Russell Frank (Owner)
I was born in 1962. I began working in the electrical field in 1980 after graduating from the Union County Vocational School in Scotch Plains NJ.
I attended this program on a ½ day basis during my last two years of high school 1978-1980. Starting in 1983, I began attending night classes towards completing the NJ State Electrical Apprentice program. I completed this program in 1985 and went right on to taking the New Jersey electrical contractors exam which I passed the end of that year.
In May of 1986 I created RF-Electric and began conducting business on a part time basis while working full time at the BOC Group in Murray Hill New Jersey until 1999. From that time I have been working as a full time electrical contractor and have increased my work force from only me, to include three great full time employees and a few part time workers.
Although I have spent many years working in the field, my daily activities now mostly consist of running the business and supporting my crews in the field. This allows us to work as a team and provide a higher level of service to our customers.
Mike Canas (Lead Mechanic)
This is Mike, a fantastic employee and an even more incredible friend. He was born in 1975 and graduated from Matawan High in 1993. After graduating, he worked at The Home Depot for eight years.
Early in the year 2000, he stumbled upon RF Electric and began working full time; we couldn’t be more grateful he came around when he did. Not only is Mike very well versed in electrical work, but he also has vast knowledge and experience with most other areas of home construction; his plethora of skills come in handy quite often.
After having three beautiful daughters, Mike decided his family needed a larger living space and personally rebuilt his home doubling its size. His family was very happy with the change.
Mike enjoys fishing, boating, and socializing in his free time. We at RF-Electric are very happy to have Mike as both a friend, and an employee. Hopefully your will also have the pleasure or meeting this wonderful electrician.
Kevin Mulligan (Lead Mechanic)
Kevin is an incredible asset to RF Electric and to myself, Russell Frank, as a friend. Proving himself over and over again, Kevin has consistently shown up as a dedicated employee and an astounding friend.
Kevin was born in 1988 and graduated from Arthur L Johnson High School in Clark, NJ and Union County Vocational School Electrical Apprentice Program. In 2004, while still in school, Kevin began working for us; his abilities far exceeded our expectations.
Kevin is only a spectacular electrician, but a whiz with just about any type of mechanical device you can throw at him; if he doesn’t already know how to fix it he will certainly figure it out. These skills have been extremely useful both in the field and at the shop. Kevin has a knack for hands on work; he enjoys tinkering with various projects and finding out how things work. This characteristic makes him particularly efficient in the electrical field. He has a degree in criminal justice, but as of now has decided to continue working in for us at RF Electric.
From saving lives with the Clark Rescue Squad, to off-roading and camping, Kevin keeps himself busy when he is not at work. He has personally helped me and has saved my father’s life on more than one occasion with skills he learned through EMT training; he would do the same for anyone else.
Kevin is a great employee, a good friend, and a selfless and kind individual. His work in this field speaks for itself; professional, neat, and efficient work is what Kevin does best.
