Rick has already been instrumental in the planning and initial development of Discovery West, and I’m certain he’s the right person to execute our vision as the community continues to take shape.”

BEND, OREGON, UNITED STATES, June 9, 2020 / -- Brooks Resources newly appointed Director of Real Estate Development, Rick Hayes, has taken on the primary leadership and management role in the development of Discovery West, Bend, Oregon’s newest westside neighborhood. An experienced construction and development manager, Hayes has spent 30 years providing strategic leadership for residential and commercial projects.

His role with Discovery West has recently expanded due to the retirement of David Ford, Vice President of Real Estate Development for Brooks Resources. Ford is well-known as the General Manager of NorthWest Crossing for more than 15 years, as well as serving on the Central Oregon Community College Campus (COCC) Board of Directors.

Ford said, "It has been a huge honor for me to be associated with such a great group of people for nearly 20 years, and creating the wonderful neighborhood of NorthWest Crossing. Rick has already been instrumental in the planning and initial development of Discovery West, and I’m certain he’s the right person to execute our vision as the community continues to take shape."

Hayes joined the Brooks Resources team last year. Prior to this role, he served as Vice President of Strategic Operations for Visionary Homes in Bend and as Senior Project Manager for COCC. Over the course of his three decades in the industry, he has worked on residential and commercial development, land acquisition, multiple-site entitlements, and public heavy infrastructure and building construction programs. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Construction Engineering Management from Oregon State University and an MBA from Washington State University. He has been a registered engineer, has held the Project Management Professional Certificate from the Project Management Institute, and serves as the board chair of the KOR Community Land Trust.
