Bruce Wilson

VICE PRESIDENT OF OPERATIONS

Bruce knows what it means to get your hands dirty on a jobsite. He’s not only worked in the construction industry for the past 39 years – he was raised in the trades as a carpenter and bricklayer. As Welty’s Vice President of Operations, he is recognized as a leader and coach. He oversees the organization, scheduling, cost control and implementation of all projects, including working closely with each project team to coordinate all construction services.

Words to live by:

There is no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he does not mind who gets the credit.

– Ronald Reagan

Pets I’ve Had in My Life

Q&A session with: Bruce Wilson

Why you love what you do?

It gives me great satisfaction to pass on all the lessons I’ve learned in our business to the next generation. These lessons cannot be learned in any school or read in any book.

What problems do you enjoy solving?

The ones that never happen.

What is your fondest industry memory?

When I was very young, my father was a builder. I walked into his office, and he had a plaque on his wall that read: “I had no shoes and I complained, until I met a man who had no feet.” That has stuck with me my whole life.

What is the proudest moment of your career?

It was actually while volunteering to help build an ADA bathroom for a wounded warrior – the gentleman had no legs. Seeing how happy he was that he could help himself again is a feeling I’ll never forget.
