Riverside Electric Inc. is an electrical contractor service company that was founded by David Forsberg in 1996.  In the fall of 2013, Forsberg contacted Andrew Willis, Director of the Kaysville Small Business Development Center (SBDC) requesting some help with his business processes and growth strategy development. Willis, along with Brent Meikle, has been working with Forsberg and his company since then. The results of the work done for Riverside Electric has been the refocusing of its business strategy, and a significant overhead reduction, while maintaining sales and customer service levels. 
 
Forsberg says, “I have worked with business consulting services over the years that charged a lot of money,  but they never delivered the value in business services that Willis and Meikle of the Kaysville SBDC have delivered.”
