Owner and CEO
Fred Graft is Owner and CEO of Worthington Energy Consultants (WEC) which he founded in 2011. Under his guidance, WEC has grown to manage over 3 billion kWh of electricity for our clients and continues to grow and expand various value-added services and products.
Fred started his business career in the cattle industry exporting heifers and bulls to many foreign countries. Fred utilized a small fleet of airplanes to fly buyers around the country to conduct business efficiently. Fred’s philosophy of honesty and character brings his ability to conduct business with a “hand shake” throughout the organization.
Prior to forming WEC, Fred was affiliated with two commercial real estate management and brokerage firms. CB Richard Ellis and Equity Inc. Fred also successfully developed a residential and commercial real estate brokerage which he sold prior to starting WEC.
Fred’s attitude that WEC can offer something to all companies, large and small, has helped WEC grown its client base throughout state agencies, fortune 500 corporations, all the way to the local pizza shop. More importantly to Fred though, are his three sons and six grandchildren. Fred resides in Worthington, Ohio.
