Brian Thomason

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – The Bergeron Family of Companies has announced that Brian Thomason has been named Vice President of Operations for Bergeron Land Development. Thomason will also retain his responsibilities as Vice President of Bergeron Emergency Services, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bergeron Land Development. In his new expanded role, he will oversee the operations and management of the two lines of business.

“Brian joined Bergeron in 2010 and, over the years, has become extremely familiar with the land development side of our business,” said J.R. Bergeron, President of Bergeron Land Development. “His input has influenced our business development process to which we can credit several recent significant design/build contracts. Promoting him to manage both businesses was the logical choice.”

During his 18 year career in disaster recovery and debris management, Thomason has participated in more than 100 large-scale debris management projects as a result of over 25 major disaster declarations, with simultaneous projects surpassing $300 million in value and managing over 10,000 employees. He has held a variety of positions from field supervision to incident manager providing him with an in-depth knowledge of disaster relief operations, FEMA public assistance including program resolutions, federal and state funding negotiations, and on-site OSHA and MOT compliance. Before joining Bergeron Emergency Services, Thomason was the Deputy Director of Emergency Management in Cumberland County, North Carolina.
