Our Founder’s Story
Back in 2013, our founder, Chris O’Brien set out to create an electrical business that he was genuinely passionate about. One that embodied the same values of craftsmanship and quality that were inherent in the single malt whisky industry he was finely attuned with. And one where he could control the quality and outcomes for every single client. With his pioneering mind, audacious spirit, and true determination, Leolec Electrical was formed.
Chris discovered his passion for electrical work as a young man building caravans. He was inspired by the local electrician who came and wired the caravans. For Chris, it seemed a bit like magic really – seeing how the significant ‘behind the scenes’ craft (“the stuff you don’t see”) brought the caravans to life with light and sound. He witnessed how technical it all really was and how the work could change a space entirely, enhancing living and well-being. Without this, the caravans were simply a box where no one would want to spend time. This was also where Chris understood the value of integrity, realising that no one really sees behind the wall except for the electrician. “It was up to you to hold yourself accountable” and Chris was passionate about delivering the highest quality.
During his career, Chris was fortunate to have been involved in rewiring and fitting out iconic Brisbane historic landmark properties including Boggo Road Goal, the Commissariat Stores Building, Customs House, the Queensland Parliament Building, and the General Post Office. These projects required great care and skill to ensure the integrity and beauty of these historical buildings were maintained. It was where he was able to hone his skills, especially in finding innovative solutions and concealing the work for a flawless finish – ensuring his work “fell into the background”. His depth of understanding of the challenges and legalities of working with electrical wiring and interior/exterior lighting for heritage-listed buildings means that he remains a preferred electrician for many historic Queenslander home renovations.
Chris has also been involved in large multinational oil and gas electrical fit-out and maintenance projects in Australia and abroad as well as numerous high-rise fit-outs, the Tennyson Tennis Centre, and a new science centre for a prominent northside private school. These projects were significant and diverse and required incredible safety and quality standards. With critical time and budget constraints, these projects gave Chris strong experience in project management. Today he brings this large project expertise to small-scale residential, commercial, and industrial projects, which means all electrical work is completed safely, on time, and on budget.
Stepping into project estimation, Chris enjoyed working with clients face to face to come up with the best solution – achieving the triangle of quality, intelligent, and beautiful spaces. It’s why his team is so driven to listen, understand, and deliver to the needs of each customer – having conversations and understanding the vision.
Today things have become much more technical and specifications have become more rigid. In addition to religiously understanding and sticking to industry regulations, and providing clarity around these to clients, Chris is passionate about where technology is heading, and what it allows us to achieve in our homes and businesses. He is a stickler for quality (also revealed in his passion for fine single malt scotch whiskey). This focus on quality and innovation leads Chris to undertake significant personal research and development of new products in the market. Being able to provide customers with unbiased advice and clarity about the industry and the products is an essential component of the business.
Chris is committed to helping your home or business space work for you, and continue to work well. Electricity fuels our lives – our quality of life, and our businesses. Chris and his team believe that creating and maintaining a beautiful, functional, and safe space with high-quality electrical services should be easy, enjoyable, and cost-effective.
