With the impending retirement of your intrepid reporter, Shaw Electric has turned to Mr. IAS (and ISU), Josh Kruse, to lead IAS into the future. Josh is coming up on his 14th anniversary with IAS, starting with the company out of school. Having touched every aspect of our business, and excelled on jobs across the spectrum, Josh is ready, willing, and able to lead the group. Josh is an Iowa guy, who grew up on a farm in the Mt. Pleasant area. He’s known in the area for anchoring the corner on the defensive line, and playing center, for his Mt. Pleasant High School football team. Josh went to Iowa State (go Cyclones!) and received a degree in Computer Engineering. He married his high school sweetheart, Kara, and they are blessed with 3 children. Some folks may not know that Josh started in the field with Shaw Electric at the Burlington Hospital job. He traveled to Rolla, MO, to wire up the Royal Canin plant. Josh now has his professional engineering license and is one of the top electrical engineers in this region of the country. With a good group of IAS professionals ready to serve and solve, we know Josh and IAS will continue to grow and prosper.
