Like our clients, we call the North Shore home, so we know how to work with and within our unique communities. We keep it local, because that’s who we are as people, and who we are as a company.

We love rolling down to Deep Cove for doughnuts and some time on the water, or chilling on a patio at the Quay for a cold one after work with friends. We love to run the dogs out at Whytecliff and launch our bikes down Fromme. Most of all, we love sharing this beautiful, but tough landscape of high peaks and dense forests with our families and our North and West Vancouver neighbors. We know the North Shore and we want to get to know you too!

Cove Power Close Icon

Dave Clauson

Founder & CEO

Born and raised in Lynn Valley, Dave has always had a passion for building things. Soon after completing his electrical apprenticeship in North Vancouver, he realized he wanted to build a great company. Cove Power launched in 2009 and Dave hasn’t looked back since. He continues to take Cove Power in new directions and build quality relationships. Dave has played sports all his life and still takes beer league hockey and softball way too seriously. His wife and kids are the center of his universe, although she would probably say they’re all second to Cove Power! Dave one day hopes to live on a beach with only the ocean and horizon between him and the setting sun.

Certifications:

  • Bachelor of Arts, Psychology
  • Red Seal Electrician
  • FSR B
  • Licensed Electrical Contractor

Lyhle Coultas

Project Manager

After moving to North Vancouver from Victoria, Lyhle met Dave when they worked together as electrical apprentices. Not only were they a great team, they quickly became good friends. Lyhle joined Cove Power as a Journeyman for a few years before leaving to pursue his Project Management Certification, but is back where he belongs quarterbacking the team and driving Cove Power forward. Lyhle is a sports guy – he loves the Canucks and the Blue Jays and golfs whenever he can find time. He’s also an amazing husband and father and values his family time at the lake. Lyhle now calls Lynn Valley home, but if he could go anywhere it would be back to sunny Maui… but who wouldn’t, right?!

Certifications:

  • Red Seal Electrician
  • FSR B
  • Project Management Professional
Brad

Brad Russell

Estimator

Cove Power Close Icon

Brad Russell

Estimator

If you grew up in North or West Vancouver, there’s a good chance Brad knows you or someone in your family! He’s spent his whole life here and embodies what it means to live on the Shore. His passion is music, pretty much any genre gets his toe tapping. Pair that with gourmet food – especially if it’s off the breakfast menu – and you have one happy guy. Brad also loves hockey – the old school Bobby Orr era hockey – and reminds us all of how it used to be. Brad is about as easy-going as they come, and he and his wife are always down for an impromptu games night. If you find yourself in an epic trivia battle, you’ll definitely want Brad on your team!

Certifications:

  • Sound Engineering Diploma (CDIS)

Kelly Clauson

Office Administrator

Cove Power Close Icon

Kelly Clauson

Office Administrator

Long before Kelly had her first full day in the office she played a hand in the earliest stages of Cove Power. She was a sounding board and confidante and has influenced every major company decision since Day One. Born and raised just outside of Toronto, she’s a Maple Leafs fan who moved West after University and found her home in Deep Cove. We’re lucky to have Kelly in the office part-time as she fills her weeks being an Occupational Therapist, a dōTERRA Wellness Advocate, and an incredible mom to her 2 kids. In her down time, she loves getting out for a hike or bike on the local trails, relaxing on her mat at Maa Yoga Studio and doing little projects around the house.

Certifications:

  • Bachelor of Science
  • Master of Occupational Therapy

William Rawson

Lead Hand

Will is the longest standing member of the Cove Power team. Hailing all the way from Northern Australia, by way of Banff, Will brings a sharp mind and an experienced journeyman skill-set to the group. He has a methodical approach to problem solving and there aren’t many challenges he can’t overcome. Away from work, you’ll find him outdoors paddle boarding, snowboarding, or snowshoeing. And if he could have any super power it would be to fly – so he doesn’t have to wait in chairlift lines to get up the slopes! Will and his girlfriend have seen a lot of the world and fortunately for us they have become Permanent Residents of Canada and have firmly planted their roots in Lower Lonsdale.

Certifications:

  • Electrical Fitter Mechanic
  • Elevated Work Platforms
  • Avalanche Safe Training Level 1
Cove Power Close Icon

Philip Woodcock

Lead Hand

They say the Irish have the gift of gab, and this is definitely true of Phil! Coming to us from Dublin, Phil is our resident storyteller and he can’t help but make everyone laugh and smile. Like his favorite athlete, Muhammad Ali, Phil always has a quick one-liner or funny comment to lighten the stress of a day – if you can understand his accent, that is! Thankfully, he’s also an outstanding electrician and excels at leading his crew and training apprentices. Phil and his wife have made their home in Central Lonsdale and they enjoy hiking the local mountains, repelling the canyons, and white water rafting. The adventurer that he is – sky diving is next on his bucket list!

Certifications:

  • Fetac Level 6 Advanced Electrical Craft Trade
  • Specialized Forklift License
  • Hoist and Boom License
Carlo

Carlo Camino

Journeyman

Cove Power Close Icon

Carlo Camino

Journeyman

Don’t let Carlo’s quiet demeanor fool you, behind that calm exterior is a witty personality full of dry humor and funny sarcasm! He doesn’t stress easily, and he has the ability to intently focus on the task at hand and see it through to completion. He’s also the Cove Power Code Guru; quick to quote code rules and keep the rest of the team on track. Carlo was born in Manila, Philippines, but has spent his adult life here in North Vancouver. Long enough to remember when the Canucks were actually good (and he’s probably the biggest hockey fan that doesn’t know how to skate!). He loves to turn the music up when he’s driving so if you hear the beats coming before you see the van, that’s Carlo!
