When Two Paths Meet

“If you want it, you’ve got to work for it,” that was the motto passed down to Five Star Electric’s owner, Tony Brown, by both his grandfather and father, a lesson he’s carried with him from childhood on. Working with his hands whenever he could growing up, by age eighteen Tony was digging ditches, and after graduating high school he began his career in the trades.

Just as Tony was getting started in life, Five Star Electric was founded in 2002 to fill greater Ashland, Wisconsin’s need for world class electrical services. Originally started as a construction contractor, Five Star branched out into commercial installs, service, and repair, allowing the company to tackle projects of nearly any type and size.

Tony and his wife Sara were so impressed with Five Star Electric’s early moves and spectacular service they purchased the company in 2011.

Built on Repeat & Referral Business

Operating by the hard-working values instilled in Tony at an early age, the company’s been in growth mode ever since, making it a trusted partner for commercial, industrial, and residential customers.

In fact, a whopping 60% of Five Star’s business is returning customers, while the majority of the other 40% have come through referrals. THIS is what happens when mastery meets execution.

Five Star employs over ten team members today and is growing, a fact Tony is mighty proud of. “It’s not just my kids I have to be concerned with, I have to keep their kids and families constantly in mind,” he says. “We are especially proud of the family-type workspace we’ve created at Five Star Electric.”

Giving Back and Growing

As a family owned, locally operated company, Five Star Electric is proud to be an active member of the Ashland area community through charity involvement, and Tony himself is a member of multiple boards which concentrate on trade development, youth, and veteran programs.

Tony and Sara have always encouraged their children to work hard and follow their bliss, with the occasional friendly reminder, “If you want it, you’ve got to work for it.” They are now so proud that their children, Karson and Carter, are passionately carrying on Five Star Electric’s legacy.

Meet the Team

Tony Brown

Tony Brown is the co-owner of Five Star Electric. He acquired the company in 2011 in Ashland, Wisconsin where he was born and raised. He’s pushed his company to expand and grow, making it the regional Chequamegon Bay leader it is today.

Tony enjoys being with his family, teaching his son about the electrical trade, fishing, hunting, and eating good food.

Sara Brown

Sara Brown is the co-owner and president of Five Star Electric. She’s also the wife of Tony Brown! Acquiring the company with Tony in 2011, she started with little background experience in running a corporation… so she rolled her sleeves up and learned the ins and outs of the industry to build the growing business you see today.

Sara enjoys time with her dogs and family (maybe in that order 😉) . She also loves to travel!
