Bryce Ballard


Hello! I’m Bryce Ballard, president of New Era Tile & Stoneworks, I’m thrilled to share a bit about myself with you. I grew up in the charming town of Kingsburg, CA, where the sense of community and beautiful surroundings shaped who I am today.

I graduated from Kingsburg High School and went on to play baseball for two years at Bakersfield College. My academic journey continued at Fresno State, where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management.

I am proud to be a third-generation tile and stone contractor with over 25 years of experience in the trade. Following in the footsteps of my family, I have dedicated myself to mastering the craft and bringing high-quality work to every project I undertake.

I am also blessed with a wonderful family. I’m married to my amazing wife, Sarah, and together we have two sons, Jack and Barrett, who keep us busy and bring immense joy to our lives.

When I’m not working, you can find me playing golf, flying airplanes, or enjoying fun activities with my family. I started New Era Tile and Stoneworks 15 years ago because I saw a need to incorporate technology in an industry seemingly stuck in the stone age (see what I did there). Aside from my wonderful family, running this company has been one of my greatest accomplishments.
