About Our Leadership


Marisa Graff – Founder & President

Marisa Graff began GroundHog Utility Construction in 2003 with an initial small personal cash investment. Her diverse professional background in transportation, telecommunications and cosmetics combined with a strong work ethic gave her the necessary skills to begin the company. Starting with only three employees and operating out of her home, the company has since expanded to 15 – 20 full time staff members.


Keith Graff – VP of Operations

Keith Graff started in the directional boring field in September 1989 as a field technician with Flowmole, Inc., (the pioneer of the industry). He quickly worked his way up to a leadership position, his crew consistently being recognized for excellence. Keith then went on to manage field operations where he was responsible for the safety, logistics and productivity of multiple crews.

GroundHog Utility Construction is a Underground Utility Contractor serving clients in Roselle, Schaumburg, Evanston, Joliet, Des Plaines, Elgin, Naperville & Chicago IL.
