Founded and operated by experienced businesswomen and sisters, Carol and Tina Balthazar, Balthazar Electriks is highly competitive in a non-traditional industry for minority entrepreneurs. 25 years of steady, sustained growth; positioned for public and private sector customer expansion beyond the Southern Region.

Balthazar Electriks, throughout its growth and development, has sought to carefully target and develop our customer base and carve out our niche. Our goal is to build a strong foundation and earn our positioning in this very competitive industry while developing capacity.


Carol Balthazar played a fundamental role in the wholesale distribution industry.

A seasoned professional with diversified experience in the corporate, entrepreneurial and academic sectors, Carol possessed expertise in policy and program development and management, business and entrepreneurial development, minority and women affairs, and corporate/public affairs/strategic alliances.

An entrepreneur and business-woman to her core, Balthazar Electriks was Carol Balthazar‘s crowning achievement and passion project for 25 years. Her professional career began in New York where she learned how to navigate the corporate world, and more importantly fine-tuned her natural ability to connect and network with anyone she met.  She brought that knowledge and experience back to Louisiana when she returned in 1993 and founded Balthazar Electriks.

An advocate for small businesses, Carol founded the RiverWorks Business Development Group in 1992 and worked with the Port of New Orleans as its Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) consultant until 2016. Carol was also a proud member of The Collaborative, a group of small-business owners and citizens advocating for economic equity and parity in New Orleans.
