Brandon Grigsby

Project Manager

While Brandon thought he might pursue a different career path at one point, it became clear that, like his father, Brandon has construction in his bones. He joined Pray in 2009 and worked his way through the field and office positions to become a shareholder. Since 2012, Brandon has been running jobs as a project manager. His natural interpersonal skills help him thrive in this position, making the sometimes difficult work of taking a team from inception to a completed project seem easy. Brandon has worked on a wide variety of projects, including several large bank projects. Brandon is involved in youth sports in his area and serves on boards of Fellowship of Christian AthletesRonald McDonald House and the YMCA where he sits on the finance committee and chairs the building committee.
