Chairman & CEO
Greenberg Gibbons

Brian Gibbons is recognized as an innovative developer with high-profile projects because of his commitment to his values and his determination to overcome all obstacles.

“We’re a local company that really knows and believes in this market,” he says. “We see tremendous opportunity here, and we’re committed to creating vibrant community gathering places where people can live, work, shop and play while making a positive economic impact on the region.”

Under Gibbons’ leadership, Greenberg Gibbons has completed several landmark projects, including:

  • Foundry Row in Owings Mills, the former Solo Cup manufacturing plant, which is now anchored by Wegmans, LA Fitness and LifeBridge Health.
  • Town Centre at Laurel, the redeveloped former Laurel Mall, which was once closed and is now home to Harris Teeter and Regal Cinemas.
  • Hunt Valley Towne Centre, the former Hunt Valley Mall now anchored by Maryland’s first Wegmans, Regal Cinemas, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Marshalls.
  • Annapolis Town Centre, site of the former Parole Shopping Center and a redeveloped brownfield, now has a Whole Foods, Target, and more than 50 other shops and restaurants. The company also partnered with Mount Olive AME Church to build a 10,000-foot center on the property for local programs, including after-school and parenting classes, and elder care services.

Gibbons, who has a law degree from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, believes a handshake agreement, personal integrity and honesty are just as important as contracts. “Integrity, community, relationships, and innovation are at the center of our core values,” he says. “Our mission is to develop groundbreaking and sustainable retail and mixed-use community assets. We strive to create places we can all be proud of.”
