Brian Brown

Preconstruction and Design Management

Originally from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Bryan Brown made his way to Texas by way of the architecture and construction industry. Prior to co-founding ChalkLine, he spent four years at RyanCompanies, where he served as Director of Preconstruction for their South Central office, managing an extensive portfolio of national projects.

Prior to his tenure at RyanCompanies, Bryan was Lead Estimator at Trane and Senior Project Manager at a San Antonio-based contracting firm before that.

He credits his days at Northeastern University in Boston for his talent for on-point cost estimating and streamlining complex processes. While earning his bachelor's and Master of Architecture at Northeastern, he gained invaluable real-world experience through the school’s prestigious co-op program, which afforded him the opportunity to spend a year helping manage the construction of a 485,000 GSF, 1200-bed dormitory through the University’s Capital Projects office.
