When we find the perfect location to bring a vision to life, J.B. helps bring it to life behind the scenes. And it’s not just the best part of his job — it’s in his blood.
As a young boy, J.B. remembers looking at a vacant piece of land while his father, Chairman John McKibbon, described everything it could become. Where J.B. saw dirt, his father saw a place where people would one day live, work and play. Today he’s been witness to that transformation many times. But it never gets old.
J.B. joined the family business in 2017, where his role is to provide asset management and financial analysis support for current properties, and development analysis for proposed projects. Simply put, he spends most of his time doing what he loves: helping solve difficult problems, learning new things, and meeting interesting people.
Although the business bears his name, J.B. developed his resume in hospitality at a number of different companies, working his way up from laundry services. It’s that real-world, on-the-ground experience that’s helped shape his understanding of what hospitality truly means.
When he’s not at work, it’s hard to tell where you’ll find J.B. He has a passion for the outdoors, mountains, and a wanderlust that would take him all around the world if he had the time. All he needs is his family, a good cup of coffee, a good pair of walking shoes and an open mind. The rest is adventure.
