John F. Gravel is a mining professional with over 22 years of operations and project management experience. He works on the front lines of project delivery as Managing Director of Bedrock-Service. Gravel’s firm is a leading global project management and construction consultancy, supporting organizations that invest in, own and operate industrial assets.
The son of a decorated US Marine Corp Colonel, John F. Gravel spent the majority of his youth in Long Beach California where he started working for a Rio Tinto subsidiary, U.S. Borax. Based out of Vancouver Canada, Gravel has worked with large and small clients globally to support and deliver their projects successfully. In his latest blogging project, a follow-up of his enormously successful client engagements, Gravel exemplifies his life’s work of sharing with others how to improve their projects and their businesses.
Gravel knows first-hand what successful projects look like – through the many years on his own mining experiences and those of others. By age thirty, he was negotiating multi-million dollar contracts for mega projects on behalf of one of the top five mining houses in the world. He has since expanded on that commercial experience and fused it with the skilled discipline of a Project Management Professional and now devotes himself full-time to helping people understand the forces underneath the successes and opportunities for improvement in their mining initiatives.
Gravel earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, Finance from California State University and attended Duke University’s Management Training Courses. A frequent speaker around the world at live events, Gravel is a passionate and inspiring presenter who is at ease on both sides of the microphone.
