Growing up in his family’s own construction business, Robert, more commonly called Bob, was 10 years old when he was working a CAT D6 Bulldozer and detonating dynamite for excavation work with his father. From those early, exciting years, Bob knew he wanted to continue to grow his career in construction. Over the course of his career, he has done so, passing his craft to his own children as well.
The former owner of his own construction business that focused on water resources and specialty construction, Bob joined the KIELY family bringing not only his expertise in construction and the water resources industry to our portfolio, but also bringing his two sons and their immense talents.
As the Senior Vice President of Operations and Management in our Water Resources division, Bob enjoys creating solutions for complex projects and solving challenges that may arise as they progress. Responsible for direct day-to-day operations and forward planning for our water customers, Bob proactively looks for efficiencies that can be implemented from project conception to best serve our customers.
