Brock Grunt



  • University of California, Berkeley, B.A., Economics


Brock grew up surrounded by home and boat building, having an architect father that was involved with both. He initially attended the California Maritime Academy studying Nautical Industrial Technology, intending to chase a career in logistics surrounded by ships and the water, but ended up transferring to and graduating from the University of California, Berkeley, with a B.S. in Economics. After two summer internships with McGuire and Hester, Brock began his full-time employment in 1988.

Initially, he was hired as a Project Accountant, a title which at the time came with the duties of doing whatever was needed to get the job done, from running a jackhammer to scheduling the work and billing the owner. From there, he was promoted to Project Manager. In 1999, Brock became the Operations Manager for M&H's Underground Pipeline/Concrete Structures Division. In 2003, with company growth and some restructuring, Brock's title changed to Area Manager. Following another company restructuring in 2016, Brock was promoted to Executive V.P. of Operations.

In 2022, after more than 30 years of being involved in all aspects of the Company's operations, Brock accepted the role of President of McGuire and Hester. Bringing a wealth of leadership experience and passion to the position, Brock looks forward to working as a team to continue building on the achievements of generations of strong leadership.
