Authentic Electric began life in 1970s as All-Ways Electric. Jim Grear ran All-Ways in many shapes and sizes for over 40 years. In 2010, Nathan Miller joined forces with Jim and became the face of the shop, garnering good will and great reviews around the Portland metro area for his aptitude and ability.
Richard Gilmore and Chris von Chamier joined the All-Ways team during the 2011 business boom. In 2013, Scott Sneed entered the fold as ‘the kid’, and Ben Mendenhall as ‘the office’. 2014’s business increase required the addition of Ryan Lella, and we added Ted Parker and Geoff Wittreich to the stable in 2015.
Jim Grear retired at the beginning of 2015. Since our business has evolved from one-man shop to nine-man man team, we’ve changed our company name, as we move forward with a fresh face. Shazam!
