BOSTON–Suffolk has hired Bradley Brown as its new President of Texas. Mr. Brown will be responsible for leading Suffolk operations in Texas and the Central Southwest, supporting our mission and vision, enhancing functional and operational processes and infrastructure, and driving future growth in the region.

“Texas has emerged from the pandemic as one of the country’s strongest markets for development and construction, and we are expanding our presence in the region as a result of our growing portfolio of landmark projects,” said John Fish, Chairman and CEO of Suffolk. “Brad’s in-depth knowledge of construction, broad business acumen and proven leadership qualities make him an ideal leader for our Texas operation at this critical time for the company. We are thrilled to have a leader of his caliber join our Suffolk team.”

Mr. Brown has more than 24 years of industry experience. Prior to his new role at Suffolk, he held various leadership positions at Austin Commercial, one of the largest construction companies in the country.

He held leadership roles within other business disciplines at the company, including human resources and marketing. Mr. Brown also spent two years as CEO of TEXO, the construction association representing commercial contractors in North and East Texas.

With the addition of Mr. Brown to the Suffolk Texas team, Suffolk executive Mark Penny will shift his role from Dallas General Manager to Chief Operating Officer of Dallas, and former Suffolk Dallas Chief Operating Officer Mark Reed will assume the role of Chief Operating Officer of National Gaming.
