During his previous time with Gilbane, Brown rose through the organization, from business development manager to vice president and operations manager and senior vice president of the Southeast division.
“Gilbane is a values-based company, and that informs how we approach projects, how we work with one another, and how we build lasting relationships with our clients,” said Brown. “Gilbane really is more than a team—it’s a family—and I’m eager to be a part of that family again. For me, this is a homecoming on a number of levels. Gilbane builds more than buildings, and that inspires me as I prepare for this new role.”
Most recently, Brown served as an executive vice president and general manager for Skanska USA Building’s Florida operations.
Brown has a degree in civil engineering from the University of Michigan and boasts an extensive list of community leadership roles, including past board memberships on the Florida Chamber of Commerce, Tampa Museum of Art and Student Aces. He was recently recognized as one of Florida 500’s Most Influential Business Leaders and by Savoy as one of the Power 300 Most Influential Black Executives in the USA.
Gilbane Building Company is currently working on or has recently completed a number of signature and transformational projects across diverse markets in the Midwest and Texas, including:
- Adlai E. Stevenson High School, the first net zero high school in Illinois in Lincolnshire, IL
- Indiana University Health’s new downtown hospital in Indianapolis, IN
