Scott S. Briggs, President

Mr. Briggs joined Ascend in 2004. From 2004 to 2008 Mr. Briggs managed the Hayward, CA Phase I facilities, and led the development team for Ascend’s Hayward, CA Phase II project. Mr. Briggs currently oversees all aspects of the company including site acquisition, ground lease negotiation, development and construction of Ascend’s projects. In addition, he actively participates in new acquisitions and aviation related real estate developments around the nation for Ascend and its clients.

Mr. Briggs lives in Seattle, WA and holds a B.S. in Marketing and a B.S. in Business Management from Portland State University.

Gary W. Briggs, Founder

Mr. Briggs founded Ascend Development in 2000, in response to an emerging imbalance of supply vs. demand for hangar space in the San Francisco Bay Area to accommodate the growing fleet of privately owned jet aircraft. With a desire to create a new hangar product, Mr. Briggs focused on those individuals and companies that would appreciate the value of owning private hangar space. With finishes and amenities of the highest quality, and privacy and security features commensurate with the other elements of his client’s tastes and preferences.

An admirer of President Ronald Reagan, Mr. Briggs often quoted the plaque President Reagan kept on his desk that read: “There is no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he doesn’t mind who gets the credit.” These types of principles provided the foundation for Mr. Briggs’ belief that the success of a project depends more on the collective success of everyone involved and less on the success of a single individual.

Mr. Briggs passed away in 2017. And although he is no longer involved in the day-to-day operation of the company, his legacy and commitment to an honest customer focused business continues as a guiding light for Ascend.
