Arthur Kavanagh

Arthur has been a natural leader since the age of 18. During his first year of electrical construction, he was recognized by Nightingale Electrical Ltd. for his work ethic and strong communication skills. He was given the opportunity to lead a crew of electricians in the construction of a 7-story low-rise concrete building. At the completion of the project, coupled with a 4-year apprenticeship, Arthur moved away from inner city construction sensing bigger opportunities in Northern Alberta.

He got his first job in the oil sands in Fort Mackay, Alberta in 2012. With no relative industrial training, he carried his leadership and essentials skills with him. During his time up North, he held multiple management positions such as: Electrical Foreman, Electrical General Foreman, and Commissioning Lead. Within 2 years, he had overseen crews of up to 60 electricians.

Hardships of remote work aside, the funds accumulated from projects across Canada allowed him to settle back home again in Vancouver to open his own premiere electrical contracting company: Kato Electrical Inc. The foundational pillars being: highest quality contracting services and materials, superior installations and an energizing work environment.

Arthur keeps his relationships as his number one business priority because that is the key to a happy client. To him, creating beautiful spaces is about more than a neat lighting arrangement. It’s also about ensuring the client’s needs and desires are met and he’s involved in the projects from inception to close.

In his spare time, Arthur enjoys staying in shape by hiking, working out at the local gym and spends of the rest of his time socializing with his loved ones.
