Brandon Birtcher Relaunches Family Development Firm with Daughter

Birtcher Development LLC unveiled the next iteration of the 78-year-old company. The Newport Beach, CA-based firm is a preeminent national industrial real estate developer that spans five generations of family ownership including Brandon Birtcher (fourth) and Brooke Birtcher Gustafson (fifth).

Brandon Birtcher, CEO, says, “Relaunching Birtcher Development LLC alongside my daughter marks a momentous occasion in the Birtcher timeline. Returning to our family roots has always been a strategic part of our master plan.”

The relaunch includes a new brand identity that prominently features the Birtcher family crest, a nod to the company’s rich family heritage.

Brooke Birtcher Gustafson, managing director, says, “Our company philosophy has always been that real estate requires the intimate attention of its sponsor, and I look forward to continuing our family tradition by being closely involved in each project while building upon our long-lasting relationships with brokers, tenants and consultants in our core markets.”
