Vista, CA — July, 2020 – Neal Electric, a subsidiary of Meruelo Enterprises, Inc., promoted Sam Passanisi as the new President of Neal Electric. Mr. Passanisi has served in multiple capacities for the last 16-years with the company, including Senior Project Manager, Business Development Manager, and, most recently, Vice-President of Service and Special Projects.
Mr. Passanisi brings over three decades of experience. In his previous role as Vice-President of Service and Special Projects, he spearheaded the servicing of public and private sector projects, handled complex contract negotiations, and design/build delivery. Mr. Passanisi has developed a hands-on approach and will usually be at job sites rolling up his sleeves besides his team members. He strives for excellence, quality, and above all, job safety. Mr. Passanisi stated, “I am committed to the Meruelo Family, Neal Electric, and the team I am fortunate to lead. Their safety and well-being will always be my priority, while delivering quality workmanship.”
Mr. Passanisi began his electrical industry career over 26 years ago by assisting a friend as Vice President for his electrical contracting company. While acting within that capacity, he learned the business’s ins and outs working on commercial and industrial projects. As Mr. Passanisi states, “The rest is history,” Neal Electric has been his home for the past sixteen years.
Meruelo Enterprises President Shawn Rosenberger stated, “Meruelo Enterprises, Inc.’s leadership is proud to name Mr. Passanisi as President of Neal Electric. We look forward to learning from his insight gained from his on-the-ground experience, authentic leadership, and the relationships he maintains with his team. His commitment to professional growth by adopting a team approach makes him an invaluable candidate to take Neal Electric to the next level.”
Mr. Passanisi commented on what a great advantage it is for Neal to be part of Meruelo Enterprises. One exciting example is the “Meruelo Campus” an online learning and training system rolled out in 2019. This was a great idea prior to the Covid19 pandemic. Now the ability for our team members to be able to get training and continuing education on their computers and smart phones is a life saver! We strive to establish a knowledgeable tech-savvy company committed to attracting and retaining the nation’s top talent. With the Meruelo Campus and Mr. Passanisi leading Neal Electric, the future is bright.
