About Our Name

When our President Judy Dorsey started Brendle Group in 1996, she chose her mother's maiden name, Brendle, as its foundation.

Eileen Brendle Dorsey died of breast cancer in 1970 just short of her 40th birthday. A leading-edge architect promoting green building techniques such as passive solar design as early as the 1950s, Dorsey had plans to start her own firm one day.

Brendle Group's name is a tribute to her aspirations.
