Brent Weaver and Family

Brent is a homegrown success story. He was born and raised in Redding where he participated in football, tennis and choir at Shasta High School. He worked at his family's lumberyard from eighth grade through high school. After graduation, Brent attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, and served a two-year mission to Taiwan, where he became fluent in Mandarin. He also studied abroad at BYU's Jerusalem Center for Near Eastern Studies. Brent studied Political Science and earned his degree in International Relations with an emphasis on International Law & Diplomacy. He has a minor in Asian Studies.

Upon returning to the North State, Brent purchased Hughes Plywood in 2003, Hughes Redwood in 2006 and Moss Lumber in 2012, all of which have been renamed Weaver Lumber. He opened his True Value store in south Redding on October 11.

While he was growing Weaver Lumber, Brent also launched a development company and has been instrumental in creating innovative mixed-use projects in downtown Redding. The Gateway Building features three retail/restaurant spaces, four office spaces and four apartments. The Pine Street Lofts have four retail/office spaces and 14 apartments. The California Street Building has two retail spaces and 10 residential studio apartments. To provide low-income housing at his California Street Building, Brent partnered with Northern Valley Catholic Social Services, and he worked with Redding’s Redevelopment Agency on the Gateway Building and Pine Street Lofts to provide nine affordable apartments. Brent has also built 20 single-family homes as well as commercial warehouses and medical buildings.

Though the Great Recession devastated much of the construction industry, Brent’s business has grown by nearly 300 percent in the ten years he has owned it. Because of his wise financial decisions and strong, grounded leadership, Weaver Lumber continues to thrive.

Brent has been a leader with the Boy Scouts of America for seven years, and is currently a den leader. He is a member of The Rotary Club of Redding and serves on the Mercy Foundation North board of directors. He has been a board member for the Shasta Junior Wolves football organization and coaches youth soccer, basketball and football.

In addition to being a forward-thinking entrepreneur and community leader, Brent is a devoted family man. He and his wife, Leanne, have four young children. Together, they are committed to making Redding a safe, healthy and vibrant community.
