Mark & Denise Yates

Mark & Denise Yates

Mark Yates – Master Electrician & Co-Owner

Mark wanted to do things with electric when he was young. His grandfather was an electrician for the K & I Railroad. After turning 16, he started working with an electrician who sponsored him through the local electrical school as he was also attending University of Louisville. His experiences with old houses, troubleshooting and making old wiring work with new wiring makes Mark a local expert on working on the buildings in Louisville.  Working with various contractors and corporations gave him the experience and knowledge to go out on his own and start Yates Electric.

Denise Yates – Master Electrician & Co-Owner

Denise did not start out doing electrical work, but doing the books for Mark as she worked full time for Providian. In 1995, she decided to work for Yates Electric full time and once their youngest started school she was ready to get her hands dirty. Mark and Denise started going on jobs together so she would have a better idea of what she was always typing up and billing for the clients. In 2003, Denise received her master electrician’s license and is still one of only a handful of female electricians in Louisville.
