About Us

Capitol Electronics Inc. (CEI) was originally founded in 1987 by Wayne Hooper, CPMR, to provide experienced, professional sales and customer service representation to the wireless communications industry in the States of Indiana and Kentucky. Today CEI has grown in both staff and territory covering the states of Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, celebrating our 25th year of serving customers in 2012.

In 1990 Nick Melander who entered the commercial wireless business in the mid 70’s, joined Hooper and the two built a powerful presence in the land mobile and wireless industry. As a team they were recognized by manufacturers and other rep firms alike for their creativity, technical expertise and ability to significantly develop their core markets. Their partnership continued until Hooper's retirement in 2006.

In 2008 Nick partnered with Dick Putt, a sales and marketing professional with experience managing large technology-focused sales organizations, serving government and Fortune 500 companies. Coming from corporate America, Dick offered a new perspective on the business. Their partnership created a skill set of sales, technology and marketing that has taken Capitol to the next level. As a company Capitol is heavily focused on the customer, and the manufacturers the company serves while utilizing technology and resources to create a competitive advantage. In 2011 Nick retired from the day to day business but continues to provide ad hoc consulting.

Complementing the leadership is a team of experienced Account Managers who are a trusted resource with over 100 years of combined experience in the Land Mobile and Wireless industries. They are established members of their respective communities, and offer valuable insight into the challenges and opportunities of each market.

We continue in that tradition each and every day. We have a rich background of expertise within our current leadership.
