About Brent

Brent's grandfather was a carpenter and a painter, and Brent grew up in awe of his father, watching him build projects that shaped peoples lives and the world in which we live, including many projects for the 1996 Olympic Games.


Brent earned his Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1981 and began his own construction career.

He was an MEP Coordinator and Senior Project Manager on complicated projects like the Brook Army Medical Center and housing for the 1996 Summer Olympic Village.


Because of these first-hand experiences, Brent speaks with a deep understanding of his audience and the problems they commonly face.


His passion is to transform the industry into one that is more collaborative, more relationship driven, and more fun.

The impact of Brent's unique programs spans the globe to places such as New York, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Oslo, Cape Town, Helsinki, Buenos Aires, Moscow, Prague, London, and as far away as Hong Kong.
