"Helping companies do business in a way that helps the environment is a win-win, and I believe, the only viable approach in the 21st century."

Brian Baird

Vice President

Since joining Core States in 2007, Brian has blended his passion for sustainability, his practical experience in multiple disciplines, and his talent for anticipating and meeting client needs to make energy one of the fastest-growing areas of our business.

He works closely with our engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) group to capture ideas and efficiencies that result in smarter ways to meet client objectives. His easy going personality—a credit to his California upbringing—make him a welcome presence when pressures run high. When he’s not at a project site, Brian enjoys camping, fishing, racing tandem bikes with his wife, and spending as much time as possible with his four children.
