Brendan is a graduate Mechanical Engineer, (University College Dublin, Ireland, 1965). Prior to his arrival in to the U.S.A. in 1986, Brendan spent almost 10 years working in Saudi Arabia, initially as a field superintendent. Later activities in Saudi included a 6 year spell as general manager for a Saudi family group of companies with activities in real estate, metal fabrication and petrochemical related mechanical construction.
The initial 13 or so years in the US were spent in a partnership with a Philadelphia developer, operating in the Pre-Engineered Metal Building market. The launch platform for this consisted of flex building shells built for speculative real-estate development. The partnership morphed into a supply-erect service to local GC's, CM's and some other building owners. The Flynn PEMB partnership was based laterally on a Butler Building dealership agreement, signed in August 1988. Through that relationship, Brendan became familiar with the Butler organization on many levels and as a result, in October 1999, Brendan was appointed independent Sales Representative for Butler Manufacturing Roof Group. In that time Brendan has become the leading independent Sales Representative for Butler in the U.S.A.
