Vincent “Cap” Mona
Vincent “Cap” Mona is the Chairman of the Board of Mona Electric Group. Cap started the company in 1966 after graduating from his apprenticeship and has over 45 years of experience in the electrical industry. He has jump-started much of the growth and diversity that Mona Electric Group has seen over the last 44 years.
Cap has been involved with numerous industry organizations and has sat on the board of directors of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA), Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) Metro Washington and the advisory board of Washington Building Congress (WBC). He has also been a member of various other Boards including the State of Labor Relations Board, Bank of Maryland, and the University of Maryland Medical System.
Cap’s entrepreneurial spirit has led him to be involved in much more than the electrical industry and was named “Greater Washington Entrepreneur of the Year” in 1989 and “Socially Responsible Entrepreneur of the Year for the Washington Metro area” in 1993. His accomplishments have also earned him the title of “Prince Georgian of the Year” in 1991.
In addition to the above, Cap should also be commended for his involvement in the community. Cap founded Christmas in April in Prince Georges County in 1989 and was responsible for the State of Maryland adopting this charitable organization as well. To date, Price George’s County’s chapter of Christmas in April has repaired over 1,800 homes for the elderly, disabled, and disadvantaged. He is a recipient of both PG County’s Community Service Award and Volunteer of the Year award. Caps love for giving back to the community is evident through his personal efforts as well as the effort of Mona Electric Group as a whole. According to the Washington Business Journal, based on the value of Mona Electric Group’s in-kind donations in 2002, Mona tied with AOL/Time Warner as the third highest charitable contributor in the Washington Metro Area.
