The thrill of “work hard play hard” started for Billy Salts when he received his first paycheck as a farmhand at the age of 8 years old.
As a lifelong native to the Magic Valley, Billy has stayed committed ever since his young days to creating prosperous environments for our communities and its members.
Upon graduating from Valley High School in 2000, Billy began his journey in the electrical field. After four years of on the job training and classes through the College of Southern Idaho, Billy graduated and received his Electrical Journeyman’s License.
In 2013 Billy recognized the substantial growth our valley was having and saw the need to form an electrical company that could efficiently meet the future demands our area had coming for the industry. He formed the company Magic Valley Electric, and it began operations in January of 2013.
With the influence and direction of his team, six years later he formed a second company to better meet the needs of the residential customers called Magic Electric, Plumbing, Heating and Air, which services residents and small commercial properties, while Magic Valley Electric continues to provide electrical installation to the area’s agriculture, industrial and large commercial projects. Magic Solar was later added to the roster in 2021. The team of nearly 200 employees proudly services Magic Valley, Treasure Valley, Wood River Valley, and Star Valley, with a branch in Boise. Billy continues to oversee the daily operations alongside his team, striving each day to live up to the company motto, “One Team. One Dream.”
Billy and his wife Danielle are the parents of three children: Brinley, Tessa, and Cordell. Together with his wife’s skills as an Emotional Intelligence Coach and owner of Aspire EQ , they have created an award-winning company where they promote standards of excellence in all dynamics of their company culture on and off the job sites. They strive each day to create an atmosphere where each team member can meet their own personal and professional goals through relentless improvement, and in turn help the communities they’re a part of connect and succeed.
Jason Vickrey was born and raised in Pinedale, WY or as he calls it, God’s Country. He spent much of his childhood and high school years playing sports, enjoying the outdoors and working on the family ranch. He is a 2006 graduate of Pinedale High School where he excelled both academically and athletically along with serving as Senior Class President.
Jason moved to Twin Falls, Idaho in 2007 to attend the College of Southern Idaho and served as the student manager for the men’s basketball team. In 2010 he earned his bachelor’s degree from Idaho State University without ever leaving CSI’s Twin Falls campus. In his 6 ½ years working at the college, Jason held the roles of Student Manager, Director of Basketball Operations and Assistant Athletic Director.
In 2013 Jason was recruited into the banking industry by First Federal Bank where he was able to learn from, and work alongside Alan Horner and Jason Meyerhoeffer. In his time as a Business Development Officer, he worked closely with commercial customers helping them reach their financial goals within their businesses.
Jason was presented with a leadership and ownership opportunity as the VP Business Development at TitleOne in 2015. While it was an extremely hard and emotional decision to leave First Federal, this move was a life changing one for Jason. TitleOne is where Jason’s leadership journey really took off growing into roles as VP Magic Valley, SVP East Region and ultimately the President of TitleOne in 2019. In his role as President Jason has led his team through the pandemic and a booming and robust housing market, while nearly tripling the company’s revenue. TitleOne currently has 26 offices located throughout Idaho, Montana and Washington.
Since his career at TitleOne began Jason has been recognized as an Idaho CEO of Influence, Idaho Business Review Power 25, a 40 under 40 honoree in multiple publications and has been presented with the Twin Falls Extra Mile award on multiple occasions. TitleOne has also been voted a Top 10 Best Places to Work in Idaho every year of his Presidency.
Jason outkicked his coverage when he married the love of his life, Paige Vickrey, in 2010. They have four kids who keep them on the go! Weston (9), Hailey (7), Harper (5) and Wyatt (3). Paige and Jason’s passion project, the Jae Foundation, was formed in 2021 to raise awareness for mental health and suicide prevention. The foundation was formed in memory of Jason’s dear friend Jae Bing who took his life in 2016.
Jason credits much of his success to his family, friends, colleagues and most importantly his faith. In 2011 he and Paige were able to serve a lifechanging mission trip with Athletes in Action in Nairobi, Kenya. It was a turning point in both of their lives and ultimately led them to where they are today with their faith, family and careers. They remain passionate supporters of AIA and the work they do.
Jason’s purpose is TO BE LEADER and his why is TO BE A LIGHT. Be a leader, be a light is something he tries to live by every single day.
