Jarred Ralls
Jarred began his career with his father in 1998 as a general office manager at a fast growing startup which in-housed (6) disciplines; process piping, sheetmetal, electrical, carpentry, plumbing and laborer. Although his focus has always been in construction finance and accounting, Jarred also managed many projects including tenant improvements, seismic upgrades, and cleanroom expansions. He holds a degree in accounting and a bachelors in finance from San Jose State University. Prior to incorporating and rebranding the family business, he worked for B.O.S. Corporation, Rosendin Electric, Washington Group International and as a division controller during the acquisitions and consolidations of AECOM.
Jack started as an apprentice carpenter and because of his mechanical reasoning and natural leadership abilities he quickly worked his way to the top of his trade. His career included the construction of 11 dams starting with the McNary Dam and ending with the Guri Dam. He ran large crews and accepted projects as far north as Canada and as far south as Venezuela. He became known for his knack of conveying complicated construction through simple instructions. After 33 years he retired as a general superintendent at Guy F. Atkinson Company. Jack passed away in 1992 and left behind a foundation in the construction industry that future generations would build upon.
After majoring in Physics in Spokane, WA, Jerry joined his father's crew at the Lower Monumental Dam and continued to work with him on his rigging crew at the Hanford Nuclear Reactor in Washington State. He moved to San Jose, CA in the early 1980s where he worked on projects throughout the Bay Area including the remodel of Valley Fair Mall and the construction of the Santa Clara County Jail before starting his own general contracting firm in 1986 under license# 500054.
