RKO Marine Electric owner
Rick Olson officially started his company RKO Marine Electric in the spring of 1996. Before the
Marine industry he worked as a Service Manager in the Electrical Department of a major Motor
Home manufacturer in Oregon and oversaw a team of 15 electricians. With his team Rick went
on tours across the country to Motor Home shows and resolved electrical issues on motor homes.
In 1987 Rick moved to South Florida and transferred his experience as an electrician and
supervisor to the Marine industry. He worked for Bishop Marine for approximately 10 years and
once he became acquainted with the industry he took a leap of faith and opened his own
company. His first projects included working on power cables, AC and DC systems, Power
Management, and Refits. Rick has established his company as a reliable source that provides
knowledge and solutions to the Mega Yachting industry.
