Robert A. Braaten
President & Founder of Braaten Electric, Inc.
Bob and his family have lived in Bakersfield since 1985, watching while Bakersfield grew around them, but still keeping with small town family values. Bob served 5 years in the U.S. Navy as an Aviation Electrician, and then upon returning home, Bob was employed by a reputable Electrical Contractor for 10 years, when in 1995, he was able to make Braaten Electric a reality. Bob slowly and steadily built his company to what we have today, always keeping the Customer as a priority.
