Licensed electricians for Northern Virginia's homes and businesses since 1984
Walls Electrical Service, Inc. was originally founded in 1984 by Donnie Nelson as Nelson Electrical Services. Donnie built the business on a reputation of integrity and hard work, which led to Nelson Electrical Services becoming one of top commercial electrical contractors in Northern Virginia's Washington DC metropolitan area.
Licensed Electrician: Marc Walls
In 2002, Julie Nelson, Donnie's daughter, married Marc Walls, an electrician with Primary Electric.
Marc had been working the electrical trade since 1994. His first job had been as an apprentice at Ennis Electric of Manassas, VA. From the beginning, Marc was introduced to the high-power world of commercial electrical installation. His very first project as an apprentice with Ennis was the Manpower Center at Quantico Marine Corps Base. While at Ennis, Marc learned the important lessons of maintaining a good work ethic, having discipline, and responsibility.
After completing his apprenticeship with Ennis, Marc started working as a Journeyman at Primary Electric. He continued to learn the lessons of what made a successful electrician. Two of the most important things Marc learned were the importance of delivering on promises, no matter the cost, and making deadlines, no matter what it took. Better to lose money and work overtime on a job so you can live up to your promises, than fail a customer and damage your reputation.
In 2003, shortly after marrying Julie, Marc became a partner to his father-in-law, Donnie. By that time, Donnie had been working Northern Virginia's electrical trade for almost 20 years.
Passing the Electric Torch
Donnie continued to run Nelson Electrical Services for five more years, but by 2008 he was ready to call it a day. Recognizing that the company was in good hands with Marc, Donnie took the opportunity to retire. He passed ownership of the company over to Marc and Julie, and moved to the Southern comfort of South Carolina.
Wanting to make the company their own adventure together, Marc and Julie decided to rename the company, and Walls Electrical Service, Inc. was born.
