Meet Our Sparks Inventors: Bruce Finch

As we expand our innovation center to Sparks 2.0 we want to reintroduce the inventors we currently partner with and share more of their personal stories. This post is part of a series that not only explores our inventors and their products, but shares details about their passions outside of electricity.

Last (but definitely not least!) in our Sparks inventor series, meet Bruce Finch, an innovator on a mission to simplify electrical work. Growing up in Raleigh, North Carolina, Bruce started doing electrical work at a very young age with his father and continues to do so.

He is passionate about helping others in our field understand that good workmanship will go a long way in making their future brighter. And, just because we call it work, it doesn’t have to be hard.
