ARLINGTON, TEXAS – January 10, 2014 – Bob Moore Construction is pleased to announce that Ed McGuire has been named the company’s new President.
Mr. McGuire assumes his new position with thirty years of industry experience in Texas, Oklahoma and around the country. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Construction Science from Iowa State University in 1983, and joined Bob Moore Construction as an estimator in 1984. He promoted quickly within the company, from estimator to project management, and became Vice President of Construction in 1992.
Since then, Mr. McGuire has provided executive-level oversight for all construction and field operations for the company, leading project management and field personnel, coordinating and negotiating with clients and overseeing ongoing projects. Mr. McGuire is a partner of Bob Moore Construction, and promotes to the position of President from his most recent role as Executive Vice President.
A nationally recognized construction leader and expert, Mr. McGuire has served on a variety of national industry committees and boards. He is a member (former President) for the Board of Directors for the Tilt-up Concrete Association. He also serves on several committees for the American Concrete Institute (ACI) including Proportioning Concrete Mixtures (Secretary), Construction of Concrete Floors, Design of Floors on Ground, Tilt-up Construction, New Certification Programs, and Tilt-up Construction Certification.
“This is an exciting time for Ed McGuire and for our company,” said Phillip Bell, Chief Executive Officer for Bob Moore Construction. “Under his leadership we have doubled and tripled our annual sales, implemented an award-winning safety program that allowed us to become one of the first OSHA Local Partnership members in Texas and earned numerous awards from the industry’s leading organizations. For 30 years Ed has helped us grow and succeed, and we have no doubt that he will have an even greater impact on our company in his new role as president.”
“I’m excited and proud to have the opportunity to serve as President for Bob Moore Construction,” said Mr. McGuire. “Since 1984 I’ve been blessed with tremendous role models and business partners. I joined this company right out of college and had the privilege to spend many years learning from Bob Moore, who taught me so much about construction, leadership and working with people. Mike Moore and Phillip Bell have been outstanding mentors, business partners and friends as well. It has been an amazing experience to be part of this company for so many years.
“We see great opportunities for commercial construction in the coming years,” added Mr. McGuire. “As one of the most widely respected construction companies in Texas, we are well positioned to take a leading role in this growth. I’m moving into the President position at a very exciting time in our market, and I’m looking forward to making the most of the new opportunities.”
