Brian Brooke serves as Director of Real Estate Development, building strong external relationships within brokerage networks, third-party consultants, governmental agencies and real estate users. He combines a background in finance with big-picture focus, taking a leadership role in pursuits as he plans and prepares responses to qualified development and construction opportunities.
Before joining Ryan Companies as a Real Estate Development Manager, Brian worked as a hotel developer in Minneapolis—both ground-up development projects and existing asset acquisition and disposition—across the United States, for high-profile brands including Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt and Starwood.
Prior to his years in the hotel development space, he spent time in the public finance side of investment banking, where he not only helped refinance institutions’ existing debt portfolios but also helped finance new developments for institutions including hospitals and higher education facilities. Brian has guided those institutions through new projects, while minimizing the impact on their balance sheets through creative financing structures.
At Ryan Companies, we have the privilege of creating the spaces where people live their lives. Whether it's their residence, their place of work, or the space where they come to play, these are places where people thrive. And as experts in construction and commercial real estate, our creativity is fueled by your story. Together, we build value, build communities and build the backdrops for life.
