“Throughout his career, Pete has demonstrated his industry knowledge and strong operational skills in all areas of the construction business,” said Granite President and Chief Executive Officer, James H. Roberts. “His background and proven leadership in our vertically-integrated business, coupled with his unparalleled work ethic, will be valuable assets as we work to capitalize on our opportunities throughout the state.”

Matheson most recently served as vice president for Granite’s Washington Region and was instrumental throughout the company’s acquisitions of both Superior Group and Wilder Construction Company. He joined Granite in 1989 as an estimator in the company’s Reno, Nevada operations. From 1989 to 1997, he progressed through the ranks as a project superintendent, project manager and construction manager. Matheson left Granite briefly in 1997 and rejoined the company’s Utah operations in 1999, serving in several management roles and helping to create one of Granite’s most successful businesses.

In his new role, Matheson will have the responsibility of overseeing the bidding and building activities of Granite’s vertically-integrated operations located throughout California. In addition, he will provide expertise and oversight in areas such as strategic planning, forecasting, estimating, safety, technology and quality.
