| Chairman and CEO
"Being at Columbia is not work for me but, rather it’s a huge part of who I am. I build things, whether it’s a construction project or a business plan to orchestrate the ground work and talent to make it happen – it’s all very rewarding to me."
As Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Columbia Construction Company, Bruce takes pride in going beyond the daily operations of Columbia and offers strategic counsel and construction expertise on projects, setting the tone for the entire Columbia team. Bruce joined Columbia in 1968 and has held a variety of supervisory and management positions. A combination of past experience and present responsibilities, means Bruce has been involved with most of the projects undertaken by Columbia over the past three decades. For Bruce, seeing employees grow and realize their highest career potential is the most rewarding part of his work. As an industry leader, he has presented at national forums for organizations such as NAIOP and IFMA and he has been a guest lecturer at renowned institutions such as the Harvard Graduate School of Design and MIT’s Center for Real Estate.
Outside of the office, Bruce enjoys spending time with his family, traveling to Los Angeles whenever he get a chance to visit his daughter, son-in-law and two young grandchildren. Bruce also likes to join his fellow Columbia colleagues on the course for a relaxing round of golf.
