Bruce Nearhood

South Dakota Strategic Accounts Manager


In his role as Strategic Accounts Manager for South Dakota, Bruce works to continuously develop new business opportunities for Consolidated Construction in and around Rapid City, with emphasis on the Black Hills region. He works closely with clients and prospective clients to help them understand the value Consolidated can bring to their building projects, and to ensure a smooth process from planning to design to construction.

Prior to joining Consolidated, Bruce was the Senior Gift Planner for South Dakota State University (SDSU), where he was responsible for engaging fellow Jackrabbit alumni to encourage monetary gifts to the university. Prior to that, he served as Vice President of Wealth Management for First Interstate Bank & Trust (FIBT) in Rapid City, where he provided financial planning services, and managed more than $50 million in assets. It was a natural progression for Nearhood, who owned his own financial advisory business for more than 22 years before joining FIBT.

Bruce holds a Bachelor of Science Degree from SDSU and is a Certified Financial Planner. He is a past president and board member of the Rapid City Rushmore Rotary Club, a former board member of the SDSU Council of Trustees, and served as a board member of the SDSU Alumni Association.
