Electrical contracting firm Rosendin, among the nation’s very largest employee-owned electrical contracting companies, is celebrating its vice president and chief accounting officer Matthew Hisaka for being named an honoree in the Silicon Valley Business Journal’s 2022 '40 Under 40' award program.
Hisaka was selected among hundreds of applications from rising leaders shaping the Bay Area for his commitment to being a positive force of change and champion of volunteerism in the construction industry and his community.
Hisaka joined Rosendin in 2011 as a financial reporting manager and was selected for Rosendin’s Leadership Academy, a two-year training program aimed at teaching vital business skills, along with confidence, and leadership training.

“Matt genuinely cares for each one of his team members and knows how to put them in positions to succeed,” said Daren Mays, vice president of finance at Rosendin. “His strong work ethic and eye for detail have made Rosendin a more efficient company, and I have no doubt Matt will someday leave his mark on the next generation of industry leaders.”

Clarkson is responsible for Rosendin’s success in a wide range of design-build projects all over the US, within commercial, transit, hospital, airports, educational, and homeland security venues. These projects involve bridges, tunnels, ports, aviation, smart highways, structured cabling, air blown fiber both micro and conventional, PON, smart buildings, and installation and integration of many systems.

The gist of Clarkson's talk was stated thusly:Stepping in to a new market can come with many questions. While the supply of the low voltage technology systems market is expected to double in 2022 in the building market alone, there is always uncertainty. This session will discuss the steps an electrical contractor should take to get in to the integration business.
