BRENT MUSSON is an internationally respected real estate executive and consultant. He has developed a uniquely eclectic perspective, amalgamated through his executive roles during the technology revolution of the ‘90s, his experience as a California General Contractor, and his many years managing international, cross-functional teams. His consulting practice, materialsDIRECT, provides consulting support and planning to some of sub-Saharan Africa’s most active developers and Sourcing/Logistics support to domestic commercial and residential builders, providing feasibility, planning, program management and much more, to major mixed-use, retail, entertainment/hospitality and residential developments on five continents. Mr. Musson is also Councilman Musson, having served as the Recording Secretary of the Altadena Town Council, in Altadena, CA and on the Land Use Committee, the West Altadena Project Area Committee and as a founding member of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Altadena Stakeholders Committee. Prior to his entry into real estate development, Mr. Musson was a highly sought after and often published consultant to the dot-com and technology development industries. His calling card was his ability to combine a company’s underutilized assets with commoditized technology that is both affordable and easy to implement, to build new products and take them to market. This ability earned him high-profile contracts with major international brands. His expertise in product development, western construction methods and international logistics are enhanced by his mastery of Lean Six Sigma. Mr. Musson holds degrees in Real Estate Development, Public Policy & Sustainable Urban Planning, and Supply Chain Management from USC. These fields of study combine to provide Mr. Musson with the essential tools to plan and execute real estate development projects, within emerging economies that are strategically designed to optimize their position relative to global markets.
