The Electroimpact Story

Started in 1993 with an SBA Loan.  Twenty-four years later Electroimpact is thriving in Mukilteo with almost 600 employees.  I manage a city within a city with an operating budget seven times bigger than Mukilteo's City Budget.  I have proven experience and the best person for the job!
