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.
