McKinstry Names Michael Grabham Regional Vice President of Energy & Technical Services

Promotion underscores continued growth and reinforces leadership across Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma

DALLAS (Feb. 21, 2019) — McKinstry named Michael Grabham vice president of Energy & Technical Services for its South Region, reflecting his continued leadership and ability to drive growth across the company’s Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma operations.

Grabham will lead and manage McKinstry’s efforts to reduce client operating costs and save energy in the built environment. Grabham helped establish the company’s Dallas office in 2008, and McKinstry has since grown into a market leader in design-build and energy savings performance contracting.

Grabham has been instrumental in McKinstry becoming a trusted and preferred partner for clients spanning K-12 schools, higher education, municipal and healthcare markets. He’s led McKinstry to expand across Texas—opening offices in Houston, San Antonio and Austin—while also growing a client base in Oklahoma and Arkansas.

“For more than a decade, Michael’s leadership, passion for excellence and dedication have been invaluable to our company,” said Ash Awad, McKinstry’s chief market officer. “From partnering with key clients in Texas like Kilgore College to serving new communities like Sebastian County, Arkansas, Michael exemplifies our commitment to save energy and reduce waste in the built environment.”

Grabham is deeply engaged in community outreach and philanthropic efforts in Dallas as well as nationwide. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering from Baylor University.

McKinstry’s energy and technical services offerings include energy savings performance contracting, commissioning, facility condition assessments, and other services that optimize facility operations—filling gaps in building lifecycles while saving energy for owners and operators.
