History of The Brannon Corporation

In the spring of 1977, Tom Barber, an architectural engineer completing a tenure as a presidential appointee in the office of U.S. Housing and Urban Development, teamed with a young civil engineer, Terry Brannon, with experience primarily in city (public works) engineering. Their intent was to meet an unresolved need in East Texas to serve small cities and rural counties with public works engineering services. The partnership, initially known as Barber-Brannon Engineers, expanded rapidly adding grantsmanship and architecture to the services provided to cities, primarily with a population of 10,000 and under.

In 1985, Terry Brannon purchased the stock of the other partners and consolidated the focus of the company back to civil engineering. With the change in ownership came a name change to The C. T. Brannon Corporation also doing business as The Brannon Corporation. In 2000, Rea Boudreaux, Kirk Bynum, and Bob Breedlove took over the reins of the company with a commitment to continue the tradition of excellence into the new century. Terry Brannon became Chairman Emeritus and continues to be a key component in the company’s Aquatics Division.

The company settled into a circa 1910 farmhouse which had been relocated to the city and remodeled into a small castle complete with turret, in the heart of the historic Azalea District in Tyler, Texas. Since 1986 all of the engineering of The Brannon Corporation has come out of this one office.

In 2017, The Brannon Corporation celebrated 40-years of continuous service to our clients, both great and small. Along with our anniversary, ownership was extended to Travis Bozick in 2017 to ensure a smooth transition to the next generation. We look forward to celebrating many more anniversaries to come.
