AT THE HELM

Tom Luther

I began my career with Vista in 1986 as a helper. I worked my way up over the years from helper to journeymen electrician. After proving myself in each step I was made foremen and ran many large projects. With the support of Bill Maloney our founder I began obtaining master electricians licenses. In 2011, I purchased Vista along with my partners and was named Vice President. After over three decades, I still enjoy going out in the field and interacting with clients and employees to help us grow and seek new horizons.

I am a Licensed Master Electrician I currently hold 8 masters licenses in 5 counties, 2 cities and the State of New Jersey. I also hold a New York State Fire Alarm license to install and maintain Fire Alarm Systems. Currently, I am the primary license holder for the company.

What I like best about what I do
I love to work with our customers to help them understand how to make their installation successful or solve any problems that arise that might inhibit their productivity. I like having multiple projects going at the same time and I do well when I’m under pressure. Bring it on!

Best Client Success Story
A few years back there was a client that I was told Vista would never be able to service. Building relationships with our clients is a critical factor to our success. I was able to make an inroad that led to a building renovation, wiring many machines. We were instrumental in wiring a complete facility that we successfully maintain.

My vision for the next 50 years
I would like to see Vista grow to the point of having contracts in all industrial facilities in the lower Hudson Valley. It would be exciting to see us learn and work more in the technology industries and start up a low voltage division.

When I’m not working clients with their electrical projects
I enjoy traveling, riding motorcycles, working on home projects and spending time with family and friends.

Chris Bailey

I have been with Vista since 1995, I began my career as the bookkeeper, advanced to Controller. We purchased the company in 2011, and I took on the role of Vice President of Finance and Administration. Outside of Vista I serve as treasurer for the Spring Valley Rotary, as well as Director of Youth Services for Rotary District 7210. After serving as Secretary for the Independent Electrical Contractors Association of Rockland County for two years, I’m currently serving my third term as President.

What I like best about what I do
Every day is different. We’ve all worked together for so long, it’s like family.

Our Best Client Success Story.
All of our repeat customers are a success story, and a lot of our business is from customers we’ve had for over 40 years. I love when we bring on a new client knowing that they will most likely become part of the Vista family.

My goals for the company in the next 50 years.
Vista will continue to service our customers and our community, with the same level of professionalism and talent and stay on the forefront of electrical innovations to make sure customers stay productive.

What I love to do when I’m not working with clients
When I’m not in the office or volunteering, I love spending time with my family, seeing live music, and riding my Harley.

Richard Neely

I’ve been working with clients since 1981. In 2011, I purchased the company with my partners and took over the role of President. I hold Rockland, Westchester, New Jersey and North Carolina electrical licenses. I serve on the board of the Independent Electrical Contractors of Rockland County.

What I love about what I do.
The best thing about my work is solving electrical problems – I enjoy getting creative in the electrical layouts and preventing downtimes for our customers.

Best client success story…
There are many so it’s more about establishing and maintaining customers for many, many years. I enjoy watching new clients feel good about their decision to work with us and giving them the best of our knowledge and expertise so they thrive.

When I’m not solving customers’ electrical issues or planning a project
I enjoy time with my family, exploring the area, bike riding, hiking and woodworking.

Vista knows my building. This makes managing the day-to-day and the emergencies much easier. Even through hurricanes and bad storms, they are there. Always responsive no matter when I need them. I rely on Vista – they are no slouches!
