Our Team

leadership by example

It takes extraordinary people to build extraordinary homes. That’s why everyone at the Carrell Group is among the best in their field. Our staff is just your size — big enough to provide you with experts in every aspect of your home’s development and small enough for you to know everyone here on a first-name basis.

Bruce Carrell


As president of The Carrell Group, Bruce is responsible for the executive leadership of the Company and for all construction activities.

Bruce has been a licensed General Contractor in North and South Carolina since the late 1980’s. He is an honors graduate of the Indiana University School of Business (’80), and has received many building achievement awards including “Builder of the Year” from the Horry County Homebuilders Association in 1993.

Bruce’s grandfather (who Bruce is named after) was a homebuilder and master carpenter. Bruce learned his early building skills from his father, Denny Carrell, and carries on a proud tradition of three generations of building. While Bruce enjoys building homes and commercial buildings, his true passion is the design side of the process. He has drawn literally thousands of plans and enjoys interacting with our clients, learning what their dreams and goals are, and developing designs that accomplish for them.

Away from work, Bruce is an avid musician, composer, cook, zymologist, wine enthusiast, travel writer and racquetball player. He is also a licensed private pilot… and enjoys flying his Cessna 182 to some of our more distant jobsites. He divides his time between his homes in Myrtle Beach and Charleston, SC with his wife Sonya, and enjoys spending time with his daughters Catherine (an employee of General Electric) and Laura (a student at Winthrop University).

After meeting with the Carrell Sales Team over a year ago, I knew I wanted you guys to build our home. Mike and I have been so pleased with that decision. Your team…The “Building Partner,” Grand Designs Team, and our construction manager…have gently held our hands and made this experience truly fun and exciting! As this process continues, we know the Carrell Homes family will take care of us and our home! Thanks again for your professional team and the hard work they do for us!
