His development companies provide complete services from inception through the entire development process including, but not limited to: site selection, land purchase & planning, entitlement, design & architectural, construction, marketing, lease-up or sale, tenant improvements and property management. He is experienced in all types and phases of development including: production & custom homes, apartments, offices, hotels, retail buildings, industrial buildings, medical centers and high-tech facilities.

Mr. Brennan’s current projects include multiple commercial real estate sites throughout Southern Nevada, as well as a 21 acre multi-family & retail project, and a 40 acre 200 home community in North Dakota.
His publishing experience began more than 40 years ago with the purchase of LV Magazine, Southern Nevada’s premier city magazine that boasted a local, national and international audience. He also owned and published Reno Magazine, and Sunworld, an in-flight magazine. After a few years of publishing, he sold the titles and purchased Nevada Business Magazine (formerly Nevada Business Journal), a statewide business magazine with a monthly readership of 120,000. Nevada Business Magazine, in print since 1986, remains Nevada’s only statewide business magazine and is the market leader for decision makers. The magazine has continues to grow its market share.
Mr. Brennan received degrees in Computer Science, Business Administration and Marketing from MMSU. He and his wife, Connie (who is co-publisher of the magazines) have ten children (his two, her two, their two and four adopted) and ten grandchildren.
Lyle says: “Over the years, I’ve been Blessed in spite of myself… I’ve endeavored to run and win all the races and challenges in front of me… I’d take the booty and move on to the next challenge only to finally realize I could never fill the hole in my soul with money, power and accomplishments.” For more on Lyle, check out his Testimony.
