Grewcock Named to Creighton University’s Board

The Creighton University Board of Directors has elected Bruce E. Grewcock, President and CEO of Peter Kiewit Sons’, Inc. to the Board. Grewcock has held numerous executive positions in Kiewit’s mining and contracting operations, and now leads a Fortune 500 company that is the fifth largest contractor in the U. S. and is a top-10 producer of coal.

Only the fifth person to assume leadership of Kiewit in modern times, he began his career with Utah International at its coal operations in northwest New Mexico. Grewcock joined Kiewit in 1982 as a chief engineer of the Black Butte Mine, where he was responsible for all mine engineering and environmental operations. He was promoted several times and in 1992 named president of Kiewit Mining Group. Two years later, he assumed additional responsibilities as a division manager for one of Kiewit’s construction groups, with executive and operations responsibilities for construction operations in Arizona, Nevada, Utah and Idaho. He was named president and chief operating officer of Kiewit Corporation in 2000, and became chief executive officer in 2005. He was named to the Board of Directors of Peter Kiewit Sons’, Inc., in 1994.

In addition to Creighton’s Board, he is also a director of the Omaha Community Foundation, TeamMates, Nebraska Medical Center and a governor of the Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben.

He received his Bachelor of Science degree in mining engineering from the Colorado School of Mines in 1976. He also attended the Stanford Graduate School of Business Executive Program in 1989.

Creighton University is a Jesuit, Catholic university bridging health, law, business and the arts and sciences for a more just world.
