Joe Taggart

Chief Financial Officer

McKibbon exemplifies a collegial atmosphere. We all link arms and serve our customers with enthusiasm.

When you’re in charge of a commercial real estate portfolio worth more than $2 billion, it helps to have a good sense of humor — and a good playlist. Comic relief and a solid daily soundtrack are two things that help Joe Taggart balance his mostly left-brained career.

As the newly appointed Chief Financial Officer, Joe oversees all McKibbon entities and their finances as well as the McKibbon Family Investment Fund, including accounting, cash management, insurance, property and income tax, partnership-owned finance, and audits.

Joe has more than two decades of leadership experience and financial expertise in commercial real estate which, along with his dependability, accountability, and sense of urgency, makes him the perfect choice to be McKibbon’s Money Man. Prior to joining us, he was the Senior Vice President, Florida CRE manager and stakeholder at Valley National Bank in Tampa.

But Joe’s life is about more than numbers. When he’s not at work, you’ll find him venturing outdoors with his wife and kids or reading a good WWII book. In keeping with the McKibbon Hospitality spirit of giving back and doing good, Joe serves on the boards of the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation and the Early Childhood Council of Hillsborough County – two causes he’s extremely passionate about.
