Denver, CO (Oct. 2, 2019) – Innovative, insightful and imaginative, all words used to describe Deron Brown, president and chief operating officer of PCL Construction’s U.S. operations and one of this year’s recipients of the Most Admired CEO award, sponsored by the Denver Business Journal. 

Deron’s construction roots run deep. He’s followed in the footsteps of his grandfather and father; his grandfather worked as a master carpenter and his father owned his own construction company. Deron’s PCL career began in the Orlando office where he started as a project engineer and through hard work and determination, later became one of the company’s youngest vice presidents and district managers. Throughout his career, Deron has proven to be a leader who inspires those around him. 

“Being ranked among my peers in Denver as one of the Most Admired is a great honor,” said Deron. “I’m fortunate to work alongside truly amazing people at PCL and am proud to be a part of an organization that believes in me and trusts me to lead our U.S. operations. I would like to say a special thank you to my wife and family, mentors, leaders, colleagues and PCL family who have supported me through this journey.” 

Deron promises clients, employees and community partners that he will continue to challenge the process and help shape the industry by pushing the boundaries while continuously driving for success. In addition to being named a Most Admired executive in Denver, Deron was recognized by Engineering News-Record as a Top 25 Newsmaker in 2018 for his commitment to advancing technology in the construction industry through the creation of PCL PartsLab.
