Chris Irving - Founder, Director and NZ Qualified Electrician

After working for a few larger Electrical firms in Auckland, something ignited a spark (note the electrical pun) for him to start his own Electrical business focusing on putting Customers at the front and center of the service delivery and that's where the Sunnyvale Sparky Story began.  

Chris has extensive Electrical experience over the last 14 years in both Residential and Commercial spaces.  Chris’s customer service and willingness to go above and beyond for his clients is second to none.

Chris brings his full self to the job, always relatable, professional and customer focused.  He is talented and creative as well as being technically savvy.  He always gets the job done safely, on time and on budget.

Chris is passionate about understanding his clients wants and needs to ensure he does a great job now and future proofs the clients home and/or business for any future renovations and changes instead of just ticking boxes.  

Chris gets five out of five more often than not after the end of each job.  These ratings cover his excellent Workmanship, Communication, Price and On-time Delivery.  These high scores are a testament to Chris’s great work.  With a reputation built on reliability, commitment to quality and exceptional customer service and technical expertise he continually has grown his repeat client base throughout the wider Auckland region.

Outside of the business Chris loves spending quality time with the love of his life, his wife Laura and his two smart, strong, beautiful and funny little girls Maddie and Hannah.

He is an active member of the Titirangi BNI, the Sunnyvale Primary School Board of Trustees, a Coach of his daughters Junior Football at the Oratia Soccer Club as well as Kaitiaki of the Seymour Road Pataka (community pantry) ensuring no child in our community goes hungry.  

He loves a good laugh, watching the warriors and enjoying life to the fullest.
