Penn State Brandywine welcomes new Advisory Board member

MEDIA, Pa. — Penn State Brandywine’s Advisory Board recently welcomed a new member, Bryan Brockson, to the Brandywine community. Brockson is the director of real estate management at Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union, a position he has held since 2014.

In addition to a noteworthy corporate career, Brockson has a personal connection to Brandywine — where he began his own college journey in 1991.

“I spent my freshman year at the Brandywine campus,” said Brockson. “My time at Brandywine helped me to later transition to University Park with a strong foundation.”

Brockson earned his bachelor of science degree in architectural engineering in 1996, and he went on to earn a master’s degree in engineering management from Drexel University in 2002. After graduating from Penn State, he accepted a position at EDiS, a large construction company, where he worked for 18 years as a project manager and director of business development.

“Each member of the board has a diverse background and experience at Penn State,” he said. “I hope to provide a different perspective and voice to the Advisory Board. In addition, I hope to bolster the promotion of the Brandywine campus within the local business community.”

Connecting with the local community is one of Brockson’s personal strengths. In addition to his new role at Brandywine, he is involved in many community-oriented organizations, including the Penn State Alumni Association, the Rotary Club of West Chester, and the Chester County Chamber of Business and Industry. He also served as chairman of the West Chester Area YMCA from 2013 to 2015 and as chair of the West Chester Area Education Foundation from 2014 to 2016.
