BrightView Design Group Welcomes Two New Principals

We’re pleased to share that Dan Hoon and Wade Ganes have been named Principals at BrightView Design Group.

Since joining the team in 2005, Dan has successfully helmed a variety of BVDG projects overseas and along the West coast. He’s developed a particular expertise in multifamily and master planning work, delivering projects such as Harmony Grove Village in Escondido, Ascent Apartments in San Jose, and Newhall Ranch in the Los Angeles area. Dan has also taken on an active role in supporting BVDG’s efforts to recruit and train the industry’s top design talent – an area he’ll continue to expand upon as Principal. 

Wade joined our studio in 2004, bringing a unique design perspective rooted in sustainability, holistic application and a focus on user experience. During his years with BVDG, he has contributed design leadership to award-winning projects such as Orange County Great Park and the parks within Great Park Neighborhoods, as well as a number of master-planned communities, parks and recreation, sports complexes, civic spaces, and community gardens. 

As Principals, Wade and Dan will be responsible for directing and implementing the immediate and long-term goals of the studio, while continuing to lead and actively engage in project design and delivery. 

We look forward to their continued leadership as we work to create innovative landscapes that deliver memorable experiences and lasting value for our clients and communities. To learn more about BVDG’s capabilities, please visit
