Assistant Director of Construction
As a 20-year veteran of housing construction and a former U.S. Army Staff Sergeant, Doug Brown values teamwork and the power of delivering on the details. Doug is the Assistant Director of Construction at Chandler Partners’ construction company, Verdugo, responsible for overseeing operations and the day-to-day management of dozens of construction team members, including contractors and superintendents. He works shoulder to shoulder with Verdugo’s Director of Construction, Vito Montagna, on construction planning, budgets and schedules, implementing cost control measures, supporting relationships with long-term consultants, and serving as liaison to government agencies and the firm’s development partners.
Doug’s experience spans nearly every type of housing, from market rate and affordable apartments to mixed-use projects to single-family homes. This multifaceted expertise, coupled with a highly approachable personal style, has made him not just a respected leader within the firm, but also a motivating force for his projects.
“Doug is an exceptional construction manager who has the utmost level of integrity. He consistently brings his construction projects to completion on time or ahead of schedule and under budget. A straight shooter, Doug lets you know if he foresees a problem and offers feasible solutions.”
