Bob Harris is Founder and Chairman of the Board of Harris Group Inc.
Born in Canada, Bob was educated at the University of North Dakota, where he played hockey and earned a degree in Geological Engineering.
In the early 70’s, Bob moved his family to the Pacific Northwest, and in 1975 he formed an engineering firm to service the oil, gas, chemicals, marine, power, and pulp and paper industries. By 1983 the firm grew to become one of the largest full-service engineering firms in the Pacific Northwest, earning a place in Engineering News Record’s Top 500.
By the 90's, Bob Harris' vision for renewable fuels became a reality, enabling us to help our customers develop and commercialize next generation biofuels and conversion technologies. Today, Harris Group provides multi-discipline engineering through 12 domestic and International offices to a wide variety of markets, and proudly serves over 50% of the world's largest providers of alternative fuels.
Although now “retired”, Bob remains active with the firm. He continues to bring in new business and help Harris Group maintain its leadership position in the markets it serves. Bob and his wife, Louise, maintain a home on Lake Washington in Seattle, as well as a winter home in LaQuinta, California.
