Dee Brown Inc. Looking to Hire Experienced Workers and 
Train New Talent for Immediate Projects


A strong Texas economy, high demand for commercial construction and a continued labor shortage has Dallas-based Dee Brown Inc. (DBI) looking for women and men to fill expanding roles within the 68-year-old stone and masonry company. DBI is looking for both skilled and unskilled workers interested in career opportunities.

“Traditionally, stone & masonry jobs have been filled by men,” said David Masterson, Senior Vice President of Operations at DBI and a third-generation mason. “But we believe there is also a pool of women we haven’t tapped into that would be a great fit for our company. We’re offering a career path with a long-standing, reputable company. We’ll train women and men and help them grow into leadership positions.”

DBI, a third-generation family-owned stone and masonry business, has helped shape the Dallas-Fort Worth landscape over the past seven decades, building many iconic projects locally and nationally. Current and recently completed projects include the SMU Cox School of Business expansion; AT&T Whitacre Tower; Texas A&M University’s Indoor Track Facility; additions to the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library; and high-end residential projects in Houston, Austin and East Texas.

“Our greatest challenge is hiring and teaching the next generation our centuries-old craft,” said Robert V. “Rob” Barnes, III, President & CEO of Dee Brown.  “While we are also adding skilled positions, our future really is in the young women and men who are eager to learn and will take great pride in their work. We’re looking for people who want to be part of a company with a rich tradition that still puts quality first and foremost.”

DBI is looking for experienced mason tenders, stone masons and bricklayers, as well as skilled and unskilled laborers. Individuals must have a willingness to learn and have the proper documentation to work in the United States.

“This is a great career path for anyone who enjoys working with their hands and seeing the results in the finished product,” said Barnes. “When I drive through this city and see all the buildings we have built, I have a great sense of pride. DFW is growing and that brings a lot of opportunity to the next generation. I would like to see more women and men being introduced to this craft as our community expands.”

Interested parties can apply online at, call 214-321-6443, or email for an appointment.

Barnes has grown up in the industry and began his career in 1986 working in the field at the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, where he started as a non-skilled laborer and later trained to become a stone mason’s helper. He received a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from John Brown University in 1992, and his M.B.A. from Southern Methodist University in 2007.

Founded in Dallas circa 1955, Dee Brown, Inc. is responsible for the masonry and stonework on iconic projects, including the American Airlines Center; Nasher Sculpture Center; George W. Bush Presidential Center; Old Red Courthouse; The Getty Center in Los Angeles; Meyerson Symphony Center; Houston Museum of Natural Science; Dallas Country Club; Hunt Oil Headquarters; Trammel Crow Center; AT&T Stadium and many others.
