Brian’s career encompasses over 22 years of commercial real estate experience directly performing or managing teams in strategy development, negotiation and development of assets for Fortune 500 companies both in house and through service provider and brokerage roles. Brian’s first 12 years of real estate were focused on office and industrial leasing including directing multiple national and international portfolios for Expedia, AT&T Wireless and Washington Mutual, including headquarters and campus master planning and office tower build to suit transactions. For the last 10 years Brian has led the real estate teams for Amazon and Microsoft respectively in their cloud services divisions, growing global data center deliveries through over 7 million square feet of build to suit data center development, and the acquisition and development of over 2,000 acres of data center land across North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.
After growing up in Southern California, Brian is one of the many and always beloved California transplants to the Pacific Northwest but his over 25 years of residence in Seattle has at least established some minor credibility. Brian enjoys spending as much time as possible with his wife and daughter, any number of outdoor and sports activities, trying to actually use all the tools in his garage and being an avid Husky and Seattle sports fan.
