Mackie Bounds, BMI

Mackie Bounds, CEO

Mr. Bounds grew up in the retail carpet business. He came in contact with the masonry world at the age of 16 while working as a laborer. Since that time, he has always worked in some phase of construction. Upon graduating, he pursued a career in landscaping, became a landscape designer and at the age of 21 owned and operated a successful wholesale greenhouse and plant leasing business. Mr. Bounds moved to Texas in 1980 and worked in Waco for Barsh Construction and Kent Mill & Supply (architectural design and woodworking manufacturer) as an estimator. Throughout this time he remained fascinated with the masonry industry and continued to take advantage of opportunities in masonry. In 1982, Mr. Bounds became Vice-President of Al Brown Masonry (a commercial masonry contractor) and helped the company grow into one of the leading masonry contractors in the southwest United States. In 1989, Al Brown moved to Colorado and Mr. Bounds decided that the time was right to pursue his dream. After careful planning and crafting of a business plan (along with a policy and procedure manual) to operate a commercial masonry contracting firm, on March 21, 1989, Brazos Masonry, Inc. (BMI) was born. Shortly thereafter, James Clay and Walter Dossett joined as partners in the business and BMI quickly became recognized by their competitors as a leader in the industry.
