In December 2004, Bruce Grewcock was named President and Chief Executive Officer. He is only the fifth person to assume leadership of the company in its modern era. Those preceding him were Peter Kiewit, Bob Wilson, Walter Scott, Jr. and Ken Stinson. Ken Stinson continues to serve as Chairman of the Board.
Kiewit is consistently ranked among the top 10 contractors by Engineering News Record, with 2010 revenues of almost $10 billion. We have virtually unlimited bonding capacity and are one of the few construction firms able to compete for billion-dollar mega-projects. However, our organizational system of local operating districts enables us to take on smaller contracts as well. The average size of a Kiewit project is under $25 million.
Kiewit is one of the largest employee-owned firms in the nation and we are noted for broad-based ownership, with U.S. and Canadian employee-shareholders. Nearly all construction projects are staffed by one or more owners of our company.
Kiewit has survived and prospered since 1884 because our people have been willing to change and pursue the opportunities presented in each era. Now well into our second century, we are one of the most highly regarded and respected construction firms in the nation. We are known for the competitive spirit of our people and our ability to produce quality workmanship and on-schedule performance for our clients.
