Jeff Antonaccio

Regional Vice President of Operations

McKibbon is a perfect match for me because I have the good fortune of working in an environment that shares the same core values that I uphold. I am proud to be part of an organization that is so well-respected in the hospitality community.

Jeff stays on top of current events the old-school way: the local newspaper. Maybe that’s why, when it comes to staying informed on the inner workings of McKibbon, this hospitality-industry veteran prefers face-to-face interactions with colleagues. It all amounts to more genuine connections and better communication. As Regional Vice President of Operations, Jeff holds himself accountable for finding the stories (both good and bad), reporting the facts, and of course, meeting deadlines.

The Tampa resident spends a lot of his free time volunteering at his son’s non-profit special needs school, in addition to Starting Now, a Tampa-based non-profit that works to end homelessness among youth. He feels lucky to be part of an organization that supports these particular causes.
