Chip and Tonya Balduf – Owners
Chip Balduf – Chip was pretty much “born into” the electrical contracting field. The son of a once prominent Nashville area electrical contractor, Chip began tagging along with his Dad when he was very young. He took a paying summer job at his dad’s company when he was a junior in high school and worked his way from helper to electrician in due time, working in the service department and the commercial construction department. Later, Chip filled the roles of Service Department Manager, Project Manager and eventually partner in the firm. He also taught first and second year electrical apprentices at the Associated Builders and Contractors school for two years in Nashville at the State Technical College. After his fathers death, Chip moved to NC, where he obtained his unlimited electrical contractors licenses in both North and South Carolina. He worked as licensee, Project Manager and General Manager for two other companies while there, concentrating on mostly commercial electrical work and medical electrical work. In 2012, he and Tonya came back home to Tennessee and after a while, decided to start a new company that would serve the greater Nashville area offering services to homeowners and small business owners that they felt were under served by the majority of electricians. They would offer price per job quotes instead of “guesstimates” and unmatched service and guarantees to their customers. They have built a small, but growing, loyal following of happy customers mainly by word of mouth advertising. We refer to them as our Team One cheerleaders
Tonya Robbins-Balduf – Tonya hails originally from North Carolina and is the friendly, VERY southern voice you hear when you call us. Chip says, “She is as country as turnip greens, but smart as a tack.” Tonya owned and operated an HVAC service business in North Carolina for 17 years and is the glue that holds it all together at Team One. She not only fields calls, but schedules jobs, keeps the books, pays the bills and keeps everyone that works for us looking neat and clean and in Chocolate Chip cookies. She holds a degree in computer sciences from Isothermal Tech in Spindale, North Carolina.
