Tom Hutchison


I have been in the electrical field for over 30 years doing just about every kind of installation. Fresh out of high school, not sure exactly what I wanted to do, I started working as an electrical apprentice for a small electrical contractor out of Northbrook. I was able to move, with several others, to a start-up electrical contracting company where I truly grew in both my knowledge and responsibilities. It was here that I solidified this as the perfect career for me — and I quickly dove right into every challenge that came my way. I obtained my electrical license in the midst of starting a new family, which drove me to start up a business of my own. As a result of an unwavering focus on customer service and using high quality materials we can stand behind, the company steadily grew even despite the ups and downs of our economy. I have been fortunate to add Lee, my nephew, as a journeyman electrician to help grow our company into the future.

I am involved locally through the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce, became an Arlington Heights Electrical Commissioner in 2017, and Building Code Review Board Chair in 2021, and spend the rest of my time with family and friends.

Lee Weld


Lee got his start working for his dad while growing up in central Illinois as a remodeler. After moving into the area after college with his now wife and taking on some projects of his own, he realized that electrical was something he enjoyed and could make a career out of. Lee started as an apprentice with InTown in 2018 and has continued to develop his skills and knowledge every year.

Office Manager

My family is filled with music and animal lovers.  Generally, there is at least one foster puppy under our care.  We also enjoy volunteering our time for the John Hersey High School choir program, especially during the competitive ShowChoir season.  Beach trips to North Carolina, my home state, are always treasured.

While I’m new to the electrical field, I truly enjoy assisting our clients!  Daily friendly interactions, obtaining needed answers, organizing our business calendar, and trying to be as helpful as possible fill my day. Laughing and smiling are contagious and there’s nothing I enjoy more.  My hope is that all of our InTown Electric customers feel confident in knowing that their calls will always be returned in a timely manner and that their needs will be handled in an honest and professional manner.

What Others Say About Us

Tom was great to work with. He responded very promptly to my request for a proposal and had the work done a week later! This is exceptional service, especially during construction season. As a small business owner, getting someone in quickly to do my work was important, and I would highly recommend InTown Electric to anyone who needs service, whether it be repair or construction. Tom is friendly, easy to work with, and service oriented. I wished everyone I hired was like Tom!

Major kitchen renovation, we added can lighting, high tech low-voltage lighting, increased outlets. We had no ideas on where to start. Tom helped in picking out quality fixtures to compliment our new kitchen. We love our undercabinet lighting and overcabinet lighting. We entertain a lot, everyone that comes over, includes the lighting with their compliments. Tom also has done the electric for our pool, hot tub and all the exterior lighting. Tom has provided us tremendous help, great ideas to meet our budget and has not overwhelmed us with typical salesman tactics.
