Meet Scottie Broxterman, the service manager at Oak Electric.

Tell us a little about your business. – Oak Electric, Inc. is a 100% women-owned, premium contractor with a record of exemplary service. We have a fabulous team of hard-working electricians who provide quality customer service and find the best solutions to every project with creativity and experience.

How did you get started in the business? – A roommate I was living with wanted to start a handyman business. As he was looking into that, he asked me if I ever wanted to get into the trades. I had taken an electrical wiring class in high school and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was accepted into a five year apprentice program where I did electrical work during the day, and had classes at night two times a week.

What has been your most important achievement professionally? – The most important achievement professionally for me was becoming service manager.

Tell us a little about your family. – I have a wonderful wife who teaches for LPS and five children.

What is your favorite thing to do on a day off? – I enjoy spending time with my family, playing board games, and playing paintball.

What is the most unique or interesting thing about you that most people probably don’t know? – I owned and operated a paintball store and field in my hometown when I was 17.

If you could choose only one descriptive word to be remembered as, what would it be? – Helpful.

If you could have a super power, what would it be? – I would choose time travel. It would be amazing to go back in time and see the dinosaurs, watch the Empire State Building being built, or see my ancestors from long ago.

What is your greatest talent that you don’t utilize in your daily work life? – That would be humor. Humor is a great way to lighten the mood, re-enforce an idea, increase job satisfaction, and bring workers together.

Which talent would you most like to have? – I would like to have the ability to better multi focus and multi task, to keep in sight many different projects or tasks at the same time and to fluidly move from one to another (and back again) as if I’d not been away from them.

If you could choose any other profession to be successful in, what would it be? – I very much like older homes and would love to see them shine in their original glory, so I would choose historic home rehab. I would restore them as one would restore a ’57 Chevy.

What local nonprofit organization(s) are you passionate about or involved with, and are there any special reasons why? – Atlas: Lincoln is a small organization here in Lincoln that exists to serve the people of Lincoln through local, intentional, and relational Christ-based peer support.

No Footprint Too Small is a 501c3 nonprofit organization located here in Lincoln. Their mission is to provide comprehensive perinatal support to mothers, fathers, and families who are affected by pregnancy or infant loss. They are a wonderful organization that has helped many people, my wife and I included, when their baby has died.

What is your favorite movie? – My favorite movie is My Man Godfrey. It is a fantastic movie from 1936 starring William Powell and is a must see!

What is your favorite local restaurant? – The Dish.
