About Nibbi

Robert L. Nibbi

President and Chief Executive Officer

Named Vice President in 1995, President in 2003 and CEO in 2020, Bob Nibbi has grown the firm from a medium-sized operation to one of the largest builders in the Bay Area. As President and CEO, Bob oversees company operations and is actively involved in each phase of the firm’s projects—from estimating through completion.

Understanding that the success of a project is largely determined in the planning stages, Bob is closely involved in every aspect of Nibbi’s preconstruction process, regularly attending design meetings and working with the estimating department on budgets and value engineering.

Clients and employees appreciate Bob’s ability to take visionary risks, while keeping a disciplined eye on economic fundamentals.
