Joseph Maierle, founder
Three generations of Morrisons and two generations of Maierles have led the employee-owned firm: John Sr., John Jr. and Robert Morrison, and Joe and Jim Maierle.
In 1991 John Sr.’s grandson, current president and CEO Robert Morrison, returned to Montana from CH2M Hill in Boise. He is the third and most recent Morrison to lead the firm.

“When I came back to Montana and joined the firm, I started doing some wastewater work in Cut Bank,” Robert says. “We were replacing two of their sewer lift stations so I got the old drawings for both stations. The older set was from the late 1940s and had been drawn up by the Morrison Engineering Co. To my pleasant surprise, my grandfather had designed the first lift station that I got to replace. It must have been one of the first jobs he did. I got to tell him that he did a pretty good job with that lift station because it lasted more than 50 years.”
