This is the highest honor that can be earned in NECA.
The Academy was established in 1968 for the purpose of honoring outstanding leaders in the electrical contracting field, and to preserve and utilize, the wealth of experience and abilities that these leaders have developed through their years of dedicated effort.
Mr. Mills was one of only thirteen industry leaders selected for induction this year from across the country. He was presented with the award on October 8 in a special ceremony in Boston at NECA’s annual convention and trade show.
“Receiving this honor from NECA is extremely gratifying for me,” said Mills. “My father, John Mills, acquired this company in 1978, and he taught me and everyone at John Mills Electric that success starts with honesty, integrity and professionalism. I have tried to live these values, and instill the same values in our employees. I see this award as a testament to my father and to the wonderful people here at our company.”
