A decorated veteran, Bryan previously served in logistics management as a Supply Corps Officer after his graduation from the U.S. Naval Academy with a degree in mechanical engineering. He received his master’s degree in management from the Florida Institute of Technology. Prior to his appointment as President, Bryan served as Chief Administrative Officer at Hourigan. Under his leadership, the firm has received numerous awards including ENR’s 2021 Mid-Atlantic Contractor of the Year, a 2022 Top 400 National Contractor and Fortune’s 2022 Best Workplaces in Construction™.
Bryan’s people-first approach also extends into the community where he has served on the board of the Virginia Council of CEOs and as chair of the Children’s Museum of Richmond. Currently, he serves on the Regional Leadership Circle for Greater Richmond Partnership and as a board member for First Tee of Greater Richmond. His active community involvement is indicative of his strong desire to make a difference. Bryan is also a volunteer baseball, basketball, and softball coach. Both on and off the field, he excels in personnel management, logistics, and strategic planning.
