The Pigott Entrepreneurship Lecture Series:
Building a Business:
How a national construction powerhouse started with two shovels and a pick-up.
Timothy Barnard’s life has focused on seizing dreams and opportunities and turning them into realities. After completing his degree and some global travels, Mr. Barnard landed in Montana. With only $1,000, two shovels, a pick and all of his worldly possessions in a pickup truck, he set out to launch his own company, an inspiration that ultimately grew into a multi-million-dollar heavy civil contractor that undertakes construction and engineering projects on a global scale.
Mr. Barnard first became involved with Gonzaga University when he attended the Gonzaga-in-Florence program. He has served on Gonzaga’s Board of Trustees since 2000. He received Gonzaga’s Distinguished Alumni Merit Award in 2004 and an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Gonzaga in 2017.
