The Founder and President of Genesis Lighting Management Services, Inc., Chris Rimbos, incorporated Genesis in 1997 in the wake of a successful tenure developing a lighting maintenance company for a large privately owned closely held corporation.

Chris has grown up in the wholesale distribution/specialty lighting business, working for his father in the warehouse sweeping the floors and stocking the shelves full of lighting supplies from the time before he could drive. Summers after driving age brought more experience and on the job training making deliveries to job sites and dealing with many different personalities. After graduating from college Chris developed a love for the lighting maintenance and service business. Several successful years of selling and leading a sales team in the commercial specialty lighting market lead to an opportunity to go in business for himself and that is exactly what Chris did in 1997.

Since the incorporation of Genesis in 1997 the company has enjoyed a steady and controlled growth pattern. As the company has grown it has added more services than those just offered as a lighting maintenance company. The company has added electrical maintenance and construction services, outdoor lighting maintenance and construction services, sign maintenance and construction services to its list of capabilities. These additions prompted the change of the company name to more adequately reflect the services provided and now the company is known simply as Genesis Electric & Lighting.
