Brian McCarthy

Brian McCarthy is Founder and CEO of PFNC, LLC, a manufacturer and provider of affordable housing. A 2004 visit to Ciudad Juárez made Brian aware of the poor living conditions and market need along the US-México border. PFNC converts surplus US shipping containers into residences for the 1.1 million laborers who work in maquiladoras, factories for export in México. By utilizing recycled and other affordable building materials, PFNC will deliver deeded homes for under $10,000 per unit while achieving a ‘triple bottom line’. These homes will provide residents with improved safety and sanitation while also enabling wealth creation.
