Kent Bounds, President of Brazos Masonry, Inc. (Waco, Texas), has been appointed to the position of MCAA Membership Committee Co-Chair.
Mr. Bounds has essentially worked his entire life at Brazos Masonry. As a result of his family’s involvement, Mr. Bounds has been involved in the business from his youth. Mr. Bounds started at a young age counting anchors and banding boards during the hot days of summer in Texas.
After he graduated from Hill County Junior College with an Associate Degree in Business Administration in 2002, he transitioned into a full-time Project Manager. Since 2002, Mr. Bounds has managed over $150 million dollars’ worth of masonry work. From his first project “Christian House of Prayer” with Drymalla Construction to the “Market Square Tower” – the largest & tallest burnished block project ever (42 Levels) with D.E. Harvey – Mr. Bounds has always strived to not only make the project successful for Brazos Masonry, but also for his customers and suppliers.
He has served on the Marketing Committee for the Texas Masonry Council and is a member of the MCAA’s South of 40 Committee on the national level. In addition, Mr. Bounds has served on the board for the Central Texas Masonry Council Association for the past 6 years, including as President from 2013-2015. He looks forward to his continued involvement within the masonry industry to assist with expansion of our market share and furthering general education of masonry constructability.
The Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) and our members welcome Kent to his new role.
