Robert Mott | Owner | Mott Electric



Robert founded Mott Electric in January of 1999 after working in the electrical services industry for 10 years. After graduating from college with an Associates Degree in Electrical Engineering Technology, Robert immediately went to work as an electrician. He completed his apprenticeship program and set out to learn all he could about his industry. Seeing a better way – that’s what led Robert to start his own business. “I wanted to do more than just install and repair. I wanted to create value to the services offered in our industry.”

“I’m most proud that my business has been able to provide a good home and good living for my family and the families of my employees. I’m very proud of my staff. Their dedication to the trade and the culture of excellence we’ve worked so hard to build is what has led to our success. A key to our success has been our dedication to building strong relationships and delivering tangible value to the clients we serve. We are so proud of the relationships we’ve built and our contributions to our community. Evidence of our success is visible all over our community. It’s a great feeling to drive by a project we’ve done and say proudly, ‘Hey, my team did that!’”



Kyle joined Mott Electric in 2006. He began as an electrician and project manager. Success in those roles led him to take on a role as Estimator. Today he oversees all estimation and project management for the organization. When Kyle began working for Mott Electric, he brought with him substantial knowledge of the river industry. His depth of knowledge of that unique industry is what has led Mott Electric to be a primary electric service provider to the river industry today.

“When I joined Mott Electric the question we answered a lot was ‘who are you.’? Few people knew us or what we did. We took this as a challenge to prove ourselves and our capabilities. That dedication to delivering measurable value is what has allowed us to thrive. We don’t have to answer that question as we once did. People know us and know our capabilities. People know what they get when they hire us. They trust us. We’ve earned that trust.”

Project Manager

Adam graduated from high school in spring of 2001 and started working at Mott Electric just a few months later. Adam’s father was an electrician. He still remembers the advice his father gave him when he graduated from high school: “Figure out what you love to do. You don’t have to be an electrician. Start somewhere, figure out what you like to do then do it.” Adam had worked with his father from the age of 12 and decided since it was all he knew he’d start there. He found his industry! His career started at Mott as a beginner helper. Not long after he became an individual job foreman followed by Project Foreman. Today Adam is a Project Manager for nearly all of Mott Electric’s contract work.

“When I started working at Mott Electric we were a small team of just four people. Our projects started out as small, residential projects. Today we manage large industrial multi-state projects. Robert worked hard to establish a solid business culture from the very beginning. Regardless of whether we were working for individuals and homeowners or large industrial projects, demonstrating integrity was a high priority. Our work has never been about the finished dollar, rather always about the end product and satisfied end user. Growth has not altered that integrity of workmanship. This has always been apparent from the top down, and it is something that has spread throughout the company. I never imagined I’d end up where I am today when I started here at age 18. Joining Mott Electric started as a fantastic opportunity that led to a lifelong career. The family atmosphere allowed me to grow up here. I’m looking forward to the next step of growth and leadership.”

In his role as Project Engineer, Adam assists with project design analysis and troubleshooting on the electrical engineering portions of Mott Electric’s project. He also assists with project bids.


“I always wanted to return home to Paducah and work for Mott Electric. Our team employs many talented professionals whose experience I am excited to learn from. It is exciting to solve problems, hands-on, with this team. I love seeing our work implemented in the field. I’m looking forward to expanding my knowledge of project management and completing successful projects for our clients which will, in turn, make me a better engineer.”
