Sam Buckby

Managing Director and Senior Estimator

Fuelled by the realisation that running his own business would open doors, Buckby Electrical Pty Ltd Services was born in 2002 and is the brain-child of Sam Buckby, director.  Operating predominantly in Geelong and surrounding areas, he has relished the opportunity to live and work locally.

Since its conception, Buckby Electrical has grown on simple principles – look after your staff, the environment and your customers.  Sam has been fortunate enough to employ a great array of people with specialised skills covering all areas of the electrical and solar industries. With this combined leadership and enthusiasm Sam has created a highly skilled and diverse team working in an enjoyable and supportive environment.

With over 15 years of experience he has seen a thing or two and the growth of his dream has been steady, so it is set in a firm foundation and he feels very strongly about his company.  With a strong focus on sustainable design he also likes to push the limits when it comes to thinking and acting green.  Part of the Buckby philosophy is “diversity” and Sam realised that by maintaining a broad skill set for himself and his staff, Buckby Electrical could tackle any scenario his clients threw at them.  Sam is a Geelong local and is married to his beautiful wife Tenielle and together they have three children.  In his spare time Sam enjoys coaching and playing basketball at the YMCA.  He is looking forward to watching Buckby Electrical grow in the future.
