Back in February 1992 at the age of 21 when I founded David Pearce Electrical I had two very simple business strategies. The first was to trade in a respectful, professional and courteous manner to develop long-standing repeat business relationships with my customer base. The second was to appreciate and value all customers equally, after all today’s small domestic job could be the facilitator of tomorrow's hundred-thousand-pound contract.
Today, I have a team to help me look after the needs of our ever-expanding client base and these simple business strategies are very much the ethos of David Pearce (Electrical Contractors) Ltd. Under my management and direction everyone is focused on striving to deliver these simple but core values. Many of my workforce and administration team have worked for me for the majority of their working lives and I am very proud of them all.
In 1992, following the completion of a City & Guilds Apprenticeship and the gaining of valuable experience with a well-established and respected electrical contractor, I left the security of employment, sold my car, purchased a second-hand Fiesta Van and David Pearce Electrical was born!
I am a family man with a wonderful and supportive wife. Our two children ensure time out of the business is fully utilised. I have a keen interest in many sports including tennis, squash, rugby union and motorsports, to name but a few of those which I indulge in whenever possible.

Scott Hudson joined David Pearce Electrical as an apprentice electrician back in 2006. His hunger for career development and progression within the company soon became apparent. After becoming qualified he furthered his studies to achieve ‘Approved Electrician’ status in 2016. Now with several years of essential experience, Scott made a strategic career path change and moved from an installation role into contract administration. As a contracts supervisor Scott was now responsible for the commercial and logistical requirements of projects. Scott has now progressed further into a more senior, company-wide, sales managerial role. His previous focus on the design and delivery of highly efficient LED lighting systems for clients has been retained but he is now also prolific in the company’s EV division ‘David Peace Electric Vehicle Charging’. In his personal life, Scott is active at various sports and enjoys spending time with his friends and family.

Upon client instruction, Lee then works with the DPE contract team helping to ensure the works are delivered on time, on budget and to the exacting high standards David Pearce Electrical has become renowned for. Outside of David Pearce Electrical Lee is a family man and keen amateur astronomer.
