George Puffett, PE

Principal

George Puffett has been with Cammisa + Wipf for 22 years. Like many in his field, he began his path to electrical engineering by tinkering. He liked to figure out how things worked. He started in grade school by wiring up door bells, and then moved on to investigating the complexities of automobile electrical systems. By the time he finished high school his destiny was clear.

A graduate of Iowa State University with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering, George started his professional career at PG&E, where he developed a foundation in power engineering. At Cammisa + Wipf he is known for his iconic neck ties, and his deep expertise in power distribution, medium voltage and SCADA systems, which are key to our work with large campus clients.

George is driven by solving complex problems, and says his best reward is a happy client. Some of his satisfied clients include UCSF (University of California at San Francisco), where he’s helping create the future of their Parnassus campus by developing and implementing their master electrical power plan; UC Davis and San Francisco State University, where he’s designing electrical improvements and developing a master plan of their campus distribution systems; and UCSF Mission Bay, where he is designing their initial power distribution system.

George is a professional member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), where he serves as San Francisco Section Treasurer and Director and has received both the Millennium Medal Award and the Outstanding Engineer Award. He is also a member of the National Society of Professional Engineers.
