Granite executives to lead variety of areas

By |  January 29, 2021


Granite made three executive appointments, naming Jigisha Desai executive vice president and chief strategy officer, Lisa Curtis CFO and Tim Gruber senior vice president of human resources.

Granite president Kyle Larkin says the appointments reflect a transformation in the company’s business and culture, which includes reshaping Granite’s strategy to expand profitable growth and create value.

“With the appointment of these three leaders, we are taking steps to clearly define our strategic path and to capitalize on technology and innovation in the infrastructure and materials markets while making sure that we have the right controls and teams in place,” Larkin says.

As executive vice president and chief strategy officer, Desai will lead the development, alignment and execution of Granite’s strategy and innovation to drive profitable growth.



Curtis, meanwhile, is responsible for leading all of Granite’s global financial functions, including accounting, treasury and corporate finance. She will also oversee information technology and investor relations, and will ensure alignment between her functions and Granite’s cultural transformation.

As senior vice president of human resources, Gruber will oversee the strategic development of Granite’s human resources initiatives, including recruitment, compensation, benefits, inclusive diversity, training and development, labor relations and employee relations.

“Each of these leaders has the breadth and depth of experience to excel in their new roles and are valued members of Granite’s executive committee,” Larkin says. “Jigisha brings a long tenure with Granite, and she provides unique insight into our history and business. Lisa brings a fresh perspective into her role, and her counsel is highly valued. Having worked in both our field operations and corporate human resources department, Tim brings an invaluable understanding of our human resources needs across the enterprise.”
