Our Team

Experienced leaders and business owners Mike Horsburgh and Paul O’Donnell head the team of qualified electricians and apprentices. Both Mike and Paul are well qualified, having completed and passed Electrical Engineering Level 4). In most cases, both Paul and Mike will personally communicate with customers before electricians are sent to a job so that the task is clearly understood and the customer’s needs are properly met.

Mike and Paul enjoy taking on challenges, finding solutions and making things work. When they see customers delighted that Switched On Electrical has solved a problem that no one else has been able to fix, it makes their day.

The leadership team has an exceptional history of working well together. Paul and Mike started school together. They both enjoy golf, fishing and family time. They understand what it is like for people with young families. Paul and his partner have three children and Mike and his partner have one child.

The team values shared by Mike and Paul influence the strong team ethic of every staff member. The electricians all draw on each other’s experience and knowledge to come up with clued-up electrical solutions.

Switched On Electrical has a policy of engaging apprentices (up to six at any one time) to ensure the continuity of good practice in the profession. Apprentices are trained and supervised by those with experience and are expected to deliver the same high standard of work as their mentors. It is a source of pride when our apprentices gain their registration through their work with Switched On Electrical.
