Our People

APi Group Understands the Power of One with the Support of Many

At APi Group, we believe the construction industry thrives on building and maintaining relationships. This belief pushes the reason we don’t “APi” the companies we purchase. Instead, we value and invest in the relationships of each company leader and his or her business. Our leaders enjoy the freedom to share best practices, develop peer-to-peer solutions and benefit by direct access to the wealth of experience each company brings to the APi Group family. We are a network of businesses and people who invest in one another.

Our board of directors:

  • Paul Grunau
  • Ron Magnus
  • Max Nichols
