Corey Garrison, Founder and CEO
Corey has always been drawn towards electronics. As a child, he would take apart everything from the family phone to dad’s alarm clock, just to see how they worked. This is quite common, but what isn’t, is the fact that he could put them all back together in working order. He began his electrical career in a 2-year electronic/electrical vocational school in 1995. After graduating he answered his country’s call by joining the United States Air Force. He spent the next few years increasing his electrical knowledge becoming first an Electrical and Environmental Journeyman, and then after 3 years of on-the-job training, he was awarded the rating of “Craftsman.” He spent the remainder of his US Air Force service troubleshooting problems and repairing them on multiple aircraft, primarily the F-16 fighting Falcon. Assessing problems and performing repairs to strict military standards played right into Corey’s penchant for perfection. As Corey puts it “when you have a pilot’s life in your hands, not to mention several million dollars of our nation’s military hardware, you grow up fast, there’s simply no room for error!” After serving the Air Force for 10 years, he decided it was time to serve in a different way. Fueled by his dedication to excellence and powered by years of acquiring electronics expertise, Corey changed careers in 2007. He founded SouthFace Solar Electric, bringing “aeronautical quality” to the southwest’s solar electric industry.
