Top Granite Construction executive expected to take board seat

Santa Cruz Sentinel

WATSONVILLE – James Roberts, president and chief executive officer of Granite
Construction
, will run for election to the company board of directors at the
annual stockholder meeting next month.

If elected, Roberts will step into a seat vacated by predecessor David Watts,
a longtime board member and former head of the company.

Watts, 72, is retiring after serving as company president and chief executive
officer from 1987 to 2003 and as board chairman from May 1999 to August 2009.

Roberts, 54, has been with Granite since 1981. He took the top executive
position in September upon the retirement of Bill Dorey. Prior to that, Roberts
served a year as executive vice president and chief operating officer and in
other management positions.

Granite Construction is one of the nation’s largest diversified heavy civil
contractors and construction materials producers. The company serves public and
private sector clients.
