Brown will manage the construction and maintenance of interstates and highways as well as other transportation-related projects in 11 counties in south-central Oklahoma.

Most recently, Brown served as Division Three Construction Engineer for the same region, which includes significant sections of I-35 and I-40 as well as many urban and rural state highways, beginning this role in 2001. Prior to this, he worked as the Resident Engineer in Ada and in several engineering roles at the Edmond Residency. He began his career with the department in 1990.
