The WireNut Biographies
Trent Urban grew up in both Great Bend, KS and Colorado Springs, CO. Trent helped his father in the electrical industry during summers and when time allowed. In 1997 after college and those many younger years of helping his father, Trent began his full time career in electrical at Urban Electric. After just 6 years in the industry Trent obtained a Master Electrical license and became license holder for 1 of the 2 Urban family owned businesses.
In 2001, Trent and his father Bob, came to the conclusion that there was a distinct lack in a customer focused Electrical Service company for the Residential Repair market, one which would deliver same-day service, upfront pricing, 100% Satisfaction Guarantees, and respect the home as if it were their own. These promises are all but impossible to deliver when relying on Commercial "Construction Based" Electricians.
After 3 years of laying the groundwork for this idea, Trent's brother Rob joined Bob and Trent to start the newly formed company, later to be known as "The WireNut".
Since those days, The WireNut has had the honor of being awarded the prestigious BBB Excellence in Customer Service Award, the INC 5000 listing of the fastest growing privately owned companies 2 years in a row, and becoming the "Go-To" Electrical Repair company along the Colorado Front Range- all while keeping our eyes on where we came from and what makes it all possible.

Aimee Urban, wife of Trent Urban, is the rock that Trent relies upon daily. Aimee helps on various project based roles within The WireNut periodically but focuses most of her time on keeping up with the daily activities of Trent and Aimee's 3 young men; Gavin, Alex, and Rylan, all 3 of which are very involved in their school programs, sports, and time with friends.
Bob Urban, father of Trent Urban, and former owner of both The WireNut and Urban Electric, started in the Electrical industry in the 1970's after completing his enlistment in the US Navy in electronics and instrumentation. Bob entered the Electrical Construction industry in Kansas as an apprentice and quickly worked thru the ranks ultimately to a Master Electrician and Business owner of Urban Electric. In 1986 he and his wife Rosella moved their family to Colorado where Bob re-started Urban Electric along with his brother Mark.
Bob and Rosella Urban were the original owners of The WireNut prior to Rob and Trent Urban purchasing the company in 2010.
Rosella Urban, mother of Trent Urban, is the one that makes it all possible. Without her motherly support, The WireNut and the former Urban Electric would not have been at all possible. Rosella previously filled the role of Office Manager and Bookkeeper for Urban Electric, and has fulfilled many project based roles within The WireNut.
Rob Urban, brother of Trent Urban and previous co-owner of The WireNut, left the finance industry to head up the newly formed "WireNut" in 2004. This service company operated alongside the construction company "Urban Electric" for some time. Rob spent his time building the initial foundation for The WireNut in 2004 and laying the groundwork for the incredible successes The WireNut has achieved as well as preparing for Trent to later join him full time, at which time Trent shifted his attention from operating Urban Electric to The WireNut. Rob left The WireNut in 2012 leaving full ownership to Trent Urban.
