President and CEO

Ted Mayes


Ted Mayes, President/CEO of Bristlecone Structures, is a native of California.  His family made the arduous journey to California during the Gold Rush.  Here they put there talents to work initially in construction and ranching.  Later they branched out into land development and banking.  I guess you could say construction was in Ted's blood.  After graduating from college with an engineering degree, Ted joined one of the world's largest construction companies to build heavy industrial projects all across the US and overseas.  It was good training that led him to obtain his own general contractor's license in 1979.  Since then he has built several successful businesses devoted to project management, land development and construction.  Ted has managed projects with over a thousand people and budgets of over 1/2 billion dollars.  Bristlecone Structures is a family owned business that has been active in residential, commercial and public works projects since 2005. 


In his spare time Ted likes racing his sail boat, camping, back packing, fishing and hanging out with his family.

Away from work Windy is very active with her children's busy lives as a Girl Scout leader, water polo and swimming mom.  She loves to cook and garden, and go boating with her husband and family.

Traci is an owner of BSI and is a licensed California Real Estate Broker.  She gained her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration / Entrepreneurship.  Her working career started in the Construction / Rehab Department for a large publicly traded REIT that specializes in hotels.  In that position she developed an in-depth knowledge of planning, cost controls and project management systems necessary to complete construction projects on-time and under budget, while maintaining quality of craftsmanship and minimizing disruption to on-going business operations.  She has worked for a large commercial appraisal firm, sold real estate, and worked as a commercial property manager.  She joined BSI as our Chief Financial Officer.  Traci has a good head for numbers and keeps our company and our clients projects on a sound financial footing.
