About Jeff Burd

Jeff Burd started working in the information side of the construction industry with McGraw-Hill’s Dodge Reports in 1981. He worked in a variety of management positions with McGraw-Hill, eventually settling back in Pittsburgh in 1991.

head shot 2Burd founded the Pittsburgh Construction News (PCN) in 1994 and began a career of providing information about what is moving the construction and real estate industry in western PA so that regional firms can make strategic decisions about growing and managing their businesses. After the sale of PCN in 2005, Burd founded the magazine BreakingGround, a bi-monthly publication for executives in construction and real estate.  In 2012, he launched DEVELOPINGPittsburgh, a semi-annual commercial real estate magazine done on behalf of NAIOP Pittsburgh.

The magazines were founded in part to highlight the transformation of the region and combat the onslaught of negative media impressions about Pittsburgh at the time. A promoter of all things Pittsburgh, Burd is a regular speaker on the regional and national economy.
