Bruce is a shareholder, board member and the President of Grant Aviation, a role he has served in for over twenty years. Originally from Tennessee, Bruce has a background in construction, computer science and business management.
In 1991 while attending the University of Alaska Anchorage, Bruce was approached by the former owner of Delta Air Service and asked to serve as a crewmember on a fishing vessel. Not wanting to miss a chance at adventure, he accepted the assignment and soon found himself the purser on the Rex Horton in charge of millions of dollars in cash used to purchase fish from local fishermen. When the fishing season ended, Bruce was asked to join the team of Delta Air Service (which later became Grant Aviation), in Emmonak, Alaska.
One of his first tasks was designing and constructing the much needed Emmonak hangar. From there, Bruce served as an aircraft ramper, ticket agent, dispatch agent and Station Manager at the Emmonak and Bethel stations. His experience on the frontlines has given him a valuable insight into daily operations. Bruce was a key player in negotiating and obtaining numerous contracts such as US Mail service, LifeMed, and Essential Air Service.
Bruce has worked with various different government organizations such as FAA, DOT, USPS, USCG, and homesteaded in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley. In his spare time Bruce enjoys hiking with his two sons in the rugged mountains of Alaska.
