Grant Beck, President & CEO, Graham Group Ltd.

Dedicated leader is perhaps the best way to describe Grant Beck. During his 35-plus-year career, he has worked tirelessly to promote initiatives that he believes are important in the advancement of the construction industry.

Born and raised in Saskatchewan, Grant embodies the ‘prairie culture’ of hard work, perseverance and deep-rooted values – evident in his ascension to the top in every position he has held in the construction field. From labourer, to project manager, to President & CEO, Grant has consistently maintained a high level of integrity in every position, at every step of his career.

After completing a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Saskatchewan in 1977, Grant went on to earn 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, Grant set his sights on Graham. He first joined the company in 1990 and advanced steadily by taking on a number of different roles and increasing responsibilities ranging from Senior Project Manager, Commercial; Construction Manager, Commercial; District Manager, Commercial; General Manager, Commercial and Civil; Project Manager; Branch Manager; to Divisional Vice-President; Major Commercial Projects. Grant was appointed as the President and Chief Executive Officer of Graham Group Ltd. effective May 2012.

Grant has a demonstrated track record – most recently successfully leading the delivery of public-private partnership 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, Grant has successfully completed projects across Canada. His expertise spans all contract methods including fixed price, construction management, design-build, and DBFM (P3s). An effective communicator, strategic thinker, and a visionary, Grant’s leadership will ensure the company continues to hold a competitive advantage in the industry.
