Brandywine Homes, a pioneer of infill development in Southern California, announced today it has hired two industry veterans to serve as vice presidents of development. Brian M. Geis, former senior project manager with William Lyon Homes, and Eric E. Everhart, former senior project manager for Van Daele Development Corp., will perform duties related to due diligence, entitlements and overall project management of communities within the Brandywine portfolio.

“Brian and Eric are experienced real estate professionals who will enhance our team,” said Brandywine Homes’ President Alex G. Hernandez. “I look forward to their contributions to Brandywine’s execution of successful infill housing communities.”

Geis consulted for several companies about land acquisition, entitlement, site planning, market research, project design and due diligence before he joined William Lyon Homes in 2015. Before that, he was vice president of merchant homebuilding for Brookfield Residential, development director and project manager for Brookfield Homes, project manager for Catellus Residential Group and Canaan Construction. He began his career as a fiscal and economic analyst with Stanley R. Hoffman Associates in Los Angeles.

Before he was at Van Daele, Everhart was vice president of development for City Ventures, a residential developer specializing in high-density, urban and downtown infill housing in California, and vice president of development and director of finance for The Olson Company, overseeing urban infill developments in Orange County and greater Los Angeles. Everhart has also worked with J.M. Peters, The Anden Group, Shea Homes, Hearthside Homes and Forecast Homes.
