Brandon Kerr, manager, Facilities Engineering for ConocoPhillips, has joined The Energy Corridor District’s Board of Directors, bringing with him multifaceted expertise in global corporate real estate strategy, transactions, compliance and legal matters.
For the international energy company, Kerr overseas real estate strategy and compliance for a portfolio in excess of 10 million square feet.
As a generalist corporate attorney, he also brings a broad range of experience to The District’s board, including expertise in real estate law, corporate real estate transactions and strategy, tax planning and corporate policy compliance, along with project management.
“We are fortunate to have an individual with Brandon’s global perspective and multidimensional capabilities join our board of directors,” says Clark Martinson, general manager for The District. “Our services are diverse, making Brandon’s broad range of talents and expertise a valuable addition that can help guide our work to make The Energy Corridor one of the nation’s premier places to work, live and invest.”
Kerr fills the position formerly held by longtime ECD board member, bicycling advocate and renowned community volunteer Steve Moskowitz, who retired from ConocoPhillips last year.
At ConocoPhillips, Kerr provides functional leadership to the global Facilities Engineering function within the company’s Real Estate and Facilities Services Organization. There, he manages the execution of building projects; management of global facilities' engineering policies, compliance, business controls and processes; and management of an annual capital spend in excess of $50 million.
The ECD’s newest board member has been providing ConocoPhillips with global real estate and facility-related services and strategies for some 16 years. Before joining ConocoPhillips, Kerr was a partner with Morgan, Baker, Morgan, Meyers, Folks & Kerr, an Oklahoma law firm focused on civil litigation, banking law, commercial real estate transactions, real estate title examination, and creditor/debtor representation in bankruptcy proceedings.
ECD’s board is an all-volunteer board made up of District property owners and their representatives. Board meetings (typically on the second Friday of each month) at The Energy Corridor District offices are open to the public.
