Chief Operating Officer
Jeff Kingsfield, Chief Operations Officer, brings 25 years of Atlanta homebuilding and operations experience to our leadership team. Jeff began his career in homebuilding after graduating from Georgia Tech with his Bachelor of Science Degree in Architecture. After graduation, he joined John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods as a builder and, later as an Operation Manager, was responsible for developing the custom building business while Atlanta prepared for the 1996 Olympics.
Jeff left John Wieland Homes to join a small privately held builder in Paulding County as their VP of Construction. He quickly grew the business and was named President of Southlife Homes in 1998. Southlife was recognized for growing the business into the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Top 10 Builders in Atlanta.
In 1999, Jeff started his own homebuilding company, Vision Built Homes. Once again, Jeff enjoyed solid growth and success while leading the company and navigating its acquisition by David Weekley Homes in 2004. Jeff served as the Atlanta Division President for David Weekley Homes until he rejoined the John Wieland Homes’ team in 2006.
Over the last 10 years, Jeff worked as member of the senior executive team at John Wieland Homes and as the Executive Vice President Sales and Operations for all five cities. In 2011, Jeff accepted the position as the Atlanta Division President. Jeff led the efforts to grow the homebuilding business to over $150M in annual revenue, achieving substantial year over year growth. Over the last 36 months, Jeff helped to navigate John Wieland Homes though two major acquisitions, including the 2015 purchase by The Pulte Group.
He and his wife Kelly have four children from the ages of 14 to 27 and live near Chastain Park in Buckhead. Jeff and Kelly are both avid triathletes and have completed 8 Ironman triathlons on their journey to compete in the World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.
