About Jeff

In the fall of 2021, VBFA’s leadership voted to elect Jeff as the firm’s President and CEO, and today he directly oversees the firm’s growth and operations. VBFA’s 140+ employees, loyal client base and hundreds of projects benefit from his leadership. His proven engineering expertise is augmented by his business acumen and VBFA is already recognizing the results of his leadership. When he’s not designing a flagship hospital or mentoring up and coming engineers, Jeff enjoys the outdoors – especially any time he can spend with his family at the cabin or with his fly rod in a river.
