John Abele

Director of Operations

As Director of Operations, John has responsibility for all Rex Moore electrical contractor operations in all regions. It's a job that requires his in-depth electrical contracting experience and strong leadership skills, all the while never losing sight of the big picture.

John was selected to open Rex Moore's first branch office in Fresno California in 1991. Under John's stewardship, the branch quickly grew into one of the largest electrical contractors in the Central Valley. Rex Moore's core values of quality work and client satisfaction served to create a solid platform for the growth of the Central Valley Office, an office that serves clients in Central California and along the coast from Paso Robles to Santa Barbara. Today John oversees all Rex Moore activities in the Central Valley and San Francisco Bay Area regions.

John started his career as an apprentice electrician, continued as a journeyman and foreman in Illinois prior to becoming a project manager and later branch manager for a mid-west electrical contractor in Phoenix, Arizona. Along the way, John taught WECA, ABC and IBEW apprenticeship schools in Illinois and California. He also completed construction classes at Bradley University and UC Davis Construction Management program.

What most folks don't know about John is that he is a leading electrical expert when it comes to high-level complex projects, such as hospitals, nuclear medicine, instrumentation, food processing and medium voltage substations, to name a few. John currently holds licenses as an OSHPD Hospital Inspector, International Code Council Commercial Electrical Inspector, Green Building LEED AP B/C & D accreditation, California Master Electrician License and Bureau of Security ACE Consultant.

John feels that it's important to give back to the community, supporting Make-A-Wish Central Valley, serving as a Past Board Member of Fresno Zoo Society, Central Valley Blood Bank, and Habitat for Humanity, and as a class member of Leadership Fresno Class 17.

Life away from work is typically spent at the local gym. For fun when the season is right, you can count on John to be Dorado fishing in Mexico or Salmon fishing in Alaska and Canada.
