Before his appointment as Chairman of the LC, Dr. Brandy, who holds a Ph.D. in Agricultural Extension from the University of Missouri and a Master of Science Degree in Agricultural Finance and Farm Management from the University of Texas, served as Lead Consultant to the Governance Commission (GC) of Liberia on Land from 2007 to 2009. At the GC, he provided supervision, direction and guidance to the Commission’s land reform program with the key objective of establishing the Land Commission he now heads.

In 2006, Dr. Brandy was appointed National Coordinator of the Food and Agriculture Policy and Strategy Project, a post he held for a year before joining the Governance Commission. While serving in this capacity, he directed and coordinated national efforts under the auspices of the Ministry of Agriculture, and in collaboration with the FAO, IFAD, the World Bank and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), to develop a comprehensive national agricultural policy for Liberia.
