Dr. Brian Stone is one of two new professors hired to teach in the construction and facilities management minor. Dr. Stone was born and raised in Laie, Hawaii but moved to Utah, where he graduated from Timpview High School. He served a full-time mission in Antofagasta, Chile. After his service abroad, he had a chance to attend BYU Hawaii for a year while working as a tour guide at PCC (his favorite job of all time). He returned to BYU Provo to complete his undergraduate degree in business management with an emphasis in organizational behavior and a minor in Spanish. It was in Provo that he met and married his wife, 'Alisi Mo'unga. Dr. Stone then continued his journey in education by earning a master's degree in business management from the University of Utah, with an emphasis in small business development and management.

Following his graduate work, Dr. Stone started a small construction company for 14 years. The business focused on religious and federal contracting in Utah and Washington. He then decided to go back to school and completed his Ph.D. from Arizona State University in construction and facilities management with a research focus on procurement and project management. Dr. Stone has taught in the School of Engineering and Technology at Western Illinois University for eleven years where he reached the level of Full Professor. Additionally, he's participated in research on drone technology used in project management, facilities management curriculum development, procurement/delivery systems, and failed project salvage. Brian and 'Alisi have seven children.
