Bob Berry New Owner of Main-Land!

Article as released to the Press:

Darryl Brown has sold Main-Land Development Consultants, Inc. to Robert Berry III.

Darryl Brown of Livermore Falls founded Main-Land Development Consultants, Inc. in 1974.  Under Brown’s leadership, Main-Land grew to become a full service land development consulting firm.  In 2011, Brown was appointed Commissioner of the Department of Environmental Protection.  Later, he was transferred to direct the State Planning Office, where he accomplished Governor LePage’s plans for that office.  In November 2011, Brown sold his company to the President appointed in his absence: Robert Berry III.

Berry, a licensed professional engineer who received a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Maine at Orono in 1994, joined Main-Land in 2004.

As an engineer and project manager at the firm, Berry has worked at designing, coordinating and guiding to successful completion projects throughout Maine including residential, industrial and multi-use developments; churches; commercial developments; institutional improvements; and municipal projects.  Since taking the company’s reins, Main-Land has grown and expanded into Geotechnical Engineering, Geology, and Hydrogeology.  Berry is currently leading site development efforts for the Oxford Resort Casino.

Berry lives with his wife and three sons on the family farm in Embden.

“We want to assure our many valuable clients that we will continue to provide the professional, prompt and personable land planning consulting services our firm has built its reputation upon for nearly four decades.  As we move forward, Main-Land will grow and provide even more services that will add value to our customer’s land,” said Berry.

Darryl Brown Has Left Main-Land

Many of you are already well aware of Darryl’s recent appointment to Commissioner of the Maine Department of Environmental Protection. We at Main-Land are excited for him and for the State of Maine as a whole, as we think he will lead an already hard working and intelligent Department to some positive changes.

On a more somber note, this change means that we lose a dedicated leader, a hard working soils scientist and site evaluator, and positive presence from the company. That said, Darryl has taken steps to make sure that business continues as usual for Main-Land. We can assure all past, present, and future clients that there will be no disruption in our ability to provide the top  notch service that you have come to expect from Main-Land.

Please join us in wishing Darryl success in his new endeavor.
