Rob Stalvey Named to the IEC 40 Under 40

Robert H. Stalvey, Jr. (Rob) has been around electrical contracting his whole life. Rob was born in late 1976 and because Ace Electric, Inc. was the family business, it wasn’t long before he developed a fascination for construction, specifically electrical contracting.

As a young boy, he spent his summers either mowing the lawn at home or working in the warehouse at Ace. A few years later, while still primarily working in the warehouse, he would occasionally get called to assist one of the technicians on a service call. During the summers of his high school years, he worked in the field on larger commercial projects. He enrolled at Valdosta State University in 1995 and graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management in December 1999. He went to work full-time in January 2000 as Ace’s Purchasing Agent. He was promoted twice, first to an Estimator/Project Manager in 2005 then again in 2008 to the Service Manager for the Valdosta Division. By the time he was promoted to a corporate-level Vice President position in 2009, he had a vast knowledge of almost every aspect of the business. Currently, he primarily focuses on risk management and various other executive duties to support Ace’s six divisions and the low voltage sister company, Ace Technologies, LLC. He is also very active in the Valdosta/Lowndes Electrical Contractors’ Association and the peer group Ace is currently members of.

Rob is very active in the Georgia Chapter of the IEC, serving on the Board of Directors since 2011. He served a two-year term as Vice President from 2013 – 2014 and recently began his term as President. He is currently serving his second year on the Regional Nominating Committee and attends many IEC National functions such as the Legislative Fly-in, Business Summit and IEC Con.

Rob holds an Unrestricted Electrical Contractor’s License for Georgia and has held a LEED Green Associate certification for several years.

Rob and his wife Jennifer live in northeast Lowndes County on the family farm with his two daughters, Elizabeth (5) and Rilyn (1).
