B.A. Business Administration
Board of Directors
Associated of Builders and Contractors Inc.
For Paul Rowan, you could say the electrical business is “in the blood.” As the son of an electrical contractor, Paul was his father’s first field employee at age 9. Taking in field knowledge while working alongside his father, he had the opportunity to learn the trade, hands on, during his formative years.
With the vision of helping grow his father’s business, Paul earned a Bachelor’s from Whittier College in 1983. From 1983 to 1998, Paul ran branches of his father’s business in Ridgecrest, CA and Oceanside, CA. In 1998, with his dad’s blessing, Paul and his brother Mark started Rowan Incorporated.
Paul has been married to Tamala since 1986. Their son and daughter-in-law, Perris and Nicole, are parents to Paul’s grandkids. Their daughter, Sonora, has chosen to make Rowan Electric a part of her career path…as long as it doesn’t interfere with her passion for writing and performing music.
Paul is involved in and supports various organizations. Philanthropy, conservative conservation, and second amendment rights are some of the areas worthy of involvement and support. Of direct industry importance, Paul has been in leadership with the Associated Builders and Contractors. The merit shop philosophy of “open and fair competition” in the construction industry and the responsibility to offer superior training for a legacy of tradesmen in future generations compels concentrated involvement in ABC.
Integral and of higher priority than growing the business (or any other endeavor), Paul avails himself to the transcendent cause of “making disciples” for Christ. The great commission (Mathew 28:18-20) is a command, but also a reasonable response to what Jesus did for us.
In his spare time, Paul enjoys spending time with Tamala and their family, as well as hunting.
