Xpera Group Promotes Steve Grimes to President, Founder Ted Bumgardner Shifts to Chairman

Xpera Group announced some changes in the executive structure, promoting Steve Grimes to president, while the founder of the company, Ted Bumgardner steps down and assumes the role of chairman.

Xpera Group, the West Coast’s most comprehensive team of construction consultants and real estate advisors, announced today that Steve Grimes has been promoted to president. The position was previously held by company founder, Ted Bumgardner, who will now serve as chairman and focus his time on the firm’s construction forensics business. The moves come as the San Diego-based firm prepares to kick off its 10th year in business in 2019.

Grimes has been an integral member of Xpera team since joining as director of construction services in 2016. His roots in San Diego’s construction industry run deep, including over 30 years with Roel Construction, H.G. Fenton and Nelson & Sloan, as well as running his own consulting firm. He will continue to play a key role in Xpera’s building envelope group and marketing efforts, while also providing leadership for the firm’s other specialty consulting services, including quality assurance and real estate/development services.

“I am humbled and honored to take on the role of president at Xpera,” said Grimes. “It’s never easy to follow in the footsteps of such a respected and successful president, let alone the company founder. However, I look forward to the challenge and to continuing the entrepreneurial spirit that has served Xpera so well for almost a decade.”

Bumgardner will now serve as chairman of Xpera, staying actively involved in big-picture strategy and overall direction for the company. He will also focus his efforts on growing Xpera’s highly successful construction forensics business, which has long served as the cornerstone of the company.

“I’ve been working as an expert witness for almost 30 years and I truly love it,” said Bumgardner. “Over the past year, with the help of my amazing team, our forensics business has experienced incredible growth and we see much more opportunity on the horizon. I’m excited to be able to focus more of my time in this dynamic sector of the business.”
