40 Under 40: Jim Waddell of Frey Electric

Jim Waddell is the marketing manager at Frey Electric.

Whether driving on the 290 or sitting at a Bills game, a lot of people have probably been seeing the Frey name more in recent years. That’s due in no small part to Waddell, who’s been working to boost the company’s profile for nearly a decade.

Waddell has overseen much of the company’s updated look. He launched the company’s social media, redid the website and managed corporate sponsorships, including one with the Bills.

That’s helped the company land high-profile jobs such as the new Bills stadium, Peace Bridge and multiple jobs at the Buffalo Niagara Airport.

Waddell also lends his marketing experience to several local agencies. He serves with Invest Buffalo Niagara, the Construction Exchange, Wings Flight of Hope and Save the Michaels of the World.
