our team

meet the EnergyLink team

Our team combines creative, technical and strategic backgrounds, but we have one thing in common; we're all passionate about customer service, energy efficiency, and utility savings.

Chris Ihler

co-founder / CEO

Chris coordinates Business Development, Concept Design, he is our financial strategist and is our general motivational leader. One year after the company's launch he assumed the role of Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). Chris does his best thinking while working out every day at the gym that shares our office complex and executes most effectively on stress, protein shakes and energy drinks.

Scott Schnelle

co-founder / ceo

Scott helps to guide the sales development and customer service processes. Scott directs sales in both residential and commercial departments and has developed the vision for our clean tech software product and energy audit phone app. Scott survives on coffee and the local college all-you-can-eat buffet. He is our resident devil’s advocate and foodie. Scott still oversees the landscape lighting business he started after college. He has a collection of unique instruments including a concertina and a jaw harp.

Justin Wiles

Lead Auditor

Justin heads up our auditing program and performs research and development on new industry ideas. He is our resident tree hugger (truly, he has a B.S. in Forestry) and bikes to work daily. Justin knows the scientific name of every tree, shrub and flower species in North America – feel free to quiz him.

Andrew (or as we know him) "Bueler" is our go to get-it-done guy around here. He coordinates our jobs from audit to install and beyond into the customer service realm. He spends his free time working on his cars including a 67 Oldsmobile, or you might find him making wooden guitars by hand. Bueler is a native of St. Louis, a graduate of Columbia College, and a really cool guy (as you can surely tell from his Men In Black headshot).
