Scott Mamola: A Spark of Interest
“In every situation I encounter, I always try to do the right thing.”

LIVERMORE – Scott Mamola may have begun his professional life as a construction hand, but it wasn’t long before a related trade sparked his interest. “After working for a while as a laborer, I started to notice the electricians on the jobsites,” he recounts. “They didn’t look quite as beat up as us laborers, and their work seemed a little more technical. Plus, from what I gathered, they made better money. All things considered, I decided it would be a good trade to get involved in.” After earning his electrical certification in trade school, Scott gained industry experience working for a couple of electrical contractors before obtaining his contractor’s license and starting his own business.

Today, as owner of Maine Electric, Inc., Scott says his favorite part of his job is cultivating his team. “I enjoy introducing new employees to our culture, watching them grow and seeing the successes they get in our company. It always makes me happy when a recently hired employee reports back to me that they feel at home here.”

Born in San Jose, Scott resides today in Tracy with his wife and three children. When asked what he enjoys about living and working in the Bay Area, he cites the abundance of professional opportunity. “I appreciate the fact that there’s a lot of opportunity in our field. Even though the economy can be up and down at times, there are always people willing to pay for great service, which has kept us in business all these years.”

Outside of work, Scott likes spending as much time as possible outdoors. “I’m not one for sitting around the house, so I like to get away on the weekends,” he says. “Our family does a lot of boating at local lakes, and in the summer we usually rent a houseboat or stay at a cabin. I’m also a diehard water fowler and enjoy going hunting with my sons.” Additionally, Scott enjoys attending his children’s sporting events. “My daughter is involved in competitive cheerleading, and both of my sons are into sports like basketball, football, and wrestling.”

In his life and career, Scott espouses the importance of having good intentions. “In every situation I encounter, I always try to do the right thing,” he explains. “Even if what I thought was a good decision ends up being a bad one, I know at least I had the right intention, and that goes a long way in life and business.”

When asked the first thing he’d do if he were to retire tomorrow, Scott says he’d acquire a more itinerant mode of living. “I would like to stay in a different climate every three months and constantly change up my scenery, as well as expose my kids to new places and points of interest. What can I say…I guess I just have a hard time sitting still!”
