Bruce has dedicated himself to the construction industry for more than 40 years. After numerous forts, chicken coops, and gardens tastefully designed by his architectural family, he began working his college summers for his family's construction company as a parts runner, laborer, timekeeper, and everything else. As a graduate of California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering, Bruce got his first job out of college working as a project engineer.

He joined McGuire and Hester in 1997 as a project manager and estimator and three years later was promoted to estimating manager in charge of the underground and structures. Bruce was named chief estimator for McGuire and Hester in 2007 and now oversees the estimating groups at all of our company's locations. He is actively involved in volunteer work throughout the industry and is a past President and Board Member of United Contractors. He and his wife Debbie have two children and live in Danville. In his spare time, he enjoys family time and anything outdoors.
