Our Story

Bill Morrison and Andy Lynch are the Founders and Principals of Academy Energy Group, an Electrical Products Distributor.  After working together at GEXPRO, formerly GE Supply, they discovered unmet needs in both the Federal and Corporate markets for Veteran Owned and Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB).  Bill had the Finance, Operations, and Management experience and background.  Andy had the Project Development, Business Development, and Technical Experience in the market. Adding Brian Schmidt, a master at execution and customer service, as an owner and partner, was the final piece of the puzzle needed to launch Academy Energy Group.

The first idea of starting this venture occurred after Andy Lynch led the Pre-Construction, Design Development, Application Engineering, Product Selection, and Submittals for a 500kW solar carport for the US Marines at Quantico, VA for a General Contractor and Electrical Engineer.  Bill and Andy saw the need, trusted each other, and founded the company. Brian Schmidt, former GEXPRO/GE Supply Sales Engineer, was asked to join as a Principal of the company and is EVP of Operations.
