Grant Beck becomes President and CEO of Graham

May 17 2012

Graham Group Ltd. is proud to announce Grant Beck has assumed the position of President and Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately.

“This leadership transition will allow Graham to optimize its ability to respond to the changing marketplace and take advantage of growth opportunities,” says Ron Graham, Chair, Graham’s Board of Trustees. “We are confident Mr. Beck has the leadership experience and capabilities to lead our organization.”

Grant has a demonstrated track record – most recently successfully leading the delivery of P3 projects KVH and ASAP I and II – and impressive management skills to continue the Company’s ongoing progression and success. With broad operational experience in civil industrial, multi-unit, institutional and social infrastructure, he has successfully completed projects across Canada. An effective communicator, strategic thinker, and a visionary, Grant’s leadership will ensure the company continues to hold a competitive advantage in the industry.

After completing a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Saskatchewan in 1977, Grant earned his professional engineering status in 1979. With several years in the industry and a successful seven-year tenure as founding partner of a local construction company under his belt, he joined Graham in 1990 and advanced steadily by taking on a number of different roles and increasing responsibilities. Most recently, he served four years as the company’s vice-president, major commercial projects division.

Former President and CEO, Bill Flaig, retired this week. His retirement brings to a close a successful career that began with Graham 32 years ago.
